Excerpt Of The Day #2: What It’s Like To Be George Bush

On the subject of headlines and buried ledes, just imagine that your local newspaper, read by everyone you know, wrote a story saying that you were accused of some horrible act – let’s say rape for the men, child beating for the women. Imagine that the headline and opening dozen paragraphs of the story herald the accusations made against you. Then in the thirteenth paragraph of the story they say that DNA tests have cleared you of the rape (for the men) or that an investigation had found no evidence of child abuse (for the women). Let’s say that your local television news picks up the story, and reports the accusations, but doesn’t bother to report the DNA or investigation results. That is what George Bush must feel like every day. — Lorie Byrd at Polipundit
