No Ambiguity

Everyone’s been talking about President Bush’s hugging the girl whose mother was killed in the 9/11 attacks. If you haven’t yet read it, read it now. In addition to that, Hugh Hewitt references an item about the president keeping his promise to go running with a soldier who lost a leg.

Stories like these do not make the nightly news on the broadcast networks. If they do, they’re usually accompanied by a suspicious tone. The irony is that if these stories were about Kerry, no one would even need a suspicious tone—no one would believe them anyway. With President Bush, the man who admittedly choked on a pretzel, there is no ambiguity.
