Open Thread

George W. Bush is having a harder time inhabiting a bubble where he never has to run into a protestor/critic. In Pennsylvannia, his campaign bus rolled down the highway and supporters and protestors were not segregated, but mixed up together. Poor George saw all kinds of dissent including signs from a young mother saying "Shame on You".

This is a good sign. Frankly, I worry more about Bush living in a world where he is totally protected from real American reactions to his policies than having him have to see some of the protests that great numbers of Americans feel.

Okay, now go for it.

Update: Joe Gandelman sends a link that Bush gave some of the protesters the finger when he saw their signs. Do follow the links in his post.
