President Bush may be excruciatingly slow in responding to major national disasters affecting millions, but he's decided he won't be caught flat-footed when it's time to dance for the masters of political correctness. Suddenly, he's a veritable first responder.
Only this morning did I first read Nancy Pelosi's strange demand that the president (with whom Bennett has never had any sort of professional relationship that I'm aware of) condemn William Bennett's remarks. And by this afternoon, the White House had actually done it. Maybe if Bennett had gone up and sat on his roof in his underwear, the president might have given it a few days before doing anything.
That's the Bush White House. Always looking after the base.
