Bush in Arkansas -- UPDATE



First report, from Doug Thompson of Morning News. He will be lunching with the Ayatollah Womack in Rogers. Perhaps a little compassionate conservatism will wear off on the mayor.

IDIOT UPDATE: Against  broad national consensus in favor of extending health care coverage to children of the hard-working lower middle class, Bush tried to make the case that this is expansion of federal government provided medicine. Yeah, terrible. Like Medicare. What a disaster that has been. It's only been an abiding comfort to tens of millions, lifted the elderly poor out of grinding poverty and administered at a cost far below that of private industry. What we need is Halliburton-style health care. Poor care at inflated prices available only to the lucky few.

And here's updated coverage, if you can stand it.
