Bush and Snow: A Pair For The Ages

Two members of the GOP have personally disrupted my normal thought process yesterday.

George Bush, leader of the free world and President of the United States visited Northern Kentucky University yesterday. NKU is a somewhat small campus with only four ways into or off of the campus. Needless to say, the campus was shut down due to the Pres' visit. The employees were allowed to leave work at 11:30am Friday morning, as not not get trapped in the chaos.

No one had to tell me twice. I left at 12pm.

Then I find out that Tony Snow, a native of Cincinnati (or atleast he graduated from Princeton High School) used the term "tar baby"!

How can a person make it to be Press Secretary for the White House and not realize that using that term, either directed towards someone or not, would cause uneasiness among a segment of the US population that is already under a great amount of stress caused by this country's leadership (or should I say, lack there of)?

What a day.
