Bush Out in Left Field

Today, President Bush landed in a stadium in Palms Park, Florida, on Marine One to make a campaign speech.

From CNN.com:

CNN.com - Bush kicks off daylong Florida barnstorm - Oct 23, 2004

As music blared from stadium loudspeakers, the presidential helicopter, carrying Bush, his brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, and first lady Laura Bush, landed in left field, dusting the crowd with dirt from the warning track. Bush emerged to the theme of the 1980s hit movie "Top Gun."

Hilarious. Just hilarious.

Frankly, I would have expected the GI Joe theme, but Rove knows best.

What an advantage that he gets to fly around Florida-- purely campaigning-- in Marine One. He's President, I won't begruge him it. If the President's going to be campaign hopping, better that he's in the safest possible vehicle. Just means he gets to buy the extra bells and whistles like baseball stadiums and Kenny G compositions. Think Kenny G's voting for W? They've both got that initial thing going. . .

Ohio is pulling away for Kerry. If we can squeak through in Wisconsin, I think we've got it, Florida be damned.

In any case, keep the faith.
