Perhaps it's the pressure of business that made George Bush's usual wheeze of being mysteriously out of town when his pro-life base is in town infeasible. So no phone call to the Roe v Wade marchers from Camp David this year. Instead, a White House press release titled "President Bush Speaks to March for Life Rally Participants" -- which requires a moment's thought to realise that it's not him speaking to the March itself, but to a selected few from those who will march later in the day. The rest of them receive their pro-life message by tape. Maybe Bush uses the freed up time to think of new ways to bomb Iraq into democracy.
