Rumors are part of politics, and have been forever. But we heard one last week that set our brains spinning. In an effort to highlight the GOP's git-'er-dun capabilities, the plan is to let President Bush make a triumphant entrance into the Twin Cities by having his helicopter land on the newly-completed span of the 35W bridge. Seems by some coincidence that the bridge that fell down a year ago, killing 13 people and injuring well over a hundred more has been completed just in time for this entirely non-political event. Because playing politics with tragedy is simply wrong.
But thanks to the intrepid Tild and the Cucking Stool investigative team, we have some of the details on the advance planning for this glorious return.
