On the Simian Campaign Trail

From Holden:

A couple of quick items culled from Dan Froomkin’s wonderful White House Briefing.

First up: Niceville, Florida. A Bush fan speaks:

Q And the other thing is, is I’m 60 years old and I’ve voted Republican from the very first time I could vote. And I also want to say this is the very first time that I have felt that God was in the White House.

Feller failed to mention just which god was in the White House.

Next: Portland, Oregon. Wanna ticket to see your preznit?

Callers to the Republican Party in Portland were told yesterday that the only way to get tickets was to volunteer to come in and make calls touting Bush to swing voters.
