What Were They Thinking?

It's tempting to slam the Washington Post -- or writer Dana Milbank -- for a cheap shot in this "ouch" headline -- "During National Character Counts Week, Bush Stumps for Philanderer" -- and subsequent story.

But the real blame has to go to the White House political operation and the National Republican Congressional Committee. What the heck are they thinking putting the president of the United States in such an awkward position?

Rep. Don Sherwood's problems are hardly a secret. Heck, the man has cut an ad admitting that
he had cheated on his wife but had NOT choked his mistress (the best confession to /denial of bad behavior since Bob Marley admitted to shooting the sherriff, but NOT his deputy).

How in God's green Earth do you have the POTUS campaign for a guy like that?

Of course, dropping Bush into this campaign lends even more credence to the belief that Republicans are desperate and do ANYTHING to hold onto a seat -- even sully the president in a campaign stop for a slimeball.
