Scared of a grieving mother
Cindy Sheehan is waiting outside Bush's ranch in Crawford to talk to him, but he's been taking a helicopter in order to avoid her:
Yet there was no sign Mr. Bush intends to meet Ms. Sheehan. In fact, there were reports he is travelling solely by helicopter when he leaves the ranch in an effort to avoid racing past the protester in a limousine.
What a brave, brave man. I'm sure we can all take heart at his actions and know that a truly dedicated individual serves us in the White House.
