08/04/2005: Thought for the Day:
Under perhaps the best Washington Post headline of the summer – "Bush Backs Rove, Palmeiro, 'Intelligent Design'" – Dan Froomkin reports that the President goes along with the ex-Ranger's story: "Rafael Palmeiro is a friend. He testified in public and I believe him."
But which Palmeiro does Bush believe? The one who said, "I have never used steroids. Period," in March – or the one who said Monday, "I have never intentionally used steroids. Never. Ever. Period."?
More Bush: "He's the kind of person that's going to stand up in front of the klieg lights and say he didn't use steroids, and I believe him. Still do." Even though Bush hasn't been a baseball owner in more than a decade, he hasn't forgotten how to look the other way. Somehow he still finds time to practice.
