Bush's blacklist: Is George Bush the president of every American, or just those who voted for him? The question seemed to be answered by yesterday's Bush visit to Fargo, a stump speech for Social Security privatization. Forty-two people were blacklisted from attending the public appearance, including activists involved with Howard Dean's presidential campaign, a liberal radio show producer, a college professor, the deputy campaign manager of a 2004 Democratic gubernatorial candidate, and others. Both White House representatives and local GOP officials use the same language--"overzealous volunteer"--to place the blame. If it's just an overly eager Bushie from North Dakota, just a one-time fluke, why does this kind of thing keep happening?
