    They both willingly live in a bubble.  

    I'm reminded how the only way Bush appeared in public for seven years was at highly controlled GOP love fests, especially during his 2006 campaign.

    And in conjunction with those events, the Bush WH introduced the wrongly-named "free speech zones".  A more apt name would be "quarantine zones."

    All that McCain has done is slapped a "new and improved" label to Bush's bubble speeches.

    Wait, scrap that.  Dave's description of McCain's town halls sounds is exactly like Bush's public appearances as he  attempted to build support for social security overhaul.  

    Bush Takes Social Security to 2 'Town Halls'

    To make his case, Mr. Bush held two town-hall-style meetings with younger and older workers, events that recalled some of the most carefully orchestrated, and successful, moments of his re-election campaign last year. There were teachers, preachers, recent retirees and a widow, all embracing elements of his message.

    And we know how well that went...

    We're in a culture that increasingly holds that science is just another belief. - Alan Alda
