hints at the thing that bugged me about today's 9-11 Commission testimony news -- why is the WH offering that W and Cheney do a joint, private appearence? The only explanation I can think of is embarrassing for W -- that Rove et al. don't think W can be trusted to respond to Commission questions by himself. Instead, he needs Cheney along to make sure he doesn't screw things up too bad. Why not a joint public appearence?
Anyone have a more benign explanation? I mean, if that is the case, how sad is it that our President is such an incompetent ninny that his own supporters can't trust him to go testify before a body where everything isn't scripted out?
