The Republican Base

THE REPUBLICAN BASE….Charming:

President Bush on Friday wished Bill Clinton “best wishes for a swift and speedy recovery.”

“He’s is in our thoughts and prayers,” Bush said at a campaign rally.

Bush’s audience of thousands in West Allis, Wis., booed. Bush did nothing to stop them.

That’s our big-hearted president for you.

UPDATE: Hmmm, maybe not. Sound clip here. I guess there might be a few boos there, but it doesn’t sound like very many.
