Dentist Likes Russert's Toothless Style. The Daily Howler comments on the Russert/Bush love-in last Sunday: "Bush boasted about his cooperation with the 9/11 commission -— a commission which has routinely complained about the president's lack of cooperation. But Russert ignored this odd statement too. What would Bush have said if challenged? The public will never find out. ... The bulldog had left his teeth in a jar." Russert was apparently quite pleased with his performance, however. He told the Buffalo News that the day after the interview he went to the dentist and "the dentist, the receptionist and the hygienist started clapping, it was really sweet." ... Check out the many news links at Daniel Froomkin's White House Briefing, including this one from the Memphis Flyer: "Two members of the Air National Guard unit that President George W. Bush allegedly served with as a young Guard flyer in 1972 had been told to expect him and were on the lookout for him. He never showed, however; of that both Bob Mintz and Paul Bishop are certain."
