Estimates of Protesters of Bush Visit in Atlanta Move Up

Now the Associated Press is estimating 700 protesters of the Bush visit to the Martin Luther King tomb in Atlanta today ... and on network news tonight it looked more substantial than that.

The amazing news is that George W. actually heard dissent for the first time in his presidency ... considering that his Secret Service, with Karl Rove calling the shots, decided it might not be all that politic to have pics on the evening news of police hauling off black people in the paddy wagon in full view of the TV cameras.

So the protests were actually allowed to go on in ear-shot of the president, which is not at all in keeping with the practice of this White House and its armed forces. Shrub has virgin ears, don't you know! And he must not under any circumstances hear any dissent!

Can't wait for the March for Choice and Women's Lives in Washington, D.C., on April 25th!
