Bush at Virginia Tech

I don't know which is worse. The calculated tremolo in cable news anchorlets' voices as they discuss the events in Hokieville? Or George Bush laying it down thick over private griefs he had (this time) nothing to do with, thank God?

At least when Bill Clinton feels your pain, when he tears up in the eye nearest the camera, he actually does get a measurable twinge and a moment's 24 karat discomfort. Bush is a little too gory to wear the widow's weeds.
