Bush in Grand Rapids

President Bush will be in Grand Rapids today, kicking off a major policy speech on "death and destruction" regarding the Iraq civil war policy. This is clearly what wealthy midwestern fifteen-year-olds are concerned about. Looking at a map of campaign contributions, it's no surprise why he chose to visit that part of the state.

His 44-member hand-picked audience will probably be presented by the mainstream media as an enthusiastic welcome. However, there are some chinks in the armor up there, and there is still a protest planned. It'll be interesting to see what kind of coverage both sides receive.
