Bush to Take Unscripted Audience Questions – New York Times:

Move over, Oprah. President Bush is making himself into television’s newest talk show host by making audience participation a feature of his appearances.

Bush has been taking questions from audience members in recent speeches, and the White House says none has been prescreened. The sessions are not open to the public, but instead limited to invited groups.

That this is a headline at all is frightening. The President will answer questions. Wow. But, it turns out, he’ll only do it in private, where no one can hear him say it. It’s like a bad dream we can’t wake from.
