Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch...
Newsday.com - World News:
Bush briefed on intense fighting

Actually, the location pretty much says it all, but to continue:
Bush, at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, through Easter Sunday, got an update on fighting by U.S. Marines in the Sunni Muslim stronghold of Fallujah. Bush spoke via a secure [ed: why do they have to emphasize this?] video conference call with his national security advisers. The call was to have included Gen. John Abizaid, commander of the Central Command which has jurisdiction in Iraq, and L. Paul Bremer, the top U.S. civilian in Iraq.
What the **** is he doing on vacation when 1) slaughter is happening in Iraq and 2) his National Security Advisor is due to testify to his presidential inquiry tomorrow?

Maybe he'll parachute into Iraq on Sunday dressed like the Easter Bunny and bring the troops an Easter Turkee? (as Atrios might say)
