What "compassion" means to Bush
Hey everyone, check out Bush's definition of "compassion".
Apparently, it means talking to black people.
(Thanks to reader K.Y. for catching this "disturbing trend".)
Update: From Lis in the message boards:
Looking at further photo albums on the site makes it more clear how anomalous the Compassion section is.And RonK emailed to remind that Slate's Will Saletan noted a short while back that when Duhbya calls somebody "gifted", "He doesn't mean exceptional. He means ethnic."
Saletan provides chapter and verse re blacks, Iraqis, Palestinians, Hispanics, Chinese, Russians, Irish, Cubans, and South Koreans.
