Captain Flightsuit -- to the rescue!
Congressional leaders reached a compromise Saturday on legislation to force the case of Terri Schiavo into federal court....
The White House announced late Saturday that President Bush, who was vacationing at his ranch in Crawford, Tex., would make an unscheduled return on Sunday to Washington, where he would remain until early Monday in anticipation of signing the measure....
[White House press secretary Scott] McClellan said that a bill could be flown to Crawford for the president's signature, but that a woman's life was at stake and Mr. Bush did not want to waste a moment....
--New York Times
Got that? He has to fly from Crawford to Washington because flying the bill from Washington to Crawford would take too long.
Yeah, that makes sense, right?
Christ, the mainstream press will swallow any swill this administration dishes out, won't it?
UPDATE: Or quite possibly the point of this stunt is obvious, and I'm just missing it -- see comment #1.
