Susanna Rodell on the Bush- Sheehan standoff

The Charleston Gazette - Columns: "George, George, why don’t you just invite the lady in for a cup of coffee? Sure, it’d be uncomfortable. But you could deal with it — couldn’t you? Think of it as one of those painful but necessary things in life, like getting your shots when you were a kid. Grit your teeth. Look concerned. Don’t call her Mom. Tell yourself that by doing this, you’ll be saving yourself the continuous headlines, the vigils, the inconvenient rabble gathering outside your ranch. You can say, Hey, all she wanted was to meet with me — well, she got what she wanted. Now can we please move on?"

Great column as usual from this underappreciated writer.
