A Deadly Fundraiser

After raising funds for the corrupt New Mexico senator Pete Domenici, our shrub managed to get another cop killed:

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - A police officer died Monday after crashing his motorcycle while riding in a motorcade as President Bush prepared to leave the city following a fundraiser for Sen. Pete Domenici.

Rio Rancho Officer Germaine Casey, 40, was rushed to an Albuquerque hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The motorcycle was near the front of the motorcade, and the president saw the wreck as he drove past on the way to the airport, said Rio Rancho Police Department spokesman Officer John Francis.


That our shrub was raising money for Domenici, who violated the law to get the New Mexico attorney fired for political reasons, is bad enough. It's tragic that an officer lost his life protecting these corrupt bastards.

So fucking wrong.

Damn them. This is sick.

That's such a sad thing.

I used to hate when any President would tie up Chicago traffic coming in and out of the city.

But my inconvenience was nothing compared to this....

Bush issued a statement saying he was saddened by Casey's death and extraordinarily grateful for his protection.

"It is a high calling to choose to serve and protect your fellow citizens, and I will always be indebted to Officer Casey's service," the president said, adding that the officer's wife and two teenage children were in his thoughts and prayers.

Won't shed a tear, will he?

By the way, what does it mean to be indebted to someone's service?

I would rather say, I am indebted to the person. You know? If you are indebted to someone for their service, that's one thing.

But he's acknowledging no actual debt to anyone.
