Staged Iraq troop interview - so what's new?

Lots of controversy over President Bush's carefully choreographed interview with well-rehearsed soldiers in Tikrit. But what do you expect from a guy who walked around soldiers with a fake turkey? And it's not really different from a reporter slipping a question to a soldier who questioned Rummy about Humvee armor a few months back. The main difference being that the reporter's question demonstrated a concern for the well-being of our troops (even if it was prepped, it was still a valid question, a point missed by many neocons), while Bush's screened Q & A demonstrated a concern for Bush's sinking poll numbers. Gobble. Gobble.
