Bush leaves the Evergreen State - and we say good riddance

Dubya has come and gone from Washington State:
President Bush made a brief stop in the Seattle area this morning to raise money for Republican candidates in Washington.

Air Force One touched down at Boeing Field at 9:45 a.m. through low clouds. An Issaquah woman, Sheryl Sheaffer, whose three soldier sons, and only children, now serve in the Army in Iraq and Afghanistan, was to be among the greeting party for Bush.
And here's the photo that we've been longing to see for a very, very long time:

Reichert Appears With George W. Bush

There can no longer be any doubt: Dave Reichert is a Bush Republican.

And it turns out that Karl Rove didn't just send Bush here...he came himself:
Rep. Dave Reichert, R-Bellevue, and presidential aide Karl Rove disembarked from the plane, along with Bush.
Good riddance to Rove, too.

One last note: As I drove over to the rally in Westlake Center this morning, I observed several state patrol cars parked along the shoulder at the Medina exit, a state trooper positioned on the pedestrian bridge near Lake Washington, and several WSDOT utility trucks with cones and other tools.
