President Bush was riding his bike out for a quick ice cream when the latest terror attack, a bomb explosion in an Oakland busway terminal, first came to light, and White House spokesman Tony Hiller said “We didn’t want to bother him?”  Hiller is, however, denying that this is unusual or outside of normal protocol.  “Oh heavens no,” Hiller said.  “What did people expect?  That it was somehow in the nation’s best interests to have the President go back into his fake karate chop pose?  Or for him to have another of his panic attacks.

In a related story, Hiller has been placed an indefinite administrative leave.
