My brother points to Dana Milbank's column in which he reveals Bush's plan to kill the White House press corps:
Do You Hear What I Hear?: Now for an update on the White House's ongoing effort to kill the press corps. The White House travel office signed a contract last week with an airline called Primaris to fly the press corps to Bush events. The two-month-old company has only one airplane. True, media representatives gave their blessing to the deal. But that was before they learned that the company's president twice had his pilot's license revoked related to his flying of an “unairworthy” aircraft, that the chief executive flopped in his last attempt to start an airline and that the 15-year-old plane itself was damaged in a hailstorm a decade ago and spent most of the past two years mothballed in France.
Sununu and now this? There oughta be a law about members of the Bush family coming anywhere near travel plans, nothing good ever comes of it…
Maybe this is finally the wakeup call to the media that they should do some basic fact checking before they go along with the White House. “If you check the airline out first, you might not die. Hmmm, I wonder if that could work for wars too?”

Only tangentially related, but not to be missed, is this from the last paragraph of this WaPo story…
Given the kiss ass treatment the Bush press corps have given him it would be only fair if they were to end up as another of his execution victims.
I wonder if hearing about the loss of the entire press corps plane would give him as big a hard-on as listening to someone being executed as governor or reading the daily casualty lists from Iraq.
Come on, admit it. Bush is a psychopath. Its just that his particular type of serial killing involves having others do the actual murders. That is why he let Bin Laden go, professional courtesy.
