It's yet another one of those coincidences that seem to hound Fearless Leader. Via Josh Marshall:
If President Bush really wants to tell the Swift Boat group's funder, Bob Perry, that he doesn't like the ads he's paying for, maybe he can bring it up at the fundraiser Perry is cohosting in New York next week.

President Bush, Karl Rove, and Tom DeLay are all scheduled to be there.

The Dallas Morning News got the story. But when they asked Perry's spokesman what the deal was, he suddenly hadn't heard a thing about it.

Perry's spokesman Bill Miller says he was surprised to see his boss's name on the list.

"He told me, 'I never approved the use of my name. I'm not going to be there,' " Mr. Miller told the News.

Josh also has some interesting things to say about Bush's moral cowardice. It's a must-read.

Note: The original version of this post wrongly implied that the current president was attending the fundraiser, not his father. TPM regrets the error, though it's a common one in this era of family dynasticism.
