Puke 2

Maggie Haberman of the NY Daily news writes:

In another development yesterday, Pataki insisted he doesn't plan to lay the cornerstone for a 1,776-foot spire at Ground Zero during next year's Republican convention.

The comments came after a published report suggesting that rebuilding officials were pushing to break ground for the so-called Freedom Tower during the convention, which will be held in the city in August 2004.

Patakis's non-denial denial raises the next question -- Which Republican does plan to lay the cornerstone duringthe Republican Convention?

Of course, this whole problem could be solved very simply. The White House could simply issue a statement that they have no plans to politicize 9/11 in any way. How hard could that be?
