Jerk in Chief

Get tickets to the Daytona 500, and the damn preznit ruins your day.

DAYTONA BEACH -- Race fans say the commander in chief took command of their seats.

Some Daytona 500 attendees seated near President Bush's suite Sunday complained they couldn't return to the grandstands after using the bathroom, grabbing a soda or buying a T-shirt.

Daytona International Speedway officials responded Monday by placing a formal apology on the track's Web site for any inconveniences fans faced while Bush met NASCAR drivers, posed with military personnel and gave television and radio interviews.

You know, this is one of those relatively minor things which, if it had been Clinton, would have been a national outrage for 3 weeks.
