GWB on Palmeiro: He Has a Good Heart (So do organ donors, George...)

George W. Bush said of baseball playing buddy Rafael Palmeiro before the Baltimore Oriole (and former Texas Ranger--the team that Bush owned) tested positive for steroids that
He's the kind of person that's going to stand up in front of the klieg lights and say he didn't use steroids, and I believe him. Still do.
Uhhh, about that...
And this
[Palmeiro] was one of the few people that came before us who spoke with conviction and decisively that one, he didn't take steroids, and two, anyone who did was making a mistake. And for him now to be held accountable for having steroids in his body is really sad. He almost makes Canseco look good,

Honestly, Congress investigating steroids in MLB ranks right up there in importance with making a law that protects gun manufacturers from getting sued...what's that you say? Such a bill did just pass? Phew, and here I thought Congress wasn't taking care of the business of the American people.
