Coincidence, karma or just the usual liberal media bias?

The president had a very bad day.

From NBC's First Read:

"Yesterday, as Bush campaigned in Nevada, a software entrepreneur who is suing his former business partner issued a statement detailing influence-peddling charges against the former partner and Rep. Jim Gibbons, the GOP nominee for governor ... Tomorrow, Bush is scheduled to spend the day in Colorado, home base of White House advisor [Ted] Haggard, who has resigned from his stewardship of the National Association of Evangelicals in the face of accusations that he paid for sex with a male prostitute. Indeed, Vice President Cheney is actually in Colorado today for a welcome-home rally with troops at Fort Carson and a rally in Colorado Springs, the seat of prominent Christian conservatives such as Haggard and Focus on the Family's James Dobson.


"Bush's day yesterday also included: a reference to Shanksville, PA, site of the United Flight 93 crash on September 11, as Lancaster, PA, per NBC's Kelly O'Donnell; a rare stumble at the top of the steps of Air Force One, per the pool report; and some incident in which Air Force One apparently knocked out the runway lights when it took off from the Elko, NV airport, per NBC's David Gregory."
