As if by magic, federal storm aid arrives just in time for a presidential visit.

Anyone notice a pattern here?

As we noted the other day, the White House authorized federal funds for storm relief in New York last month just in time to give Rep. Tom Reynolds something to discuss that wasn't the Mark Foley scandal.

Now, as George W. Bush heads for campaign stops in Missouri, the White House is announcing federal aid for storm relief there, too. As the Note notes, the timing is just a little peculiar: The storms in question hit Missouri in July.
