Girl runs away from Bush, chipmunk

Maybe it was the president. Or that giant chipmunk mascot.

Something made little Emily from Kentucky run away crying after she was called out onto the field to meet President Bush on the South Lawn yesterday after a tee-ball game. Emily took a few steps toward Bush, then a lot more steps back, hugged the fence looking terrified, got pulled up there by some adults and then ran away.

She was going, going, gone.

Lots of kids get nervous during big moments (meeting Santa and birthday parties for example). So, Emily, it's OK. There are a lot of congressional Republicans running away from Bush during this election year too.
