President Bush pelted with babies

Following his use of the presidential veto to kill the Stem Cell Reseach Enhancement Act, President Bush was confronted by angry pro-stem cell protesters at a rally in Washington D.C. today. Foresaking the traditional barrage of tossed eggs and tomatoes, some protesters began hurling babies at the President with cries of "You can't catch them all!".

Witness, Dilbert P. Scheffenshaft told us "It was one of the most unusual things I've ever seen. The president emerged smiling and ignored the calls from the crowd and suddenly there was a baby flying through the air. I think the crowd just got carried away, because after the first one there were babies flying around everywhere."

Aside from a minor incident of nappy leakage, the president was unharmed and was quickly rushed to a baby proof secure room by security aides. Protesters continued to hurl babies until police were able to bring the situation under control.

Mrs. R. Badger was visiting Washington from Missouri and had attended the raly hoping to see the President. "I voted for him twice", she said "And he's a good catch".

A Whitehouse spokesperson confirmed the incident but commented only that "the President was well aware that there was some controversy over the veto".
