TPM community scooped everybody on Bush's 18-day gap
Politico had the story three hours after Bush's 5:45PM speech.
But TPM had it at 2:19AM, 15 hours before the speech, and 18 hours before Politico.
So, I take back all those nice things I said about Mike Allen. What was I thinking? And I sure hope Allen--or one of his staff--wasn't vulturing TPM for tidbits, then not giving TPM the link. That would be bad.
