 It's not true that the Democrats plan to ask a puppy to  deliver the response to President Bush's next weekly radio address. But if they did, that puppy could expect a whipping. That's what 12-year-old Graeme Frost and his family got after Democrats recruited Graeme to respond to Bush's veto of the State Children's Health Program.  Should everyday people (especially  those who  are brain-injured like Graeme) be used in this way by one party and attacked by another? Dick Weiss and McGraw Millhaven discuss this and more on the McGraw Show on KTRS (550 AM). Click the link above to listen to or download the podcast.

Dick's media segment airs each Monday at 11:05 a.m.
