  • POLITICS: George W.'s Un-Op Stop in Memphis

    ABC's Jake Tapper, a self-acknowledged acolyte of the King's who made his journalistic bones as an online columnist for Salon, showed off his Elvis-themed tie Friday, as he - like The New York Times' Maureen Dowd and several score other national reporters - filed stories from the car museum across Elvis Presley Boulevard from Graceland.

    That's as close as most observers - tourists, protesters, reporters what-have-you - got to the grounds of the late music icon's mansion, or to the National Civil Rights Museum, where President Bush, Japanese Prime Minister Koizumi, and the rest of their party made an impromptu stop, or to the downtown Rendezvous Restaurant, where the two heads of state and a largish retinue of local officials finished off their highly private whirlwind tour of Memphis.
