Or in a museum of antiquated paradymes.

I am glad she finally pulled her own xanax curtain out of the way. More holes need to be poked into this plastic excuse for a president's partner, until all the hot air drains out and people see her for who she is--definitely NOT one of us.

Also this blog entry from Tim Grieve 9/2 which you have probably seen already (it is a Sa1on Premium post so I can't link):

The first lady: That's just the way it is

Laura Bush just wrapped up a press conference at a sparkling clean and orderly refugee center in Lafayette, La. In a remarkable bit of understatement, she observed: "This doesn't really look like what we're seeing on television."

The first lady acknowledged that relief efforts have "not been adequate" and are "not the kind of response the federal government wants." Still, she said that the people she'd met in her visit -- a mother who had lost a child, a child who had lost a mother -- were "glad" to have found refuge inside Lafayette's Cajundome.

What about the people still stuck in New Orleans? Bush was asked about the fact that most of them are poor and black. That's just the way it is, she said. "This is what happens when there's a natural disaster of this scope," Bush said. "The poorer people are usually in the neighborhoods that are the lowest or the most exposed or the most vulnerable. Their housing is the most vulnerable to natural disaster. And that is just always what happens."

Squid:
Barbara is Bush's *mom*; Laura is his wife. What a foolish, foolish family. I used to give Barbara more credit than that but no more. I don't know how they live with themselves.

GIR says to me this morning, "Oh no Rumsfeld is on TV and his lips are moving."

I called back from my office, "Then you know he's lying."

Trite and cliched but oh so true.

Kris

I like the island idea...hmmm...how to make that happen? Perhaps we can find a good island off of the Gulf Coast and see what happens...

Thanks for everything you are doing buy the way. Your words are powerful, but your actions speak a HUGE volume! Kudos.

squid

Thank for catching my mistake. I was so tired last night that I didn't even notice that entitled indifference had poked its ugly head through on two tiers, not just one.

squid

Oh fuck, that would be "thankS." No more typing for me until I've had more sleep, more coffee, or fewer children.

True colors of Barbara Bush have shown up at various times over the years and for some crazy reason, just because she looks like Everyone's Grandma, the press just lets it go. Would someone please explain to me just why the entire damn Bush family's insensitivity has always been so acceptable? Is it because of how they look? Well, is it? Just about all of them sicken me.

Stephanie

Kris,
I think we should stick them on an inflatable island in the middle of that darned oil slick that is building up off the coast from leaking oil platforms. No food, no water, no clothes (except what they have on already because the thought of their nekkidness makes me truly squeamish), one bar of soap, no nuttin' until the rest of the Gulf Coast gets back on their feet. One disaster relief expert today on NPR said she thought it would be a good 5 years before New Orleans was back to full speed.
