Poor, poor First Lady Laura.
Her DVD rental bill must be astronomical by now, if she is staying away from watching the television - in order not to be discouraged.
It's bad enough that those darn terrorists over in Iraq give her such discouragement, but yesterday, she had to travel with the Chief Decider down to Blacksburg, Virgina, to attend the Convocation following the terrible gun-caused violent tradegy there.
At least her husband got out in front of that early, and firmly, letting his base and supporters (you know, all those potential Bush Library donors) that he stands tall behind the 2nd Amendment.
Many believe the 2nd Amendment, and the "right to bear arms" means defending the country against invaders, or their own tyrannical government.
And many Iraqis (no, not all of them) are "bearing arms" to defend their country against invaders and occupiers.
Laura, perhaps, is hoping beyond hope that her husband, and the others in the White House, can get one of those generals, or someone, to take the nice new War Czar job and figure all this out.
If the War Czar, and the surge, work out, the First Lady may be able to go back watching television, sans the discouragement, just in time for summer reruns.
