"Oh, I know that very much," Laura Bush responded. "And believe me, no one suffers more than their president and I do when we watch this, and certainly the commander in chief, who has asked our military to go into harm's way."
Laura, Laura, Laura ...
Have you been peeking?
Are you going around the White House, ducking into empty rooms and sneaking on the television?
Are you and the Chief Decider really suffering more than anyone else, over the deaths in Iraq?
More than Jessica Lynch and the Tillman family?
You do understand that it is your husband, the Commander-in-Chief, the Chief Decider who has caused this suffering, and your discouragement?
After all, he was the one that ordered the troops (after, of course, the intelligence was cooked, and his buddies Andrew, and Karen, and Scooter, and Stephen and all the others, went out and sold this war) to invade and occupy Iraq.
And his latest Golden Boy, Army Gen. David Petraeus is talking about all of this continuing, that "clearly is going to require enormous commitment and commitment over time."
And now, and be sure to listen carefully, you can be a big help.
You want to get back to watching television, without the suffering, without the discouragement, right?
Well, you need to become the First Chief Decideress Veto Killer. You need to pigeon-hole that husband of yours and lay down the law. Don't let him leave until he's agreed to sign the new bill the Congress will be sending to him, the one passed today, that, yes, gives him the funding, but also starts to wind this thing down and bring home the troops.
You need to tell him that the both of you need to stop suffering, and that you want to get back to sitting down and watching your television without getting all upset and discouraged.
Get his father (the real one, not the Higher One) to help you. He can pitch that by signing the bill, it will go towards ending some of that "Bush Fatigue".
It's up to you Laura. Happy television viewing, or more suffering, it's in your hands.
