Warning - Bypass this post if you don't want to be discouraged.
Laura, Laura, Laura ... It's been awhile
And we can see you're at it again ...
Bad enough you dismissed the whole incompetence of your husband, and his cronies, with your "discouragement" statement (not to mention the soldiers and their families), now, you give the false impression that the Bush Grindhouse is opening its' arms to the - still growing - millions of Iraqi refugees.
Sounds like, Ms. Laura, you need some serious gatekeepers, like the possible next President, Hillary Clinton.
Or listen to former President Jimmy Carter, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, to get some honest advice.
And you're not going to get back to watching your television any time soon.
You've missed the big "American Idol" debacle, and the "Lost" finale ... Likely you won't be sitting up their in the living quarters gazing at "John From Cincinnati" either ...
The new golden boy, Petraeus, isn't talking about ending this thing soon, or even in this decade.
The dwarfs, finks, phonies and frauds that your husband, slavishly, follows down his decomposing legacy want more war, not less, gleefully calling for the carpet bombing of Iran.
You had the chance - we asked you - to put an end to all this by bucking up, and taking on the First Chief Decideress Veto Killer-role, but, you ignored it.
Today's Laura Bush Bummer Bombing-of-the-Day
So, you may get back to watching television, at some point, many years into your post-First Lady days. And you may need it, to distract you from the thumping and beating the historians give you your Commander Guy.
Especially since you have, perhaps, inadvertently called attention to it.
Your little ploy, to get people to donate $61 to the RNC, in honor of The Decider's birthday... Again, get yourself those gatekeepers ... Someone to keep you from putting both feet in your mouth ...
If you had someone like that, they'd tell you highlighting "61" isn't such a great idea ... And with his "legendary" term as a baseball team owner ...
"61" is the number that belongs to the the late, New York Yankee, Roger Maris, and his record-setting feat of breaking Babe Ruth's single season homerun record, back in 1961. And Maris was more vilified for it than heralded. So much so, that, since Ruth hit his homeruns in 154 games, and it took Maris 163 to hit #61, it was deemed his record would have a asterisk next to it.
So, the question has to be asked there, Miss First Lady, are you signaling the historians to designated your husband, and what will be a horrible legacy, with an asterisk. Perhaps tying him with Hoover?
