"You Know, So Many People In The Hospital Here, You Know, Are Sick, Anyway ..."

News broke today that former first mother, err, First Lady Barbara Bush underwent heart surgery yesterday.

It was said to repair one part of her aorta, after hardening was found, and she was experiencing shortness of breath.

Hmmmm ...

One could have diagnosed her hard heart, back during Hurricane Katrina.

Barbara Bush: Un-compassionate Conservative

“And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway so this (she chuckled)–this is working very well for them.”.
Yeah, I'm sure it was the dream of every resident of New Orleans, to see the city flooded, so they could go live in a giant arena, and get, you know, free stuff, like food, water, blankets, maybe a donated toy, or something.

I wonder, if any of the new parts put into her were earmarked, say, from a company owned by the doctors' son?

Barbara Bush's Hurricane Donation Earmarked for Son's Business
Former first lady Barbara Bush gave relief money to a hurricane relief fund on the condition that it be spent to buy educational software from her son Neil's company. The chief of staff of former President George H.W. Bush would not disclose the amount earmarked for purchases from Ignite Learning.

Hey, why waste a good natural disaster, and the opportunity to throw a little business the Dynasty's way, right?

As Joe Pesci said in 'Casino', "It's the dollars ... It's always the fuckin' dollars ..."
