Disarming Howard Dean

I know it’s serious when Laura Bush is irritated enough to speak:

Laura Bush described as “disgusting” comments by rapper Kanye West and Democratic chairman Howard Dean blaming her husband for the disproportionate numbers of black hurricane victims.

“I think all of those remarks are disgusting, to be perfectly frank, because of course President Bush cares about everyone in our country,” the first lady said Thursday in an interview with American Urban Radio Networks.

“And I know that. I mean, I’m the person who lives with him,” she said. “I know what he’s like and I know what he thinks and I know how he cares about people.”

I think the media vastly underestimates how much the American people value the judgement of someone who generally stays out of the fray.

The less someone talks, the more people listen.



  1. I know it’s serious when Laura Bush is irritated enough to speak

    Is that because she’s a Laura and you intrinsically trust her because of that factor? Or is it because she’s the First Lady? 🙂

  2. Because she’s a Laura. Of course.
