From the Tiger Beat on the Potomac email thingie (thanks Charlie!) that I usually throw away:
MRS. BARBARA BUSH HOSPITALIZED: “HOUSTON — Following is a statement by the Office of George H. W. Bush on the hospitalization of former First Lady Barbara Bush: ‘Former First Lady Barbara Bush was admitted to Methodist Hospital in Houston’s Texas Medical Center yesterday for treatment on a respiratory related issue. She is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care. Updates will be issued when warranted.’”
Belief in evolution among Republicans has dropped more than 10 percentage points since 2009, according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center.
And I suppose after 8 long years of Chimpy McStagger, the Republicans might have a point. (Livewire)
…we offer this reprise showing:
UPDATE: Great minds think alike: One of the Internet Blogger Hall-o-Fame greatest stylists and a personal hero of mine, Jurassic Pork also is calling Chimpy’s Lieberry a collection of pop-up books. Also, too: What JP Said.
George W. Bush Library Set to Open at SMU
The Chimpy McStagger reading room…”will preserve for history the important decisions made by President Bush during his presidency and will embody and carry on the values of President and Mrs. Bush.”
I think that’s a long-winded way of saying that there will be an open bar and a pharmacy.
The so-called smart Bush Jeb (married to a notrorious tax cheat, father of an addict, an anger-management candidate, and a third kid who likes to have under-aged sex in public) is proud of his brother, Chimpy whom he says has no opinions.
This might be the first truthful thing a Bush has ever said on record.
…will be awarded to The Smart Bush–you know, the Bush married to the tax evader, with the addict daughter, the anger-management son, and the other son noted for underaged public sex– who will be on all the Sunday Talkies.
Hasn’t Bush crime family done enough to us?
Barney has gone:
Laura and I are sad to announce that our Scottish Terrier, Barney, has passed away. The little fellow had been suffering from lymphoma and after twelve and a half years of life, his body could not fight off the illness.
Barney and I enjoyed the outdoors. He loved to accompany me when I fished for bass at the ranch. He was a fierce armadillo hunter. At Camp David, his favorite activity was chasing golf balls on the chipping green.
Barney guarded the South Lawn entrance of the White House as if he were a Secret Service agent. He wandered the halls of the West Wing looking for treats from his many friends. He starred in Barney Cam and gave the American people Christmas tours of the White House. Barney greeted Queens, Heads of State, and Prime Ministers. He was always polite and never jumped in their laps.
Barney was by my side during our eight years in the White House. He never discussed politics and was always a faithful friend. Laura and I will miss our pal.
My condolences to the Bush family.
Whoopsie! Germany’s Der Spiegel published an obituary Sunday for former U.S. President George H.W. Bush:
In it, the magazine’s New York correspondent described Bush as “a colorless politician” whose image only improved when it was compared to the later presidency of his son, George W. Bush.
“George P. Bush, a nephew of former President George W. Bush and a son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has filed paperwork with the Texas Ethics Commission, seemingly in preparation for a run for local or statewide office.”
This is Jeb’s boy (one of GHWB’s “little brown ones”), the one with anger-management problems. Not the one with the drug issues, or the one who liked to have underaged sex in public.
