W to Mama Bush: Hang Up The Phone!!!

Does anybody remember having telephone conversations back in the day and having someone pick up the phone and start dialing or hearing some other sound?

Well, former First Lady Barbara Bush has picked up the phone and evidently she forgot her daily medication I hope.

"Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this, this is working very well for them," Mrs. Bush told American Public Media's "Marketplace" program.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Hugo, we realized that some people were indeed "modernized" one or two generations, but did they have to experience near death and absolute loss to get in the right line?

The not-so-subtle sincerity of such comments really make you wonder if somebody fell asleep in a room that was just painted without proper ventilation.

When the President told the head of FEMA "Brownie, you're doing a heck of a job", I wondered if he was talking about the FEMA director in terms of getting coffee or opening a door or something;)

Clearly he was not talking about FEMA's shuffling of papers and photo ops of the president while a national disaster was unfolding.

But still these events happened after Air Force One dropped to a low altitude in order for the President to observe the damage.

No wonder such empathy is running rampant.

With such comments being thrown around, why not send several buses of "refugees" to stand and pass the coffin of Chief Justice Rehnquist lying in state?

Maybe somebody will "get it" then.

Until then, does anybody have any buttons from the 80s that said "Just Say No To Drugs"?

Even the White House Chief of Staff McClellan made me wonder if somebody is spiking the red Kool-Aid with Ecstasy or Crystal Meth. But no, these are supposedly LOVE drugs.
