Flimsy Sanity: Bushford Wife

Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Bushford Wife

Am I the only one that thinks Laura Bush looks like a Stepford wife? And how can she call herself a librarian? The librarians are the ones most active in trying to preserve our first amendment rights - be it privacy when the cops want to see what books you checked out, running anti-censorship campaigns or speaking out on net neutrality. I think a librarian has been replaced with a machine.

Part of me thinks that spouses of politicians should be off-limits but their actions are important. I know the Republicans hate Hillary but at least she voiced her opinions about healthcare and Rosalynn Carter is fairly vocal. The Republican President's wives are pretty docile and wimpy. Sure Nancy had her "Say no to drugs" campaign, but that was only after the press attacked her for ordering expensive new china and she needed a diversion. She could have cared less about the warped drug policies (George Carlin says we could stop the drug trade by putting a few bankers in jail). Barbara Bush was strong but very flawed as we saw in her compassion toward brown people in Katrina's waters. I think you learn a lot about a man when you see who he choses for a wife. A smart, confident man picks a smart confident woman, someone who will be a partner in a team. An aggressive, arrogant man chooses someone meek who will be his cheerleader.

    You are not alone in your assessment. There are many who think the same thing. Laura is said to be dipping deep into the meds and she would have to in order to live with Dubya.

    Laura the librarian; child of Democrats; never moved much beyond her home town of Midland, Texas until she married George. An insular, easily-influenced, religious woman with no experience of Life. As you rightly note, Flimsy, the perfect wife for an aggressive, arrogant man from Texas.
