Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.
In my view - Barbara Bush is a fabulous woman and doesn't deserve flack from anyone.
Most people strongly or somewhat agree with that view - I remember hearing of different polls about Barbara and President Bush - people loathed Bush but really like Barbara. She's done nothing wrong.
So why the **** is Palin poking at her as if she's done something horrible?
I don't get it. . . and I hope it comes around to bit Palin in the alaskan ass.
A screaming comes across the sky.

Barack Obama yesterday landed a right hook on one of his biggest left-wing supporters yesterday - blasting MoveOn.org for labeling Gen. David Petraeus "General Betray Us."

She's right, but I don't see how she's any less.
I may be wrong.
I now strongly suspect that if the Obama popularity numbers continue to slide another five to ten points over the next six months, and no real consensus GOP candidate emerges, that Palin will absolutely jump in and believe she can win at least the nomination.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Of course. Look at the history. However - poppy Bush is a different animal who simply suffered from Reagan's policies catching up with him. Poppy has the street cred (Military, CIA chief, legislator), and I actually liked him. Still do.
When this idiot of a woman can figure out that making yourself a public figure puts a target on your back, maybe she'll chill. But from what I can tell right now, her whole shtick is making pissed off people more pissed off. And they say the left does nothing but react emotionally... Sigh...
Of course, there was that whole Prescott Bush orchestrating a coup of the Roosevelt administration and maintaining German business contacts thing in the 30's. That, however, would be a treasonous bastard and not a blue blood.
