So a member of the Bush family had her e-mails hacked (some family friends also suffered the same fate), and some various awful things got published online—including implications on the health of George H.W. Bush, who recently left the hospital—as well as some amusing but innocuous things, like self portraits George W. Bush painted of himself.
Update: Originally posted a pic of Bush’s artwork, but then felt guilty about doing so. So here’s a version of the story without the pics. *sigh*
Let’s say you’re Sarah Palin and you just got criticized by a former first lady. How would you handle the criticism? Well, in Sarah Palin’s case, this is how: “I don’t want to concede that we have to get used to this kind of thing, because i don’t think the majority of Americans want to put up with the blue-bloods — and i want to say it with all due respect because I love the Bushes — the blue bloods who want to pick and chose their winners instead of allowing competition.” She said that on Laura Ingraham’s show yesterday. So, to be clear, she just ripped on a former president and first lady for being privileged because they suggested she was unqualified to be president. Check. source
I sat next to her once, thought she was beautiful and I think she’s very happy in Alaska — and I hope she’ll stay there.Former First Lady Barbara Bush • Saying something basically designed to piss off Sarah Palin. Bush, most recently in the news for this strange number, was interviewed (along with her husband) by Larry King in an interview to air Monday. George the elder, for his part, likes some of the Tea Party’s ideas but is confused by what the party is and their plans ”to get Republicans in Congress to do something.” source (via • follow)
