“But why should we hear about body bags, and deaths, and how many, what day it’s gonna happen, and how many this or what do you suppose? Or, I mean, it’s, it’s not relevant. So, why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?”
Barbara Bush on ABC’s Good Morning America, March 18, 2003
Mmmm…let me guess: because your husband and son helped fill so many of those body bags? Because you’re a human being and part of the human race? Because you are your brother’s keeper?
Or, because normal people tend to have consciences?
“Beautiful mind” or “pretty mind,” it’s difficult for me to see how such a cold attitude could ever be considered attractive by anyone!
And it couldn’t be true, of course (evidence notwithstanding) that Barbara Bush’s father is actually a certain scandalous personage…could it? A Mysterious Someone who would have passed down DNA that could make her haughtiness more…understandable, even as it stinks up the place?
