I'm concerned with what Bush* is doing to my mother
Advertisements [?]
I brought this up yesterday at our local DU gathering.

Mom is 79 and never been one to swear outside of an occasional "damn" or, when really provoked (like when she shattered a piece of her crystal) a "shit". But now, she can't hear Bush*'s name without immediately responding "asshole". She calls Barbara Bush "that old bitch" (which, we all know is true, but Mom's word of choice would once have been "bag", not bitch). She's called Poppy a bastard. She confessed to me tonight that when she watched his press conference today she screamed at the t.v. "You're a lying son of a bitch (also true) and I hope you burn in hell."

This is not my mother... George Bush is corrupting her...How do I explain this to her grandchildren?
