You won't believe the degree Barbara Bush got
accoring to cnn a Humanities degree, the supposedly leftist department. And the Right wing shit novelist tom wolfe was there. I would expect them to get business degrees or something, but this just makes the humanities look bad, unless she is an incognito liberal, like laura supposedly was, i just got buy laura bush as too far right, she was a librarian, and her favorite hobby is reading literature.

3. The Bush family is not made of Republican Conservatives
It's made up of opportunists who will do anything grab and retain power.

5. Humanities in my Catholic HS was Religion, History and English
all combined into one. It really sucked.

6. Hell, the chimp's degree was in history ...
"He returned to New Haven to study at Yale and received his bachelor's degree in 1968, majoring in history."

8. Li'l Barb Bush is not George W. Bush
I don't mind taunting the Tequila Twins on occasion, but they plainly don't deserve the constant outrage a lot of us show them. They have their own lives and it's probable that one, or both of them are more liberal than their Daddykins.

And no, just because they'll be showing up at Daddy's campaign functions and looking pretty doesn't mean they're fighting us hammer-and-tong.

The Humanities will survive. It's going to take more than the daughter of a hated president to bring down the centuries-old edifice that is the Arts and Letters.

I know, the Rectal Right was merciless with Chelsea Clinton and with Amy Carter. But the Rectal Right is completely lacking in manners, morals, ethics, humanity, humility, or "class". We don't have to follow that example.

10. I also hear that she was as bad a student as her old man.
No doubt that she graduated with a "C" average, that's the grade she got to get in an architecture class that she actually FAILED! :mad:

Barbara Bush a scholar? BULLOCKS! :puke:

11. Maybe an "anti-humanities" would be more fitting?
Perhaps they could take a class on how to dress too. For as much money as they have they dress like tramps.
