I Have a Question About our "Beloved" first frump!
I know that many here at DU refer to laura bush as "pickles", but what's the source of the nickname?

I'm dating myself on this one, but Pickles was the name of Buddy's wife on the old "Dick Van Dyke Show". It would be rather funny if this was the source because Morey Amsterdam had the quickest and wittiest mind. I doubt that even the most ardent rethuglican would say that about bush jr. :hurts:

Please enlighten me! :think: Thanks.

Mods, if I've incorrectly posted in the wrong forum and this is more for the Lounge, Please correct me :spank: and do what you must do!

3. Thanks.
I don't remember a first lady sooo lacking in style and elegance, not even her mother in law. Maybe she's just so tired after yanking the beer cans out of his hands.

4. Could be...
... it might be his favorite snack while he gets drunk and he needs some moniker to help him remember who she is.

6. What I want to know is,
is it really true that she never shows her arms? Does anyone have a picture of her with her arms bare?

I saw someone write this here and I don't know whether they were joking or not. But ever since when I see her, I look to see if she's wearing long sleeves. So far, I haven't seen her arms.

7. Well, I won't get very graphic
But I hear that years of rampant drug use and alocholism can render one quite impotent...

8. it's true
We've never seen her arms. Needle marks?

Her gowns are designed by Scaasi, who is the long-time designer for Mother Bush. That should explain a lot. Maybe even the tummy bows.

9. Memory check, folks
Remember how pissed off we all were when the Right Wingnuts wanted to make an issue out of Chelsea Clinton's appearance, or out of Hillary's hair?

Remember?

Apparently not.

Let's have a little more class than this.
