When Bush made fun of a reporter's garb, one said "Your mother raised ...
... you better than that."

It came in quite clearly.

3. You got that right....
"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? "

4. Obviously that reporter does not know Bar. She has a mean streak also.
And like * she is not even clever about it. Remember her "rhymes with witch" statement about Kitty Dukakis?

8. Right you are. Yegads my memory is shot. Not only did I have the
target wrong but the word she used as well. But I think she still meant "bitch" not "witch".

7. "Mean streak"?
She's ugly to bone. Remember her "I can't bother my beautiful mind" crack when asked about the casualities in Iraq? The rotten apple didn't fall far from that shriveled tree.

5. It is a good sign that some are finally standing up to the bullying -
however too little and too late.

9. Bar: the source from whom all evil flows...
She didn't raise him right AT ALL.

16. Remember what Nixon said about her?
Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 11:58 AM by TomInTib
Along the lines of, 'You have to give her credit, that woman really knows how to hate".

17. No, I hadn't recalled that one. Although I certainly was around
and politically active in the 60s.

Thanks for refreshing my memory on that score. :)

13. Didn't Nixon say something like
"God, that woman, she really knows how to HATE"

Pretty bad when even Tricky Dick thinks you're evil. Of course, he may have simply been admiring her for her hatred skills.

14. So, what is the rest of the story? What did Bush say then? Or how did he
look? Did he in anyway acknowledge that he heard what was said.

I bet that poor reporter will be transfered to another beat - if not out right fired.

18. Something like, "I hear seersucker is coming back,"
implying that her outfit was out of style.

21. Mommy Dearest was always one Valium away from reality.
Bush was raised by a pack of wolves (no offense to real wolves) IMO.

22. I never cease to be amazed..
