Laura Bush was giving out Decidress opinions last week; to Norah O’Donnell, the first lady ripped the media about coverage of Iraq. How pre-ISG….but almost unreported were the first lady’s snide remarks about First Rival Condi Rice, which I can no longer track back via link. But here’s the quote…
Mrs. Bush referenced Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and noted that while she would be a “really good candidate” [for president], Rice is not interested in the job.”Probably because she is single, her parents are no longer living, she’s an only child. You need a very supportive family and supportive friends to have this job,” the First Lady said.
If you haven’t lived in the South, you may not pick up on the slicing and dicing going on here. Trust me. This is ugly.
UPDATE: OH. MY. GOD. Keith Olbermann picked up this story and ran with it on Countdown. Oh. my. god. Roll the tape.
ignorant slut lazy incompetent ignoramus blogger over at Huffington Post stated that nobody but Keith Olbermann picked up on this story. Ha. Nobody but Over the Line, Smokey; dKos, and the raucous folks over at Democratic Underground.
