RNC Convention

Laura Bush came out to intro her husband's 8 minute satellite feed speech (boy, the Republicans are proud of that guy, eh?) wearing Nancy Reagan red. Really, that reference cannot be denied. I've never seen Laura wearing a full red ensemble, but Nancy frequently did at various R functions.

Also, "The lady doth protest too much, methinks." No, not Laura, just Rs in general trying desperately to spin Sarah Palin into a reasonable VP pick, protesting pretty much ANY criticism of her and tossing out every possible justification of her, hoping it will stick.

Laura just claimed that "President Bush has kept the American people safe." Well, I didn't feel so safe when I was there at his behest, and I'm an American person. Also, to give him credit for preventing another attack requires that we also credit every president under whose watch we did not suffer a terrorist attack. and, since apparently he's directly responsible for a President's actions as related to terrorist activity, he also has to take responsibility for the terrorist attack on 9/11.
