It's about 9:15 PM, and I suppose that you and Bushie have since long gone to bed. (I hope you had time to read My Pet Goat to him before your heads hit the pillow).
You don't know me. But I wanted to write you anyway. Last week, you seemed distressed. You said you found it "disgusting" that anyone would criticize your husband's response to the worse natural disaster on U.S. soil. Particularly, you seemed outraged that anyone would say that race played a factor in the government's slow response.
Well Laura, you seem to be the kind of person who likes to listen. So I'll tell you: I've been disgusted too! (Imagine that)!
I've been disgusted to see the downright racist, insensitive comments that have come from your mother-in-law, Rush Limbaugh, Michael Brown, Richard Baker, and the list goes on!
And I was really disgusted yesterday, after learning that Dan Bartlett had to make your beloved Bushie a DVD to show him the reality of what was going on in New Orleans. And I was really disgusted when I learned that your husband went right to bed after receiving a call from Governor Blanco during which she told him "We need your help. We need everything you've got."
So I thought that since we were both really disgusted, we could commiserate together. One suggestion though Laura. Instead of reading My Pet Goat to Bushie at night, try reading something of substinence. Like maybe the newspaper (gasp!!). Or try watching the news! Most of the time, if they really get it right, they're just full of information!
P.S.- One other note Laura: maybe next time you ought to learn the name of the hurricane before you actually speak. And just FYI: the name of the Hurricane that struck the Gulf Coast region was not "Corrina." It was "Katrina." Just thought you should know in time for your next Bush apologist speech.
