Fuck Barbara Bush


Okay, it’s been awhile. I’ve been moving into a new place. I am still moving into a new place. I am sick of moving into a new place. I don’t even have that much stuff.

Anyways, I guess I should try to ease back into blogging with something nice and not bitter. So here goes.

Barbara Bush is an evil bitch.

"Barbara Bush?" you say. "No way, man, she was downright grandmotherly."

Yeah way. Her. B - I - T - C - H.

Examples? You want examples? You got examples.

Regarding her son’s composure before the war in Iraq:
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? And watch him suffer.
Her reaction to Katrina victims who were placed in shelters in Houston?
Almost everyone I’ve talked to says, ‘We’re going to move to Houston.’ What I’m hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality.
And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this, this is working very well for them.
Maybe to counter this perceived arrogance and borderline racism, Barbara could give some money to help Katrina victims. That would be nice, selfless, and begin to repair her crumbling image.

So she did.

Sorta kinda.
Former first lady Barbara Bush gave relief money to a hurricane relief fund on the condition that it be spent to buy educational software from her son Neil’s company…

Since Barbara Bush’s gift, the Ignite Learning program has been given to eight public schools with high numbers of Hurricane Katrina evacuees, the Houston Chronicle reported…

“Mrs. Bush wanted to do something specifically for education and specifically for the thousands of students flooding into the Houston schools,” the former President Bush’s chief of staff Jean Becker said Thursday.

Barbara Bush chose to promote Ignite because she supports her son and has genuine enthusiasm for his company’s program, Becker said.

Two years ago, the Houston school district board wrestled with conflict of interest concerns over the Ignite program. Neil Bush had helped raise $115,000 for the district’s philanthropic fund from donors who insisted the money be spent on his company’s software.

The district accepted the donations and used them to pay half the costs of new Ignite software, about $10,000 per school.

This is ridiculous on many levels. You have homeless families, families who have nothing, and you demand your money goes to buy…..software? From your prostitute-loving son? Not to pay rent for apartments, not money going to a food bank, not to rebuild levees, but to your son’s company? Does she expect to be praised for this? You’re his mom. If the program is so damn important to the children, why couldn’t you convince your son to donate it? And who gets to choose exactly where their donations go anyways? What self serving bitch.

I will let Keith Olbermann sum it up:
Houston Chronicle reporting today, and her chief-of-staff confirming, that Mrs. Bush made a generous donation to the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund, co-chaired by her husband, the former President, and former President Clinton. But there was a catch. The money she donated had to be spent, was earmarked for, was intended only for use for buying computer software programs for schools in Houston, computer software programs for schools in Houston that were sold by her son Neil. You’d think if a woman has reached her 80th birthday she’d understand that if you make a donation to charity, then make the charity give the donation to your son, it’s not a damned donation anymore! Barbara Bush, today’s ‘Worst Person in the World’!”
Barbara Bush is an uncaring bitch. A bitch who’s dangerously close to crossing the c*** line.
