Laura Bush Loves The Gays (And That Not-Gay Elena Kagan Person)

Laura Bush, the radical former first lady who supports The Gay Marriage, isn’t done with her shock and awe tour of America. Yesterday she turned up on Fox News, still plugging her book, to reveal that her husband is ripe for a bit part in I Love You Man 2.

George W. has a “man cave,” says Laura. “We have the huge-screen TV. That was one of the first things we bought and put upstairs in George’s man cave, that we call it, the one big room that’s upstairs, and where his desk is and his computer. And that’s where he likes to watch the Texas Rangers every night.”

We’re going to hold of on making jokes about what some other men do in big rooms, with televisions and computers, cordoned off from the rest of the house, and substitute with a mention that Ms. Bush is on board with Elena Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination. (Cue to 11:25)

      I thought George W. Bush’s “man cave” is where Jeff Gannon inserts his manhood while Laura is off in New York shopping for clothes that make her look startlingly like her 9 mother-in-law?

      You’re right: we mustn’t complain and we mustn’t tease. This is relatively easy to take until he decides to rewrite history and do a similar high-profile rehabilitation of his record. Maybe she was sent out first to test the waters.

      For a more sobering read of the real Bush legacy check out last Friday’s William Rivers Pitt:

      @dvlaries: GWB could officiate a gay marriage himself and that would do little to rehab the unmitigated disaster that was his presidency.

      And I think Laura’s support of Kagan is more like a GIRRL POWER! sort of thing.

      She also kept beating around the bush (heh, heh) about gay marriage until he finally asks her if gay marriage is coming and she says yes. Then he asks her if she’s ok with that and she finally says “yes” (starting at the 14:03 mark & she finally gives her saintly blessing at the 14:30 mark. Hallelujah! Now my life is complete!!!)

      She’s also clearly against the Arizona hate law but won’t come out against it…Laura, dear, the teabaggers can’t hurt you. Speak your mind and stop being a mouse. I wanna see you at gay pride Dallas next year!!!

      So along with Bill Clinton and Cindy McCain, these people come out as supporting gay marriage after they are out of office or the influential sphere? I don’t know whether to feel happy or angry. It’s like they’re using us to sell more books or something.

      So in like 8 years, we’ll see Michelle Obama coming out in support of it right?

      I might just be less cynical but its called politics, you know its not nice to kill your husbands career with your political views especially when like in all the other interviews (this one did not got into it) she got to share the fact that her and Gorge W. don’t see eye to eye on gay marriage, women’s reproductive rights and such, so she is to an extent more liberal them him on social issues but she is also younger then him. How ever She also loves her husband and did not want to derail his career just to be a dick. Any way we all see how well a politically out spoken first lady worked out for the clinton white house oh wait they shoved the cat back in the bag for the second trim as damage control. No one wants their UNELECTED First Lady running around trying to do political junk. (other then the normal fluffy pet project)

      @james_in_cambridge: Have you read and/or studied the Arixona law you write of? I’m more liberal than conservative on social issues and have nothing against immigration but the law isn’t like many have stated. Bad intention may have played a part but the law itself really isn’t like people have stated. Thank you.

      @Paschal:

      “FOR ANY LAWFUL CONTACT MADE BY A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL OR AGENCY OF THIS STATE OR A COUNTY, CITY, TOWN OR OTHER POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THIS STATE WHERE REASONABLE SUSPICION EXISTS THAT THE PERSON IS AN ALIEN WHO IS UNLAWFULLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES…”

      What gives an officer “reasonable suspicion a person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States”?

      @delurker again: “What gives an officer “reasonable suspicion a person is an alien who is unlawfully present in the United States”?”

      One of two things:

      1) Brown Skin
      2) Spanish accent (if you’re white with an Irish accent though,
      don’t worry, that’s not at all suspicious.)

      @james_in_cambridge: Bingo. Those who say the law is not racist are looking at it through a lense of white privilege.

      A hispanic US citizen living in AZ, who can trace his or her ancestry back to the conquistadores may come under suspicion, but an illegal Irish immigrant from Boston visiting the Grand Canyon will not.
