Q&A Friday: The Laura Bush Flap

Question: “What do you think of the Laura Bush flap?” — HerrKant

Answer: Personally, I didn’t have any problem with her stand-up routine. While I can understand some people thinking that a few of the jokes were beneath the dignity of the first lady, the whole performance, even the “milking the male horse gag” which some people are complaining about, was pretty tame:

“I saw my in-laws down at the ranch over Easter. We like it down there. George didn’t know much about ranches when we bought the place. Andover and Yale don’t have a real strong ranching program. But I’m proud of George. He’s learned a lot about ranching since that first year when he tried to milk the horse. What’s worse, it was a male horse.”

In any case, this is just a tempest in a teapot. No big deal either way…
