Think George is Out of Touch? Listen to Laura

The First Idiot’s First Idiot is touring West Africa with the President’s nanny, Condoleezza Rice who masquerades as the US Secretary of State. This morning they attended the inauguration of president Ellen Johnson-Sireaf, Liberia’s first female elected head of state. Before going to Liberia, Laura Bush talked to reporters in Ghana. One reporter said critics of President Bush’s AIDS program in Africa felt it relied too heavily on abstinence rather than the use of condoms. Laura Bush answered by saying, "I'm always a little bit irritated when I hear the criticism of abstinence, because abstinence is absolutely 100 percent effective in eradicating a sexually transmitted disease.” She went on to say that one in three people had a sexually transmitted deadly disease in Africa and “girls feel obligated to comply with the wishes of men”, therefore, they need to know that abstinence is a choice. Dear Mrs. Ninny, wife of the worst President in US history: In a part of the world where one in three people have a sexually transmitted deadly disease and where girls feel obligated to comply with the wishes of men, where female genital mutilation is still practiced, where wife burning, dowry-related violence, rape, incest, wife battering, killing female infants, early marriage, teenage pregnancy, summary execution of women and prostitution are still taking place and where the incidents of rape have escalated astoundingly during the last two years since the civil war in Liberia ended, women DON’T HAVE THE LUXURY OF SAYING, “NO, I’D RATHER NOT.” What a moron. Just before landing in Ghana Laura Bush said that the US is right to eavesdrop on Americans, adding "I think the American people expect the United States government and the president to do what they can to make sure there's not an attack by foreign terrorists.” She obviously knows as much about the people in the US as she does about women in West Africa. Oh…and wasn’t it cute of her, being in Africa to tout nominally black Condi Rice as a future President of the US? And did she know she sounded about as sincere as Pat Robertson praying for Sharon’s health? What a total and complete moron.

Maybe I would have the nerve to do it, if given a chance, but somebody should ask Laura Bush publicly how she feels about her husband sleeping with male hookers.
