sleep with The Man for fifty years, you become The Man

Holy shit. I remember Barbara Bush being a benign white-haired lady who cared about reading, not a decrepit incarnation of pure racist, elitist, cruelly chuckling evil. Link from Sam Means.

Barbara Bush on the Katrina survivors who were transported 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 (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."
- as quoted in Editor and Publisher

Al Franken had some things to say on that very subject in his 2003 book Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them. I think you can view the relevant passages here.

While Franken may not be the most evenhanded and unbiased of sources, I can't say I'm too surprised by this take on Barbara Bush.
