Did anyone else notice Laura Bush on CNN today at the school in Mississippi? She didn't get the name of the hurricane right - she called it - Karina! Way to be with the little people Laura! -Ann

Our medical consultant tells us that inbreeding, combined with softening brain tissue resulting from never having held a job, can cause slurring of words, or, in this case, dropping of "T's." Lady Bush has since apologized for this gaffe, saying that "Karina was the name of a little poor girl that used to help around our stables until I had her fired and chased with pointy sticks for my own amusement. I later named an Arabian horse after her and had it beaten to death. I miss her so, and when I think of all the poor people in New Orleans who could be serving me gumbo or, like, letting me throw shoes at them, or whatever, she is in my thoughts. Hoo wee, I loves the gumbo." It takes a big woman to admit she's wrong, Ann. Speaking of big women, Barbara Bush has stood behind her daughter-in-law, saying, "Yes, gumbo is delicious." -homies
