"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." - Laura BushYep, I guess she did. Since the comment was made at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner you'd think an enterprising reporter would followup by asking if Preznit Chimpy McFlightsuit enjoyed it...or at least if the horse did.
Of course the statement was said in jest, but as the Honsberger is a Liar blog points out:
While the First Lady was still on the topic of their 'ranch' she also said the following:
Way to go Laura! If Hillary Clinton had said the same thing 7 years ago, the right-wing guardians of our nation's fragile moral fiber would be asking with much hand-wringing and teeth-gnashing, "How do we explain this to the children?"
"George didn't know much about ranches when we bought the place. Andover and Yale don't have a real strong ranching program."There may be more truth in that statement than anything that's come out of this White House in the past four years.
