Laura Bush and her "suffering"

By now, surely, it has come to your attention that Laura Bush said in an interview that nobody suffers more than the President and she. You can read about it in an article entitled "Laura Bush: 'No One Suffers More' ". What I want to show you is a comment by someone named Lani in reference to that article. Take a look:

Memo to Laura Bush:

"No One Suffers More"

Oh, really.

Does your 'house' have power 24/7? clean water? food? heat? air conditioning? effective sewage removal? Do you have access to basic health care? Oh, really?

Has your 'house' been bombed? Have Marines broken down your doors, repeatedly, and held you and your entire family at gun point while they destroyed and looted most of your meagre belongings before maybe deciding to rape your teenage daughter? No? Oh really?

Have you or your loved ones spent time in Abu Ghraib? No?

How about Gitmo? No?

Has your country's entire civilian infrastructure been destroyed?

Have your children come back from Iraq in body bags?

Do your wounded relatives suffer in inadequate VA hospitals or are they deprived of the medical benefits they were promised when they joined up? No? I didn't think so.

How many of your relatives are suffering with the after effects of exposure to Depleted Uranium? None? Oh!

What about wives whose husband's irradiated ejaculate BURNS THEM? Any of your loved ones dealing with that horror? No? Oh!

And while we're on the subject, how many of your relatives have given birth to babies with severe birth defects that are similar to the birth defects that have been showing up in Iraqi newborns for over a decade? None? Oh!


You don't know the meaning of the word.

You and your war criminal husband just know how to make others suffer and suffer and suffer.

You both make me ashamed to be considered as a member of the same species. You may be human but you are NOT humane and your actions defile the Christianity you claim to follow.

And I also like this observation toward the end of the article:

[I]f our First Lady were sincere about her suffering, she would have to grab George and sit down with him to get honest and real ... about the War on Iraq and about the trusted men who have led him astray in making the greatest military blunder in U.S. history.

Laura would have to explain to George how his own chosen staff has led him astray with lies and fabrications in the interest of an imperial neoconservatism. She would have to explain to George that preemptive attacks are, by definition, immoral. She would have to explain to George that there were no WMDs in Iraq, no connections to bin Laden and Al Qaida, and no relevance to the war on terrorism.

Laura would have to explain to George how Dick and Karl have corrupted his administration, lost Congress to the Democratic party, discredited the Republican party, blackened America's name in the world, and now threatens to leave him with a legacy of overseeing the most notably incompetent and corrupt administration in U.S. history.

But she will not do these things. It is not for nothing that she is called a "Stepford wife" so much on the internet.
