Liberals attacking Laura?
Mark Kleiman writes:
I have to agree with Eugene Volokh; I'm not sure I see why my liberal friends are making such a fuss about Laura Bush's stand-up comedy routine.
Which liberal friends? The liberals I know have been laughing at the sputtering conservative commentariat. The only thing they hate more than sex is seeing a woman upstage her husband.
Heck, if it pisses off W., it's all good:
"A couple of funny lines one evening and she gets carried away," Bush shot back. "Laura Leno Bush!' he exclaimed, likening her to late-night comedian Jay Leno of the "Tonight" show.
It's interesting to speculate about the strategic rationale for giving Laura that particular script.
