Laura Bush has some interesting things to say about her husband:

“Here’s our typical evening. By 9pm Mr Excitement here is asleep and I’m watching Desperate Housewives. Ladies and Gentlemen, I AM a Desperate Housewife.”

Um, doesn’t this man work? I always thought that presidents would stay up most of the night, reading research reports, writing policy. Oh, wait…. Man, he just phones it in, doesn’t he? Hey American workers, this guy does far less then you do! Why is he in an office of privilege and power?

“But I’m proud of George. He’s learnt a lot about ranching since that first year when he tried to milk the horse. What’s worse, it was a male horse.”

I don’t even want to know. Really, not.

“George’s answer to any problem at the ranch is to cut it down with a chainsaw. Which I think is why he and [vice-president Dick] Cheney and [Defence Secretary Donald] Rumsfeld get along so well.”
