Bush To-Do List: 1. Ruin The Country; 2. Buy New China
You have got to be kidding me. My Bush Countdown Clock is almost down to single digits, and now this?
The first lady was careful not to mention the price tag when she introduced the new presidential plates: one, a table set of formal china in white, green and gold; the other for the residence painted with magnolias in honor of the old trees outside the White House windows.
Laura Bush said she and her husband plan to fly straight to the Bush ranch Jan. 20 and will move to their new residence in Dallas "once the paint dries."
White House press secretary Dana Perino made little of the first lady's timing to introduce the new china, saying there's "no time but the present."
The White House worried that general wear and tear had taken a toll on its fragile China collections and Perino says the Bushes took some time to decide on a new design.
General wear and tear?
What have there been... 5 or 6 state dinners during the last 8 years?
And riddle me this: Who will want to eat food plated on top of a big old magnolia blossom?
Laura Bush: her taste is all in her mouth.
But you already knew that, didn't you?
