Babs the Impaler

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Barbara Bush's death has prompted a fair amount of commentary, among which is tengrain's--quite possibly the least sugar-coated of them all. "I have nothing nice to say about the late first lady, Babs-the-Impaler," tengrain writes, "My polite version is that she was not a force for good:"

Besides giving birth to, and raising, a nest of cambions, crooks, and out-right thieves the likes of which the world has never before known (Hi Chimpy! Hi JEB!, Hi Doro, Hi Silverado, Hi Marv!), she was a special kind of monster herself.

As the Katrina disaster befell New Orleans, we are reminded, she has some charming sentiments to offer:

"Almost everyone I've talked to says, 'We're going to move to Houston.' What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality.

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this, this is working very well for them."

It's really an two-fer, spoken by an entitled racist ghoul: which is pretty scary is almost never remembered, because everyone focuses on the Marie Antoinette-like let-them-eat-cake-in-the-Astrodome surrounded by dead bodies and raw sewage.

As tengrain concludes:

There's a certain amount of rose-colored glasses we all are allowed to peer through, and nostalgia is a great blur-er (is too a word!), and certainly the Poppy Bush kinder-gentler era seems like a golden time compared to now (unless you were an Iraqi), but never forget that he (and she) were part of the Reagan VooDoo Economics, trickle-down, screw-the-poor, grasping gang of thieves that put us in our current tragedy. Yes, they were Never Trump, but that is only because they were Always Bush and wanted ¡JEB! to put the Bush Crime Family back in power.
