Out of Touch

Not the title I wanted to use, but I don't need big brother breathing down my neck.

Humanitarian that she is, the woman who spawned our President decided to make a donate to the Katrina relief effort, provided the money go to her son Neil's software company.

Now, right wing talking heads will point out that computer software is something that will greatly benefit school systems struggling to get back on their feet. And they're right. But should the former First Lady really be donating money to the relief effort that has such strict conditions placed on it? And even if she does think that computer software is the most important endeavor, aren't there software companies not run by family that she could have chosen? Of course. But just like a Bush, she chose family over country.

I guess we can all be thankful she didn't earmark her donation to Halliburton.

And of course, she is free to donate to whomever she wants, but this nepotistic move proves, once again, that she is completely out of touch with reality.

And it's par for the course, as she mothered a President who refused help in Katrina relief from several nations because they haven't blindly followed his foreign policy.

If anyone is willing to help me fundraise for a luxurious box at the Astrodome for Mrs. Bush, I'm all ears.
