The other first lady

Barbara Bush, wife of the first President Bush, will be coming to Vermont on Sept. 6 to campaign for Republican congressional candidate Martha Rainville. This will be the second Mrs. Bush to travel to Vermont on Rainville's behalf. Current first lady Laura Bush came to a fund-raiser at the Inn at Essex in May.

Word of the new visit started seeping out last night after Rainville campaign aide Judy Shailor sent out an e-mail to supporters.

Details of time and place are still being worked out.

Comments:
Remember what Mrs. Bush said about the Katrina refugees following hurricane Katrina:

"What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. (Said with concern.) Everybody is so overwhelmed by all the hospitality. And so many of the peoples in the arena here, you know, they're underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."

Not the sort of leadership that Vermont needs.
 
And, in addition to the Katrina comment, will anybody bother to care about the donation she made to Katrina victims that had to be spent on her son's educational software?

Barb's been on a roll...
 
She's an idiot troll

We should ban Bushes from coming to VT
 
Not too many conservatives are excited about her visit, either (unless you count the power-hungry sell-outs and the GOP Establishment). Barbara should stick to knitting or playing bridge or giving money to pro-choice GOP PACs.
