“Everyone Else Has Cake to Eat”

Did Laura Bush really say, with a straight face, that “no one suffers more than their president and I do” when it comes to Iraq? Because I’m pretty sure that there are thousands, nay millions of people, Iraqi and American, who suffer a whole heckuvalot more than they do. I really hope that this is her Marie Antoinette moment; when I inform people that she once killed a man* they usually don’t believe me, but they might after this.
P.S. Wow. I looked up a news article about the car accident in which Laura Bush killed someone, and it turns out she said basically the same thing about that accident that she did today about Iraq: “I know this as an adult, and even more as a parent, it was crushing … for the family involved and for me as well.” Emphasis mine. Sympathy for the perpetrator runs real deep in her, doesn’t it?

*To be fair, it was vehicular manslaughter, not murder, which makes it slightly less awful.
