GETTING SICK
Getting Even

While perusing No More Mister Nice Blog, I was reminded that the late Ann Richards's keynote address to the 1988 Democratic National Convention -- or at least a certain part of it -- made Mrs. George H. W. (Barbara) Bush "physically ill," which is aged WASP-speak for vomiting.

A bit of an overreaction on her part, though the same might be said of me, as I had the exact same feeling last year when I learned this:

Former first lady Barbara Bush donated an undisclosed amount of money to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund with specific instructions that the money be spent with an educational software company owned by her son Neil.

So perhaps we're even.

Besides, it rhymes with "witch," doesn't it?
