The Bush Girls

We had heard Ann Gerhart's bushgirls


Laura Bush book was going to tend toward the sucky end of the blow- vs. hatchet-job scale (what can you expect from something titled "The Perfect Wife"?), but we're still disappointed with the lack of dirt in the Style section's lengthy excerpt about the Bush girls. About the worst that can be said of them is that they slouch. Oh, and they like to party. But how hard? There's nothing in here you haven't heard before. (The fake ID, elluding the Secret Service to go drinking, etc.) The juiciest revelation in the piece has nothing to do with Bush twins directly -- it is the promise of juice to come. Apparently, Jenna and Barbara treat the Secret Service like shit, or, more precisely:

The twins. . . decided that their agents were their enemies -- and their chauffeurs, bellhops and valets.

When comes to dirt, there's nothing more fertile than an ill-treated employee. (Ask David Brock!) Agents, start your dialing now!

What did we say this morning? Something about how "They want a war with Iran," and "Please do not listen to news reports about Trump telling his people to cool their jets with the Iran talk, because they want a war with Iran, and all they are looking for is their trigger"?

News came out early this morning that Iran shot down a US drone in the Strait of Hormuz, outside Iranian waters. Let's see what our president and his war-bonering GOP shitmouths in Congress have had to say about that:

Great. Just great. So what's happening now?

Awesome. Just splendid. Trump is having a cuddle party today with John Bolton (who's had a hard-on to bomb Iran since the Bush administration); Mike Pompeo (who's been making the rounds lying and saying Iran and al Qaeda are best friends, thus implying that it's very legal and very cool for Trump to strike Iran without congressional authorization, based on the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) Congress voted for five days after 9/11); and Patrick Shanahan, the outgoing acting Defense secretary, who will make way for another acting Defense secretary, because who needs real Defense secretaries? (The new guy, Mark Esper, is part of the meeting too.) And as Senator Schatz points out above, Trump is emotionally unstable and doesn't know dick about foreign policy, so it's just great that he's having an emergency meeting with these unhinged hawks about this right now.

Tell us what this all means, unhinged hawk Lindsey Graham!
