Girlfriend, You Knocked Me Out!

I thought Laura Bush was excellent tonight. She delivered a great speech, hitting just the right note, with her remarkable dignity and integrity which gives her an awesome quiet power.

I suspect she touched a nerve in many people, but especially in mothers. She dared to say our children will be safe again and her husband will make that happen.

And can I mention that I really don't like her one little bit ... politically that is. But, may I also mention I have enormous respect for her. Her gracefulness reminds me of what Republicans used to be -- trustworthy, generous, kind, magnanimous, brave -- and I hope for all our sakes, they might become again.
