Former First Lady Laura Bush appears to have lost her @#$%# mind.
The website,irishcentral.com is reporting that Mrs. Bush opposes the new Arizona immigration law because her Irish immigrant ancestors faced discrimination. No doubt immigrants -past and present- have encountered prejudice, but I'm assuming her ancestors entered the country legally. Like far too many people, she confuses legal immigration with illegal entry into the country.
Another example of Mrs.Bush early senility is her support of Elena Kagan as Supreme Court Justice. Does she support Kagan because of Kagan's vast judicial experience? Of course not. Laura Bush wants to see Kagan on the court because she's a woman.
"I think it's great," she said, "I'm really glad that there will be three - if she's confirmed. I like to have women on the Supreme Court."
Qualifications be damned......it's identity politics at it's finest.
Finally, Mrs. Bush told Larry King that she supports legalizing gay marriage as well as keeping abortion legal.
Are there any other surprises in the making? I wouldn't be surprised to hear soon that the former First Lady is a Muslim. Stranger things have happened.
