Lowering the Bar

Seems that Princess Sarah Palin is a little pissed off at that blue-blooded Barbara Bush. I think that Princess had better realize that she’s feuding with perhaps the grizzliest of mamas when she picks on Babs (or Bar, as Poppy calls her). Being blue-blooded has taught Babs to be as nasty as she wants to be while wearing a smile. Princess could learn a thing or two from her. Here’s a look back at Babs. George H. W. Poppy Bush and Babs had their hands full with Chimpy and Little Jebbie…

It’s no wonder, as the whole gang seems a bit spacy to me. Here are the Bushes with their friends, Condi Rice, Deadeye Dick Cheney, and Colin Powell. And we can’t forget Chimpy’s Valium-infused wife, Pickles!

You might have noticed that one of the family friends, Karl Rove, is missing.Β  There’s a good reason he’s not there that not too many people know about it…

It’s been a much slower pace now that no Bushes are holding political office. Babs spends most of her time at the country club. Here’s the family with another blue-blood, Cindy Lou McCain, and her hubby, Captain Underpants. That looks like Lindsey Graham in the back and Joe Lieberman (they allow Jews at the country club?) next to Poppy…

Of course, when Babs isn’t insulting poor people, she spends most of her time at home in Houston or visiting Chimpy, Pickles, Jenna, not-Jenna, and Jenna’s hubby, Henry Hager (who’s a real blue-blood), at their new digs in Dallas…

    Remember Celebrity Deathmatch on MTV in the 90s? Can we get Babs and the Princess on that? I’d pay to see that although I feel it would be no contest. Babs is absolutely viscous and would gut the Plastic Princess in no time.

    • not only would i pay to see it, i’d buy the mud or jello or whatever other medium they want to duke it out in. (i ended the sentence with 2 prepositions! that’s make me doubly grammatically incorrect!)

    karl as ben, classic. love the shoe and the calf flap. and jeb as the “beve” is very nice, too. first rate, nonnie.

    My God I nearly choked seeing what you did with The Graduate πŸ˜€

  4. If Sarah was teachable, she could learn a mean thing or two from Barbara Bush.

    The Lost in Space kills. Looks like psycho, republican Mardi Gras. πŸ˜†

    • you betcha! πŸ˜‰ babs is like those southern women who say the nastiest things about people but follow it up with ‘bless her heart’ and a smile. you don’t realize just how nasty they are until you think about it. babs looks like an innocent old grandma, but her heart is as black as princess’s. however, princess wears her scowl on the outside and is way too stupid to moderate her words.

    The half term governor is a “Dan Quayle” in heels. Since we already had an idiot “W” that caused our current economic debacle, America knows not to trust in fools who think they are brilliant. One of the reason for “W” failure was his drinking, Palin just has bad genes.

    • I play a computer game called “Civilization.” At the end of the game, the program compares your play to those of various leaders from history. If you completely screw things up, it tells you that “you have the leadership ability of Dan Quayle.” I’ll bet the next edition will say “you have the leadership abilities of Sarah Palin.”

      • πŸ˜† that’s hilarious! i’m surprised that it doesn’t say that β€œyou have the leadership ability of chimpy,” since a lot of younger people probably don’t even know who mr. potatoehead is.

    • hi montana, nice to see you again! πŸ™‚

      i think princess is even dumber than quayle (the father, not so sure about the son, but he might tie with princess in the stupidity dept).

  7. Babbs is a l\kick though… mouthing off- to a degree, that pretty Sarah Palin should stay in Alaska. then they say Jeb’s not running for president. What they refrain from saying out loud, is “his little brother George fucked things up too badly”.
    Now that would be speakin’ the truth!

    Do you suppose Mama Bear may be just slightly fearful that Sarah may become a step higher than she ever made??

    • hello jim nieman,

      welcome to the raisin! πŸ˜€

      if there’s one thing babs bush is not missing, it’s self-esteem. i don’t think she ever worries about anyone getting a step higher than she got, because she believes there’s nobody better than her. princess sarah is right about one thing–babs is a true blue-blood. i bet babs considers queen elizabeth’s brood to be white trash.

    Hi Nonnie!

    Glad I stopped by–enjoyed reading this post. Hopefully, Sarah Palin will soon recognize the difference between leadership and popularity. Appreciate you stopping by last week to share the true meaning of the holiday spirit with Meesh & I, and hope your Thanksgiving was a meaningful time spent surrounded by those you love and care about. Have a great week!

    • hello al,

      welcome to the raisin! πŸ˜€ so glad you stopped by!

      princess sarah sees the world the way she wants to see it, not as it is. she’s got some hard-core followers, but even they will fall away when the next big thang comes along. being able to lead is a quality that doesn’t leave you; popularity is fleeting. ask all those american idols and reality show “stars” whose names nobody remembers.

      stop by anytime, al!

  10. See, the older stuff still gets the laughs. Looks like the princess got on the wrong side of Huck with her smartass desert remarks. You may need to do a Smores ad soon and set her straight. Is it December yet!!
