The Queen Mum speaks

Is Barbara Bush on crack?
Maybe I'm the last to see this, but I saw this item yesterday where Babs comments on the poor bastards who were stuck at the Superdome and so on.
"And so many of the people in the arena here, you
know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."
I hate seeing her like this. I used to respect her as a tough old broad, even as I disliked her husband, George Sr. Perhaps she is showing early signs of the onset of Alzheimers.
Or perhaps she's just a rich old white lady who's lived a life of priviledge, spawned a generation of The Powerful, and is just tired of playing the political game for the "underclasses".
You decide.
