Mothers Saying the Dumbest Things

1) The mother of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev going all Cleopatra (Queen of D’Nile) on the interviewers, claiming her sons are innocent of the Marathon Bombing. Yes, she knows everything. She goes over to Dagestan while her son is in college back in the USA and she knows what’s going on in his life. Ya sure.

2) Barbara Bush when asked if Jeb should run for Pres. Although you need to give her credit for not wanting another Shrub in the White House, one of the things she says in her justification of Jeb not running is “…there are a lot of great families…” implying, there are other great families from which to cull the future president of our country.

A lot of great families? What about a lot of great PEOPLE?

This just smacks of the old money, old family mentality. None of that new money (Clintons) or new family (Obamas) riff raff. Keep the well-heeled and manor-borne in office. But Let’s give someone else a chance besides Jeb. There are plenty of good families. Old families. Yes. More old money in power. Gaah.

  1. I think you hit the nail on the head with the old family thing. I suppose she means old white families who have had money long before the 20th century. Or perhaps she means families who had money older than the civil war… yea that’s probably what she really means by ‘good families’…. good my ass when I have to use an entire roll of toilet paper to clean myself.

    It is strange how these mom’s are do living in denial of reality.

    Maybe she doesn’t want Jeb to run because all the rest of us who didn’t have pre civil war money are no longer voting for people like the Bush clan.

  2. Perhaps Babs confuses herself with QE2? I mean, if she thinks it’s a FAMILY who heads up the country? Have you ever seen them in the same room together? No, Andrew shall not be King…

  3. I think you are right – she does see herself as some sort of royalty… and with the same degree of self insightfulness as the mother of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev having insight into her children’s alleged innocence.

  4. I forgot… I’ve never seen them in the same room…. I imagine they are extremely dis-functional as a family.
