Laura Bush - again

Oh my goodness! What a flap about nothing. Can I just say in defense of evangelical Christian conservatives we are not all humorless Bible thumpers? Michelle Malkin is a lovely woman, but she is playing into the stereotype of humorless conservative. This reminds me of a scene in Witness the Harrison Ford flick. Hiding out with Quakers (or is it Mennonites?), John Book (Ford) is experiencing culture shock. His references and jokes fall flat and is offending his religious hosts with his behavior, nothing extreme but the distaste is palpable. The grandfather asks Book how he did milking the cow and Book mumbles some reply.

"Never had your hand on a teat before?" asks the patriarch.

"Not one that big." replies Book. The elder roars with laughter.
