Darth Monkeybone, who has a very unstable name, sent me this article yesterday. after reading the following section, i know that Tuh-ray-zuh would make such a fabulous first lady. ::rolls eyes::
Q: You’d be different from Laura Bush?
A: Well, you know, I don’t know Laura Bush. But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good. But I don’t know that she’s ever had a real job â€” I mean, since she’s been grown up. So her experience and her validation comes from important things, but different things. And I’m older, and my validation of what I do and what I believe and my experience is a little bit bigger â€” because I’m older, and I’ve had different experiences. And it’s not a criticism of her. It’s just, you know, what life is about.
oh what an idiot.
librarian — fake job
teacher — fake job
MOTHER — fakest job in the world
and then there’s the apology from this illustrious woman.
I had forgotten that Mrs. Bush had worked as a school teacher and librarian, and there couldn’t be a more important job than teaching our children. As someone who has been both a full-time mom and full-time in work force, I know we all have valuable experiences that shape who we are. I appreciate and honor Mrs. Bush’s service to the country as first lady and am sincerely sorry I had not remembered her important work in the past.
so she finally respects teachers and librarians and continues to dis full-time moms. maybe it’s just me, a childless 28-year old who’s been only around other people’s children, but it seems to me that mothering is the hardest and most important job in the world.
except maybe “philanthropist”. whew! she’s such a hard worker, compared to those silly moms who don’t have real jobs.
