Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Open mouth, insert foot AGAIN!

Poor old Teresa. She just can't seem to figure out when it is a good time to keep her mouth shut. She went off blathering about how she would be a better first lady than Laura Bush and then totally stuck her foot in her mouth.

My favorite quote from the faux pas (to quote a little of her hubby's French) from the interview published Wednesday in USA TODAY regarding if she would be different from Laura Bush as a first lady:

"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," Heinz Kerry said. "But I don't know that she's ever had a real job — I mean, since she's been grown up. So her experience and her validation comes from important things, but different things."

Those 10 years or so as a librarian and teacher are no big deal. Not to mention being a full-time mom is TO ME a REAL job. Hello. I work harder now that I stay at home than I EVER did as a reporter or PIO. Absolutely. Before I worked maybe eight to 10 hours a day. Now, I'm on the job 24/7.

I'll give Teresa credit, she did apologize for "forgetting" about Mrs. Bush's job experience, but she really needs to learn when to just give it a rest and be gracious for a moment. I know, that is asking too much of her.

    For once, I agree with you. Laura Bush is universally well-liked and you only make yourself look bad by saying ANYTHING nasty about her.

    The Kerry camp needs to get a PR person for Teresa Heinz Kerry. Being a sister in arms to her (loud-mouthed, say what I think BEFORE I think), I would HATE having a handler at my elbow all the time, telling me what to say and what not to say. Unfortunately, the wives of presidential candidates influence voters just as much, if not more than, the candidates' views and records. Someone is going to have to suck it up and tell her to watch what she says.

    I think they already tried that. She shot them down fast.
