First Lady Laura Bush, sitting down for an interview this week with MSNBC’s Norah O’Donnell, flexed her muscles and blasted the media for her husband’s abysmal approval ratings on Iraq, claiming that they fail to report any “good news” out of “Baghtopia.”
“For example,” said Mrs. Bush, “there’s a new school being built every 15 seconds, immediately after the old one gets blown to smithereens.”
The former elementary school teacher and librarian also emphasized that due to the high student mortality rate and flight of the middle class, Baghdad has made dramatic strides in reducing class size.
“Iraqi students also spend more hours studying than their American counterparts,” Mrs. Bush hastened to add, “since they go out and play only at risk to their very lives.”
“Indeed, the rise in literacy has been nothing short of miraculous,” the Lady in Red noted, “since 89% of the population can now spell DEATH TO AMERICA.”
“Besides, sectarian violence builds a strong sense of religious community,” the First Lady maintained.
Mrs. Bush also pointed out that declining oil production in Iraq helps fight global warming, and the nightly curfews keep Iraqi teenagers away from the dangers of alcohol.
Finally, the First Lady blamed the media not only for the electorate’s dismal view of Iraq, but for its overall disgust with the President: “If they didn’t insist on covering his every public statment, maybe he wouldn’t seem like such an idiot.”
