Show Some Respect for your Mothers

When Laura Bush stole the show with her zany jokes at the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner last weekend, she probably didn’t expect the evangelistic Christian right to frown on her little attempt at harmless humor. There’s nothing like NOT pandering to your base. I enjoy a good sense of humor too, but somehow the recent deaths of 127 people in Iraqi violence just since the new regime was anointed seems to make hilarity over Laura’s husband, the leader of the free world, not doing his job well, bad timing. That’s as bad as my criticism gets. I can’t hold a candle to the reactions of several groups and clergy according to the Swift Report’s Russell D’Arby. Among the problems was a perception that Mrs. Bush was emasculating her husband verbally. They quote a section of Ephesians: “'Wives, submit yourselves unto your husbands, as unto the Lord.”

Well guess what, Coalition for Traditional Values: if “stay at home moms” got paid according to their work output, they would receive $131,471 annually, including overtime, according to an informal study done by a web site, So while your wives are submitting unto you, it might not hurt for you to kiss their feet.
