Of Eleanor Roosevelt and "That Woman"

Today remains Thursday, 11 October 2007.

Blogger seems confused, having twice refused to accept my comments in the usual way, so I reply here to a comment on my column concerning Eleanor Roosevelt.

HH is not "picking on" Ms. Jenna Bush. The latter chose to become a public political figure when she campaigned for her father, a mass murderer conducting a criminal war of aggression and assassin of the Constitution.

As an ethical standard, "people have the right to choose how they live" is woefully inadequate. I suggest an amendment such as "so long as they don't harm others in doing so". It is the responsibility of all to judge when others are harming, and do that within our power to stop them.

Perhaps Ms. Jenna wrote the answer, perhaps she wrote the book. With such people, one can never be sure. (Jack Kennedy didn't write Profiles in Courage; W. Bush doesn't write the bulk of his speeches.) Ms. Jenna puts me in mind of what Fitzgerald wrote in The Great Gatsby: "They were careless people, Tom and Daisy --- they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made ... "

As to the lamentable Ms. Spears: child abusers were often abused themselves; she is best left to the therapeutic professions.

If the recently engaged Ms. Jenna has children, one can only beg that she will have by then repented of the vile values of her parents and paternal grandparents, and so spare the next generation.

Goof of the Day: "That woman" or "that woman in The White House" is how reactionaries, back in the day, spoke of Eleanor Roosevelt, of whom they dared not speak her name.

And you knew the lagniappe was coming:

I would urge the maker of this otherwise fine video to remove the Noelle Bush reference. No child of Jeb or George should be ridiculed for escaping into use of heroin.
