Laura Bush Calls Herself a Desperate Housewife

In 2005, Laura Bush crashed George Bush's speech, and everyone loved it. The former first lady just about stole the show when she stopped his "old joke" and took the reins herself. Among the standout lines were her talking about the president going to sleep by 9 p.m. while she stayed up watching Desperate Housewives, before calling herself one. She even joked about going to a strip club (yes, Chippendales) and how she had a meddling mother-in-law. It was one surprise routine that made it into the books.
