Barbara Bush at UNICEF"s Snowflake Ball

Say What? Celebrate the Little Things


"This year's Snowflake Ball was the first year we've been able to celebrate the daily death rate of children dropping below 25,000."

— Barbara Bush told Vanity Fair Daily what she was thankful for this year at UNICEF's annual Snowflake Ball. We know she meant well, but "celebrate" and children's death rate don't really belong in the same sentence. Unless, of course, you're at the Snowflake Ball!

Geez, this wouldn't even have been here if her last name wasn't Bush. Get over it, Tres. Bush bashing is so last season.

I think what she is celebrating is great - the daily child death rate dropping below 25,000. She just could have worded it better although she got the gist across. Maybe the quote left out details of an explanation.Perhaps she'll carry on the legacy of bushisms....(and yes I do like her so I mean this in a humourous way.)

I don't know, I don't see it as that bad. It is a really serious thing to be down, and celebrating, so sugar coating it seems silly and strange in my opinion.

Must she be attacked for saying that? What she meant was really important! Let's celebrate the death rate dropping instead of making fun of Ms. Bush's way of talking.

But obviously she didn't mean to be insensitive at all.

That's one of those hit-yourself-in-the-forehead quotes.

Incidentally, I think she looks really pretty in the pic.
