Briefing Book! Bush, Sr. Jokes About Ugly Woman

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, everyone lighten up. THE INCIDENT NEVER HAPPENED--IT WAS A JOKE!!! First heard this Friday on Dennis Miller's radio program. We ALL know that Dennis is conservative, so he would be on Bush's side. Well, he LOVED the joke, but then he and his team checked into it, and IT NEVER HAPPENED! He heard a joke about an ugly woman, and he repeated it. Did anyone notice that he had to READ it in the video??? This isn't real, it didn't happen, and I think it is being taken WAY TOO SERIOUS. Please, it was funny just like it was funny to see Bob Dole doing ED commercials. Do you think all the men with ED who saw that didn't laugh at it themselves, or did they say, "Gosh, having Bob Dole do a commercial about my problem is embarrassing. I should sue." No, I think most of them looked at the humor of the situation and completely separated it from the seriousness of the issue.

Just as classy as Obama telling congressional repubs "I won, I'll trump you on that."

Those GOP men are just a riot when it comes to chick bashing! "on MSNBC’s Hardball, Salon editor-in-chief Joan Walsh and former Republican House majority leader Dick Armey engaged in a heated exchange on Rush Limbaugh and his recent controversial comments. Walsh repeatedly condemned Limbaugh’s remarks, saying that conservatives should stand up to the hate radio host. Toward the end, the conversation turned sexist when Armey said he was glad he wasn’t married to Walsh: ARMEY: I’m so damn glad that you can never be my wife because I surely wouldn’t have to listen to that prattle from you every day. WALSH: Boy, that makes two of us sir. That was really an outstanding comment."

Bush Sr. is the classy guy who told a group of protesting POW families to 'shut up and sit down' during his first administration.

"I always thought Bush Sr. was a bit more savvy then to say something like that in public." Why is that? He doesn't have anything to lose now. We can't go back and impeach him for anything. He's adored worlwide for his work with Clinton, which isn't going to change because he's working with Clinton. To me, the joke seemed like a set-up for Clinton's speach. It allowed Clinton to make a joke about sex without it seeming like "Oh great, Billy-boy is talking about sex again."

'but just goes to show you that 2 people who have 2 different views of a man will perceive things very differently. ' How do you know my views of GHWB are different than yours? And I agree with pop, some people are just physcially ugly. And yes, with Clinton it would be totally loaded if he made that joke.

"The joke was hilarious, but what is even more funny is the assumption that all feminists are ugly. That's not what he said. He said this one specifically was ugly." Even of I agreed with that, and lets just say I do, the fact that he chose to make a joke out of a woman who was protesting something extremely important to herself and millions of other women doesn't reflect well on his knowledge on what is appropriate.

The Bushes sure know how to keep it classy. I always thought Bush Sr. was a bit more savvy then to say something like that in public.

I don't have anything against Bush Sr. but it seems clear to me he meant physically ugly...and it was funny and Clinton being baffled as to why he can't get away with a joke is even more funny!

:rotfl: The joke was hilarious, but what is even more funny is the assumption that all feminists are ugly. That's not what he said. He said this one specifically was ugly.

If Clinton had made the joke it would have been a bit more loaded. HW Bush never had much of a rep as far as I can remember.

Who cares if he called her physically ugly? Are we supposed to pretend no one is ugly? I thought it was hilarious. Clinton's follow up was great too.

"He definitely meant ugly physically and not attitude-wise" I definitely didn't take that from what he said. but just goes to show you that 2 people who have 2 different views of a man will perceive things very differently.

He definitely meant ugly physically and not attitude-wise. But I still think he was just trying to be funny. If Clinton said that he would be jumped all over, I agree with that just because of his history with women.

mm no I still think its funny. It was a joke. Clinton was pretty funny too.
StolzeMama StolzeMama 8 years
And Clinton can say that joke too. I would still laugh.

I thought it was funny, and I didn't take it as ugly looks, I took it as ugly personality. To rush a car with an angry look, makes you look ugly> i also thought Clinton was funny

It's not funny when you think this man was president to ugly feminists as well as pretty submissives.
