What would Mother say?

Jessica McBride "always get(s) really annoyed" about a lot of things, including:
when liberal women presume to speak for all "women" or "mothers" (for example, assuming that abortion is a "woman's right").
She had Sally Field in mind this time, but JMcB is always either getting really annoyed or choking on her coffee about something.

But while we're on the subject of who speaks for America's mothers, here is the commander in chief's take on it, via DailyKos:
George Bush held a pep-rally at the White House today and made what was perhaps the most idiotic remark in a long line of idiocies from his misbegotten presidency:

Gold Star Mothers, got you, okay, thank you -- Blue Star Mothers, Gold Star Mothers, all the mothers, yes. (Applause.) Every day is Mother's Day as far as your concerned, isn't it?
Yes, George, every day is a holiday when you have a child who is either fighting in a war or was killed in it.
We'd say that's far from his most idiotic remark, but it probably made ms. McBride "really annoyed," we expect.

  1. The way you get annoyed about Sally Field presuming to speak for all women is by presuming that Sally Field speaks for all liberal women.
