I don't want to be harsh or superficial here, but I'm reasonably certain that there's more botulinum toxin in this face than there was in all of Iraq before the fall of Saddam.

And yeah, I know it was a regent of Pepperdine University who said this -- that's where Laura Bush gave the commencement address on Saturday -- but is she really "our nation's comforter in chief"? Do even people in red states think of her that way? She is unnervingly popular, according to public opinion polls, but does anyone in the country, even Bush end-timers, regard her as the person who soothes the nation's troubled soul in difficult times?
