I Said It, but I Didn't Want to Believe It...

After watching the Washington Correspondence Dinner the other night --and laughing out loud at Laura Bush's comedy...I told The Man that the evangelicals would be chomping at the bit to scold her for implying that she watches that secular show 'Desperate Housewives' and telling the crowd that Condi, Lynne Cheney, Karen Hughes and her went to a Chippendales show (and that Lynne Cheney's secret service name is now "dollar bill").

It is indeed happening. Instapundit reports that Bill Bennet was kvetching about the monologue this morning on his radio show. BUT I thought that far-right groups would be uptight about the content of the speech and not the just fact that she spoke at the dinner. Apparently, even though the entire purpose of this dinner is for politicians to lampoon themselves and the President, it was against Biblical teachings for the First Lady to take part because this was not obeying the command to respect one's husband. I don't remember the commandment that orders Christians to be humorless pompous windbags, but hey, maybe I wasn't paying attention close enough in Sunday school...

Hat tip to Bill at INDC Journal for having the proof posted for what I feared would happen... If things like this keep happening, the GOP should worry about a good libertarian candidate (especially if they are pro-life!) *sigh*
