Will The Liberal Press Ever Get Over The Fact That Laura
"Ran A Stop Sign, Inadvertently Killing A Friend"?

..."This carefully managed image of Laura Bush begins with a core, undisputed narrative, related in nearly every media profile by the same set of family friends and White House insiders. The daughter of a homemaker and a homebuilder, Laura hails from "unpretentious folks" in Midland, Texas, where children ran in the street until twilight, when they returned home to unlocked doors. Laura's was a storybook upbringing marred only, as all have breathlessly reported, by an eerie brush with death not long after her seventeenth birthday. (She ran a stop sign, inadvertently killing a friend.) [more below] Not long after, Laura left Midland for Southern Methodist University, where she was part of the "cusp" generation whose rebellion went no further than smoking Winstons and wearing peasant blouses. She then spent ten years teaching, earning a graduate degree in library science, and ostensibly not caring if she married or not." --New Republic, 8/13/01

 Note: I wonder why they failed to mention the "friend" was her fiance?

Questions Still Surround Laura Bush's Midland Tragedy
 from The Dallas Morning Whore, May 4, 2000

"Report Finds Fatal Crash Attributable to Mrs. Bush"

"The wife of Gov. George W. Bush was responsible for a traffic accident that killed a high school classmate in
Midland 37 years ago, according to a newly released accident report. Investigators said a 1963 Chevrolet driven
by Mrs. Bush - then Laura Welch, a high school senior - ran a stop sign and struck a Chevrolet Corvair driven by
Michael Douglas. Copies of the accident report - parts of which are illegible - were released Wednesday by
Midland City Attorney Keith Stretcher after state Attorney General John Cornyn held that the information
was public....Mr. Stretcher, the Midland city attorney, initially declined to release any information about the
accident on the grounds that it involved minors and therefore was exempt from disclosure under the Texas
Public Information Act. He also contended that disclosing the information would violate the parties' privacy rights.
Police listed two violations as contributing to the accident, both by Mrs. Bush. One checked box read
"disregard stop sign or light," and the other was illegible....Both drivers were Robert E. Lee High School students.
Neither was drinking, and no citations were issued, according to the report." (more from DMN)

Note: I'm not eager to see Pickles in prison, but "no citation was issued?"
She ran a stop sign and caused the death of her fiance and no citation was issued?
If you back into a car doing 5 MPH in a parking lot, you get cited for it.
Perhaps the police looked into her soul and saw she was guilt free?

"Bush's Wife Still Haunted by Death Crash Nightmare"

Presently available on newsstands, this story reviews material found in the DMN story documented above and an
AP story on the same day, as well as a relevant interchange from a Barbara Wolters interview with Laura Bush
on 20/20 the next day. A partial copy of the original Midland police report is included, along with photographs
of the crash scene. Judy Dykes, a friend of Laura Bush who was in the passanger's seat at the time of the accident,
was unnamed in the DMN story, but told the DMN reporter, "[The story] is not worth digging into.It was an accident,
a horrible, horrible accident years ago, and it has no relevance." The GLOBE appears to believe relevance may possibly
be found in its reporting of comments made by two unnamed members of Texas' law enforcement community.
One wondered why no ticket was issued by the Midland police.
The other wondered why no grand jury was convened by the City or County of Midland. --Politex, 8/7/00

One damn sure does.

Almost all of this story came from Bushwatch.com

And we can't let this go without mentioning the certain media frenzy
if this had been Hillary who killed her first fiance.

Barbara Olson would have a best seller on it.
Ann Coulter would have a best seller on it.
Peggy Noonan would have a best seller on it.
Laura Ingraham would have a best seller on it.
Laura Schlessinger would have a best seller on it.
David Limbaugh would have a best seller on it.
Christopher Hitchens would have a best seller on it.
Dick Morris would have a best seller on it.
Bob Woodward would have a best seller on it.
Christopher Ruddy would have a best seller on it.
Ben Stein would have a best seller on it.
Gail Sheehy would have a best seller on it
Neal Boortz would have a best seller on it.
David P. Schippers would have a best seller on it.
David Maraniss would have a best seller on it.
Mike Barnacle would claim he was in the car with Hillary.
Joe Klein would write a best seller on it, but swear he didn't
Judas Stephanopolous Maximus would have a best seller on it.
Joe Eszterhas would fabricate quotes from Hillary's vagina.
Michael Isikoff would swear the conversation was "off the record"
but then turn around and print every word (plus some he made up.)
Kenneth Starr would write an impeachment referral over it.
Susan McDougal would still have to do time in prison,
and Julie Hiatt Steele would still lose her house.

The vulgar Pigboy would pound on her 15 hours a week until 2009.
O'Reilly would pound on Hillary for months and years.
Hannity would pound on Hillary for months and years.
(and Colmes would remain silent while he did...)
Paula Zahn would pound on Hillary for months and years.
Brit Hume would have weekly "Special reports" called "Accident? You Decide!"
Juan Willaims and Mara Liason would agree Hillary belongs in prison.

CNN would create a spin off network to cover it 24/7.
Tim the Whore would mention it every Sunday until he died.
Chris the Screamer would pound on Hillary for months and years,
but no guest would ever get to answer any questions about it.
Cokie Roberts would mention it every week, then giggle.
Henry Hyde would scream, "The flag is falling."

Richard Mellon Scaife would pay David Brock $80,000 to talk to the cops who were
paid $80,000 to say "We thought we smelled liquor, but everyone in Arkansas
knows there'd be hell to pay if we wrote this up as a drunk driving accident."
The American Spectator would then run a front page story on it, and somehow Paula Jones
would run into the spotlight screaming, "Hillary was trying to kill me - and missed," then the
whore mainstream media would've made Paula a star on this story instead of the other one.
Then every night, Larry King and his "panel of experts" would search for the connection
between Hillary's accident and Clinton's cock - as he always does.

...but since it was Bush's wife, Karl Rove gave orders not to bring it up.
