Tarnishing the First Lady's reputation

When Laura Bush made the crack about watching Desperate Housewives at the White House Corrrespondents' Association annual dinner the other night, it got a big laugh. "I am a desperate housewife," she deadpanned.

Joke-writer Landon Parvin must have forgotten about the fake-morality-peddling hypocrites who played a big role in putting Bush's husband into office: They have called for a boycott of Desperate Housewives. In an interview, however, Parvin mentioned that Laura Bush had never actually seen the show. That would seem like damage control, except that he hinted she might watch it on DVD.

When Laura Bush says something to offend fundamentalists, you have a really good plot.
