Laura Bush is pro-abortion, like Barbara, and Michelle.

I have no use for her either.

This cockroach has accomplished nothing in life. Getting to “hang out in the WH” was made possible by extreme stupidity. I’m no fan of Hollywood and it’s wierdos but at least they have a reason to be there.

This is why I am not much of a movie watcher!
How about those people in the back? HOW uninformed are they? SAD!

Ugh. Where was the barf alert? I'm going to be sick. Especially after I read that the Academy invited her because she was a "movie lover."
