Now I've Heard Everything: French, American Liberals Distressed by Laura Bush's "Risque" Jokes

Ohmygoodnessgracious, she mentioned Chippendales!

"Laura Bush cracks risque jokes at the White House Correspondents' dinner," sniffed Agence France-Presse.

CNN reporter Elaine Quijano, who attended the dinner, also apparently had her sensibilities scarred by some of the first lady's quips.

"In some respects, I think for some folks it was a little shocking because she kind of crossed the line a little bit in some people's minds," she said.

"It was very risque," the Nation's David Korn said yesterday on Fox News. "I was wondering what the social conservatives and James Dobson had to say about all these jokes that were laced with sexual innuendo. Not a very family-values-type speech. I'm not sure I want to explain a lot of those jokes to my 4-year-old."

Awww, poor David and his virgin ears. He doesn't want to explain Chippendales to his 4-year-old? Really? Is this a major concern? Do 4-year-olds typically watch C-SPAN broadcasts of Correspendents' Dinners in wide-eyed wonderment?

Remember, these are the same assholes who asked "What's all the fuss about?" when Janet Jackson popped out her mommysac during the Superbowl, a show children really are watching.

Check out the very-yellow-journalism slant of that story, by the way. "Sniffed," "sensitivities scarred," etc. The Washington Times, of course.

That may be bias, but it's my kind of bias.

Hee, hee. David Korn worrying about explaining to his daughter what "Desperate Housewives" is all about.

I have a feeling there's a couple of more sensitive topics, perhaps a bit closer to home, he's going to have to explain to that daughter one day. "See, Angel, in college, we called it 'experimentation'... and after college, we just started calling it 'Thursday night.'"

Fucking partisan-hack jackass.
