Bush is Kewl!


She's not just a flunky, she's a groupie, too.

From The New York Times:

AUSTIN, Tex., Oct. 10 - "You are the best governor ever - deserving of great respect," Harriet E. Miers wrote to George W. Bush days after his 51st birthday in July 1997. She also found him "cool," said he and his wife, Laura, were "the greatest!" and told him: "Keep up the great work. Texas is blessed."

[...]

A few days later, Ms. Miers wrote to thank the Bushes, saying, "Texas has a very popular governor and first lady!" She recalled a little girl who collected Mr. Bush's autograph and said, "I was struck by the tremendous impact you have on the children whose lives you touch."

[...]

"Keep up all the great work," she wrote. "The state is in great hands. Thanks also for yours and your family's personal sacrifice."
Either Miers is an embarassingly adoring fan or a shrewd woman who knows how to ingratiate herself with a man who enjoys being surrounded by sycophants.

All of a sudden, Harriet Miers's blog doesn't seem so farfetched anymore.
