Senator Pickles?

The lovely folks over at Belo's Trailblazer blog have a bit of comedy up on the site...

CNN just ran a piece speculating that First Lady Laura Bush, fresh from forays into foreign affairs -- a Wall St. Journal op-ed denouncing the anti-democracy crackdown in Burma, a Middle East trip to promote breast cancer awareness and rebuild America’s image – might foreshadow an interest in elective office.

CNN noted that Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison plans to give up her seat by 2012. Texas Republican National Committeeman Bill Crocker was on camera saying that Mrs. Bush is so popular, she’d be a strong contender for the Senate if she wants it.

The CNN headline on the story: “Signs Laura Bush may run”

Rock! Running against her will be a blast! I can see the campaign slogan now... Laura Bush : The Bush who still drinks!

Yeah, even in Texas the last name Bush is going to be a non-starter for a long time.
