Laura Bush Lies, Too.

About three months ago, First Lady Laura Bush, in a speech to the National Book Festival, read a poem which she said had been written by her husband. It turns out that she was lying, but God only knows why.

It was a truly terrible poem, so why attribute it to your husband, Laura? I can understand why your husband lied about his reasons for invading Iraq, lied about his being absent without leave from his unit during Vietnam, lied about his cocaine use, lied about the true nature of his tax cuts for the rich, lied about the air quality at Ground Zero, lied about "Clear Skies" and "Healthy Forests" ... but why would you lie about him writing poetry?

Laura, we know you're a liar, just like your husband. What I want to know is, did someone put you up to it?
