A Celebration of Mediocrity

In the White House Briefing by Dan Froomkin in the WaPo, there is a section in which Laura Bush talks about her daughter Jenna Bush mispronounces Sioux City as "Sigh-yocks City."

Okay, first off, Jenna Bush is a graduate of the University of Texas with a degree in ENGLISH!

Secondly, aren't librarians supposed to be all about literacy?

Thirdly, why in the world would a First Lady use THAT anecdote - to illustrate that the celebration of mediocrity in the Bush family runs through generations????

Welcome to America Folks. Where it's more important to ensure that gays can't marry, where bad things
should only happen to people of a darker color, where mispronouncing a very very AMERICAN word is a source of laughter or used as an illustration that the elite is after all, one of us.

Go on, Bush Family, Continue to show us exactly how mediocre you really are.
