Send A Birthday Greeting To Laura Bush courtesy of the (previously linked but always fascinating) Presidental Prayer Team. Here's Mine: Happy Birthday, Mrs. Bush! You and The President are the greatest! I hope Jenna and Barbara recognize that their parents are "cool" — as do the rest of us!

Do I get put on a list if I put anything negative?

What the hey, I just wished her a happy day...it's her husband I have professional disagreements with.

P.S., enough with the public scatology.

I wrote her a poem:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Everything changed on 9/11

I wished her a happy birthday, and wished her luck on getting George clean and sober.

Dear Laura,
I read on the internets it's your 59th birthday. I hope George doesn't misremember it, and that the twins don't send you another one of those embarrassing strippers again.

I'll bet you're counting the days until you and the hubby can retire to the ranch.
Me too.

[I'm also hoping to someday have a job I can retire from.]

Your pal,
NL

Dear Laura,

Just make it look like an accident.
I'll see you next week.


Love and smootches,

J

I'd send her a mirror with a post-it saying "this is who you've become" but, sigh, I doubt she'd want to look at it. She never likes any of my gifts.

She never likes any of my gifts.

Really, Peter? I got a nice, long, handwritten thank-you letter for the valentine heart-shaped cuts of sloppy meat that I sent her.
I'm surprised you haven't heard back yet.

Admittedly, I was tempted, but felt that Sharon Olds had already communicated far more eloquently than I might have hoped to do.

Poignant. I, however, prefer:

Roses are Red,
Violets are blouse
You killed your boyfriend
And now live in the White House

You're 59 years young today!
You've still got that school girl blush
Is it true you bet your blunts
And Vicodin from Rush?

You a laser in a teal blazer Lady1!!!
Smoke a fatty for me!!1!

I regularly send out my leftover Christmas and Channukah (sorry Ramadan) cards out to world leaders. Every year I've sent cordial wishes to the President and First Lady and every year I do, in fact, get a handwritten note back. Although they do seem to refer to my apartment as a "unit" rather than an apartment. Beats the form letters his pop used to send back.
