We were wrong about Barbara Bush's motivation

Our "well, duh" moment
We have to admit it: we were wrong. The other day, we opined that Bar Bush's blast aimed at Gov. Palin was likely made because she wanted to see Jeb in the White House as the Bush-in-chief. Well, that's likely still a pipe dream for Mama Frizzly, but it's not the reason why she gratuitously gonged the guv. Turns out her Sarah slap was not just Jeb jive; it's RINO rapture:
Former President George H.W. Bush and former first lady Barbara Bush named Mitt Romney as their favorite Republican for the 2012 presidential nomination.

"If you asked me, who was the nominee be, I couldn't tell you. We like Mitt Romney. We know him well and like him very much," Bush said in an interview with CNN's Larry King.

The former president then joked about his support, saying: "Don't want to kill him off."

"He's a reasonable guy. A conservative fellow, which is good. But, no, I think he'd be a good president, a very good president," Bush said of the former Massachusetts governor.

The former first lady echoed Bush's words when she was asked her favorite.

"I'll go with George. Mitt Romney. I like a lot of them. But I like people who feel that you can respect other people's ideas. I like that a lot," Barbara Bush said.
Mitt is a "conservative" fellow? Well, to a progressive like Poppa Bush, Romney must seem conservative. And the Bushies are all about respecting other people's ideas. After all, they've adopted Bill Clinton as a dishonorary son, and Bush41 glowingly introduced Obama last fall at a Points of Light function held at the GHWB library, just a couple of miles down the road from here on the Texas A&M campus. To return the favor, the current prez will award the former one the Medal of Freedom next year. Feel the love! Hey, it's easy to respect another person's ideas when you both hold them in common.

Let's face it, the elder Bushes don't like the Sarahcuda one bit because she wants to make Vichy Republicans like them a politically endangered species. More power to her.
