Time for Plan B!

Why not just say the Empress had a problem with her medications?

First she opens her yap and vigorously inserts an appendage:

In an interview published Wednesday in USA Today, the newspaper asked the wife of Democratic candidate John Kerry if she would be different from Laura Bush as a first lady.

"Well, you know, I don't know Laura Bush. But she seems to be calm, and she has a sparkle in her eye, which is good," Heinz Kerry said. "But I don't know that she's ever had a real job — I mean, since she's been grown up."
After her handlers stopped wailing, she distributes an apology:
"I had forgotten that Mrs. Bush had worked as a school teacher and librarian, and there couldn't be a more important job than teaching our children.

Awww! But that swell sentiment still manages to offend women who work at home.

And the best part is Teresa's claim in her apology to be have "been both a full time mom and full time in workforce"(sic). Teresa's only time in the workforce was a brief gig as a United Nations translator in Geneva where she snagged her wealthy husband. Since then she's done nothing but spend his money. Kind of like Zsa Zsa Gabor with better aim.
