Great piece on Barbara Bush: “[T]aking on one of the president’s more withering critics, New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, the senior Mrs. Bush declared, ”Maureen is a brilliant writer, no doubt. I really do not read her anymore as she sounds so bitter, so unhappy, so negative, so clever, and straining to be different. Sometimes I don’t even get what she’s talking about! I’m sure this won’t bother her, but it makes me sad.””
