"On this year's White House Christmas tree will hang a most unusual ornament: a bulb saluting efforts to impeach President George W. Bush. A bulb by Washington state artist Deborah Lawrence is decorated with pictures and text commending Rep. Jim McDermott's (D-Wash.) efforts to impeach the president, the Washington Post reported. First Lady Laura Bush asked McDermott to select a local artist to decorate bulbs for the tree, and McDermott selected Lawrence."
I can't stand Bush. At the least, I would have supported preliminary investigation into whether grounds existed for impeachment. Pelosi and Reid could have started this process back in 2006. They didn't.
But, this juvenile prank - - surreptitiously slipping in a insult to your host on a tree ornament you've been invited to submit in good faith and in the spirit of the season - - is the equivalent of holding up your middle finger in the class yearbook picture. Are we supposed to be impressed with the cleverness of Rep. McDermott and this artist for getting away with something that obviously must have hurt and embarrassed Laura Bush?
