Good news! Your AARP membership finally delivers something of value - in addition to the $10 reduction at most national hotel chains. It’s an interview with Lady M!
Butt wait! There’s more! When asked if she was interested in pursuing a future for herself in politics, she answered definitively:
"The answer is N-O. Period, dot."
"I think one reason Jill and I are comfortable and happy is that we're doing what speaks to us. And what I've learned as a woman growing up, getting older, is you've got to know who you are. And a politician--it's never been who I was or wanted to be."
That’s true. Lady M always saw herself more as a smokin’ hot fashion icon than an ordinary politician. Butt being First Lady is like a dream come true: fashion icon and behind-the-scenes political tour de force just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded as the elected one. Sort of like our Czar program.
So no, she doesn’t intend to run for political office. For now she’s satisfied running things behind the scenes, just like her political and spiritual role model, Eva Peron.
I’ve often wished Evita had served as her fashion role model as well:
If you know what I mean.
Lady M has always been inspired by Eva’s socialist/populist politics and bourgeois life style. In fact, Evita’s 1947 “Rainbow Tour” of Europe served as inspiration for Lady M’s own world tours.
Butt I digress, back to the new AARP cover: Just as it promises, “The First Lady and Jill Biden set out to help America's military families” - there was Lady M yesterday in Concord, NH attending a “cookout” for the troops and their families at the National Guard Armory.
We wore our picnic tablecloth dress in honor of the occasion, although, as you see, we had to move the “cookout” indoors due to the oppressive heat reflecting off the blacktop in the picnic area/parking lot. Apparently nobody thought of cookouts when they designed the Armory.
No problem though, as you can see, the troops and their families were just as thrilled as they would have been at a real picnic with Lady M.
I know many of you probably no longer have the Perons on your radar. So in case you’d like a little more information on Lady M’s (and Big Guy’s) Argentinian role models and Argentina’s
fate history following the Perons’ reign, Dewey has an excellent slide show which is a Doug Ross original photo-essay set to music. If you’ve not seen it yet, it’s educational and might just be prophetic. Dewey is currently working to update it to reflect the Greek-like spending binge under the leadership of BaJuan & MichEvita OPerón. [note: the slideshow may take a while to load, but it’s worth the wait]
Well, I’ve got to run. Have to get ready for tomorrow’s big Rocky Mountain fund raising tour amidst the idle rich: Park City (!) for breakfast, Aspen for lunch and dinner. The tickets cost a fortune, so the food’s bound to be sumptuous!
