First Lady makes indecent jokes

Laura Bush was funny and risked alienating Christian conservatives and defenders of family values, when she made these jokes at the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner:

 "Ladies and gentlemen, I am a desperate housewife. I mean, if those women on that show think they're desperate, they ought to be with George. One night, after George went to bed, Lynne Cheney, Condi Rice, Karen Hughes and I went to Chippendales. I wouldn't even mention it except [Supreme Court Justices] Ruth Ginsberg and Sandra Day O'Connor saw us there. I won't tell you what happened, but Lynne's Secret Service code name is now 'Dollar Bill.'"

She then added: "He's learned a lot about ranching since that first year when he tried to milk the horse. What's worse, it was a male horse."

She joked about her husband's proclivity to spend his vacation days at their Texas ranch clearing brush: "Or, as the girls call it, the Texas chainsaw massacre. George's answer to any problem at the ranch is to cut it down with a chainsaw -- which I think is why he and Cheney and Rumsfeld get along so well."
