Laura Bush: “I am a desperate housewife.”

Laura Bush cut it up at the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner.

The president began a speech late Saturday at the 91st annual White House Correspondents’ Association dinner, but was quickly “interrupted” by his wife in an obviously planned ploy.

“Not that old joke, not again,” she said to the delight of the audience. “I’ve been attending these dinners for years and just quietly sitting there. I’ve got a few things I want to say for a change.”

The president sat down and she proceeded to note that he is “usually in bed by now” and said she told him recently, “If you really want to end tyranny in the world, you’re going to have to stay up later. “

She outlined a typical evening: “Nine o’clock, Mr. Excitement here is sound asleep and I’m watching Desperate Housewives.” Comedic pause. “With Lynne Cheney. Ladies and gentlemen, I am a desperate housewife.

Finally the second Bush First Lady shows she has a sense of humor. Although, I really have a hard time believing she watches Desperate Housewives.
