^^because Republicans are monolithic airheads.
Oh, please, no one implied such a thing. I'm impressed because, unlike ordinary families, whose individual members are usually free to openly espouse differing political points of view, a President's spouse and children sometimes find themselves standing under the cleague lights of public scrutiny, and thereby generally must take care not to express a stance that might embarrass the President and/or his/her party. In this case, the viewpoint expressed by Bush's daughter flies in the face of Congressional Republicans' recent lockstep rejection of this very contentious issue. It takes chutzpah to do such a thing. That's all I'm saying.
