I'm with stupid!

While at brunch with my dearest friend and confidante advice columnist Donatella Biachi today, I made the mistake of mentioning the State of the Union address.

Like most of us, Donatella was appalled at the idea that both Cindy Sheehan and Beverly Young were escorted out of the building for wearing tee shirts expressing their respective opinions regarding the war in Iraq.

"Whatever is happening to 'free speech,'" Donatella asked.

Before I had a chance to respond, she quickly added "do you think they would have escorted Laura Bush out if she had been wearing her favorite "I'm with stupid" tee?

According to Donatella, "the only crime committed here was felony tackiness." "A frumpy cotton t-shirt at a formal event? What, there are no Talbot stores in D.C.?"

Sometimes, you just have to smile at the absurdity of it all...... to keep from crying at the state of the union!

Donatella always has this special way of cutting through all of the crap and getting right down to the meat of the matter.

Love you both.
