Love it when Laura accuses conservatives of sexism

Laura Bush Echoes Sexism Charge in Miers Debate: "Laura Bush said yesterday that some critics of Harriet Miers may be motivated by sexism, echoing an allegation that earlier infuriated conservative activists opposed to the Supreme Court nominee.

On NBC's 'Today' show, Laura Bush joined President Bush in defending Miers as the 'most qualified' person her husband could have appointed to the Supreme Court. She also said it's 'possible' that questions about Miers's intellectual qualifications are sexist in nature, a charge other defenders of Miers have made publicly and in private conservations with conservatives opposed to the nomination."

By the way, has the video of this interview with Matt Lauer and the Prez and First Lady, and it's fascinating. Matt asks if the Habitat work stunt was merely a photo op, asked about the conservative backlash on Miers, asked about Rove... poor W was squirming, but I have to say he at least tried to answer some of the questions.
