A Matter Of Interpretation

First Lady Laura Bush may have signaled a political split with her husband today during a calligraphy lesson she received at the Suchiya-cho Townhouse in Kyoto, Japan. The Chinese character Mrs. Bush is pictured holding is “ei”, which is widely understood to mean “eternity” but can also be interpreted to mean “My husband lied the country into war by misleading Americans into thinking there was a connection between Iraq and Al Qaeda and by falsely claiming that Saddam Hussein was reconstituting his country’s nuclear weapons program.”

Christ, if that's what that means when it comes to Bush, imagine the symbol that the respective wives of Cheney and Rove would have to hold up.. :)
