Laura Bush, five years ago: “I was the librarian who spent 12 hours a day in the library, yet somehow I met George.”

Paul McCartney, this week: “After the last eight years, it’s good to have a president that knows what a library is.”

One of these was a grievous insult to the flag, the Founding Fathers, Jesus, the Myrrhkin people, and apple pie, necessitating flagellation and an apology. Guess which one.
