So confusing. Didn't we already know George and Laura Bush were moving to Dallas once he the president left the White House in January? Haven't they said this a thousand times -- most recently, like, Sunday? Well, apparently we need further confirmation, which came today at the White House as the First Lady was introducing "A Red, White and Blue Christmas," which seems awful original. Said Laura: "We will be moving to Dallas in January, and there might be a new house coming along. So I think that's where we'll spend our Christmas money." Ho-ho-haw. Adds ABC News: "Though it sounds as though they've picked out a new house, the First Lady's spokeswoman Sally McDonough said Mrs. Bush and her husband do 'not have occupancy yet' of a home." I should think not. --Robert Wilonsky
Update: Here's the video of Laura Bush making yet another "unofficial" announcement concerning the couple's pending move to Dallas. And as the cold wind blows in from the north on this Thursday night, this second update: Candy Evans on DallasDirt believes she's got the details concerning the quite-possible Bush manse off Walnut Hill Lane and the Dallas North Tollway. Turns out, my parents already knew this, from a friend of a friend who lives next door. Asked Mom tonight, "So, do you know where the Bushes are moving?" Yes, Mom. Jeez.
