One would have to wonder if President George Bush comes up with his own punch lines or if someone is writing them for him. Either way, in bad taste, the President joked that he wanted to send the “Jessica jinx” to this summer’s Democratic National Convention in Denver.
What the heck was he thinking? Neither Jessica Simpson nor boyfriend Dallas Cowboy quarterback Tony Romo have responded to Bush’s comment. Jessica got a lot of crap when she showed up at one of Tony’s games and most consider it the worst game of Romo’s career. Actually, Bush made his jinx comments in front of members of the Super Bowl-winning New York Giants when they visited the White House recently so it is likely it was right off the cuff.
One celebrity who did chime in on the cut was Dixie Chicks singer Natalie Maines, who has had her share of tension with the President. Maines even went as far as to write a song about her run in with W entitled Shut Up and Sing. When Natalie was asked what she thought Jessica should do about the presidential slam, she recommended that Simpson should “pick back.” Not so fast Jessica. Before you heed her advice, remember that Natalie barely escaped with her career after her loose lips fiasco.
What do you think Jessica should do? Leave us a comment and let us know.
