Bush to mother: Dont sell on eBay

Several mothers who have lost children at war in Iraq took part in a new talk show today on National Public Radio.
One of them, Elaine Johnson, recounted a meeting that she had with President Bush in which he gave her a presidential coin and told her and five other families: “Donâ€™t go sell it on eBay.â€

“Then he gave us a presidential coin,” she said. “Now you check this out: He gave six of us a presidential coin, tell us not to tell the rest of the people that was there, and then after that he told us donâ€™t go sell it on eBay. Now you tell me how insensitive that can be? What kind of caring person is that?”
It’s just not possible to make this kind of stuff up. No human being could be so compassionless that they could have written this dialog. Well, ok, maybe Charles Manson… Maybe.
Next up on eBay, the very same 30 pieces of silver that paid for the life of Jesus Christ… Offered up by an anonymous seller who listed both a D.C. and a Texas address.
