Progressives are angry with me because I asked this last night: A few of them are demanding that yes, Laura Bush presented at the Oscars. This is their proof: Being in a few seconds of a prerecorded Errol Morris short is the same thing as being invited to present the Best Picture award live at the Oscars after it was arranged by Harvey Weinstein? No. My point stands. *UPDATE: This from Reuters via @sandykbal, my emphasis:
U.S. first lady Michelle Obama made a surprise and unprecedented appearance on Sunday's Oscars telecast when she presented the award for Best Picture, the first time a president or first lady has ever presented an Academy Award.Point made.
