After the fanfare surrounding first lady Michelle Obama's new wax figure at Madame Tussauds in downtown Washington Tuesday, we noticed something peculiar: No Republican first ladies have had the honor of being immortalized in wax at the museum.
Besides Mrs. Obama, the Tussauds inventory here includes a figure of Hillary Rodham Clinton and, not one, but two gloved and ladylike Jackie Kennedys.
But nary a Nancy Reagan, Betty Ford or Barbara or Laura Bush.
Odd isn't it. The museum says it's due to lack of requests. Really? B/c I seem to remember Laura Bush being a VERY popular first lady. Some even said SHE was a big part of Bush winning the 2nd term. Do you think this is pretty crappy? I wonder what the uproar would be if they left out other groups?
Interesting- but not surprising to say the least.
By the way- I must add, wax figures creep me out.
