And if I go out tonight and get a DUI, can I claim it's a personal matter and that I will deal with it privately?
The Bush family still has a long way to go to catch up with a the drinking and drugs from that other political family.
But I have faith that the Bush family can catch up in a decade or less.
Would you be talking about that nice Mr Rasputin?
Sounds like another Bush presidency in the making.
I'm shocked. Shocked I tell you...
All along, I thought it was only the criminal and poor underclass that takes drugs, gets drunk, resists arrest and defrauds others.
Ahem. In case you didn't get the memo, I'll reiterate:
This is a personal matter that will be dealt with privately.
Nothing to see here.
no, they're just the only ones to serve time for it...
Only becuase they don't have the money for the lawyers and the "spin".
Thankfully, the gene pool is still intact, but that means there won't be a soul-searching examination and public confessional on Oprah. It's no big deal ... the Big O's holiday givaway will soon be aired in about 2 months.
Some day, when John Ellis Bush runs for something, I'm sure his campaign manager will refer to this incident as further proof that he's just plain folks.
Holy cow! Who ever heard of a 20-something being arrested for drunk and disorderly before? This must be news!
Now if he'd challenged his dad to fisticuffs....
Someone only doing 10 days for smoking rocks is newsworthy. We'll see if this nut that didn't fall far from the family tree gets the same treatment.
No, no! How could you have missed the political strategy for dealing with such things? He very publicly finds Jesus and then refuses to acknowledge his past.
It's all in the Book of Rove.
The child of a rich, famous, and/or connected kid getting a lighter sentence for just about anything isn't exactly news either. I mean, it should be but it's not.
Besides, what about the right to hire better representation than a regular person? Isn't that the capitalist ideal? The richest person deserves to be found less guilty through dint of their earning power. Or inheriting power.
I'm never really comfortable scoring political points over the family problems of opposing politicos. Unless their as scummy as Neil Bush. He's an exception to that rule. The pols themselves? No problem, they put themselves out there. If they're dirty I want to know. A pols immediate family? Well, that's a little greyer, particularly if the family member has put themselves out there politically in some capacity (i.e. Mary Cheney, the Kerry daughters). But unless it involves theft or fraud or something that affects the taxpayer dramatically, the extended family is generally off the hook with me.
I think Rush Limbaugh opened the door to political children being fair game when he, on his TV show, called Chelsea Clinton "The White House dog".
Yeah, but I'd rather see that door swung closed rather than wide open, you know?
