Thank you! Good night, everybody!

I was joking the other day that the result of the papal election would not be suspicious -- unless the winner turned out to have shadowy ties to the Bush family.

People, it was a joke. Even I'm not that cynical.

Then I saw this story in Newsday:
WASHINGTON -- Neil Bush, the president's controversial younger brother, six years ago joined the cardinal who this week became Pope Benedict XVI as a founding board member of a little known Swiss ecumenical foundation.

The charter members of the board were all well-known international religious figures, except for Bush and his close friend and business partner, Jamal Daniel, whose family has extensive holdings in the United States and Switzerland, public records show.
Attention, Bush family. I'm done trying to make fun of you. It can't be done. It's like ridiculing a clown for his appearance.
