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.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.
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.
