Not only is there much to support a theory that genetics prevents any member of the Bush from admitting mistakes, this same postulated strand of DNA also keeps them from saying they’re sorry, or acknowledging they’re vindictive (tell me why we are in Iraq again?), overblown morons with supernatural powers of denial.
Jeb’s All-Star Vendetta Against Michael Schiavo is surely an integral part of the hypothesis.
Naples (Florida) News guest editorial:
At every stage of the Terri Schiavo case Jeb Bush has been wrong and the husband of the comatose woman and the local, state and federal courts, who supported Michael Schiavo, right.
The Florida governor and his allies in trashing the courts and the poor woman’s right to privacy, the Senate and House Republican leaders, Bill Frist and Tom DeLay, were conclusively and, one could only hope, for the last time proved wrong again last month when the medical examiner released the results of his autopsy…
There, you would have thought, the matter would rest.
But the implacable governor had one more shot at Michael Schiavo in his arsenal. Still unwilling to let go, he asked a state’s attorney to launch a criminal investigation into alleged discrepancies in the time of her collapse…
The state attorney assigned two experienced prosecutors to the probe and their findings were released Friday… They re-plowed…all evidence and found no justification “to use our investigative powers to perpetuate suspicion where, despite extended litigation and a detailed autopsy, we have no proof to suggest that a crime has occurred.”
Wow. That’s pretty definitive. Embarrassing for Jeb, but maybe he could still come out holding his head up by saying something about his heart being in the right place, or that at least now the Schiavo and Schindler families can move forward, or even just something philosophical about the nature of life. So what did he in fact say when he announced this was the end of the whole mess, that he would let it go now?
“It’s done,” Bush told reporters at a hurricane briefing early Friday afternoon. “Sad tragedy. Horribly sad.”
Asked to elaborate, he said, “I think it’s pretty clear — sad tragedy. That’s what I mean. It’s a sad tragedy that this woman starved to death.”
Did you get that? The tragedy here is that Teri Schiavo was taken off life support – after a decade and a half, with no chance of recovery. That’s the big tragedy.
Congress needs to pass emergency legislation prohibiting any member of the Bush family from further reproducing until science can ensure the gene pool will be safe from whatever mental disorder plagues Jeb, W, Barb, George H.W., Neil, and the whole defective lot.
