Pardon this brief sojourn outside Vermont’s borders, but I just can’t resist.

As my readers are painfully aware, I’m a big fan of irony. But this… this is Irony Overload. This is irony so bright you can’t stare directly at it for fear of going blind. This is nuke-level irony that can destroy an entire city. This is Irony That Wiped Out The Dinosaurs.

This is… sick.

Jeb Bush is utterly clueless or completely shameless, one or the other. Because his own family is a walking, talking, multigenerational advertisement for American social immobility. Wikipedia:

Along with many members who have been successful bankers and businessmen, across generations the family includes two U.S. Senators, one Supreme Court Justice, two Governors and two Presidents (one of the two presidents also served as Vice President).  …Peter Schweizer, author of a biography of the family, has described the Bushes as “the most successful political dynasty in American history”.

So all we have to do is make Jeb the third Bush president in less than twenty years, and he’ll get right to work on that social mobility thing.

    Sure, throw in the American Borgia gene pool one major traitor–Prescott Bush, found guilty of trading with the Nazis throughout the war via UBS, never imprisoned; George H.W., on record whopper lying about where he was on Nov. 22, 1963, then lying again to try to cover up the original lie, never deposed under oath;son Neil Bush narrowly escaping conviction ahead of the Silverado S&L, now a kingpin in the mandatory education testing racket; son George W. Bush, deserter; W’s wife Laura, driver in a hit-and-run accident, fatality resulting, never prosecuted.

    I count treason, desertion in time of war, possible conspiracy to commit murder, and manslaughter as the strange fruit hanging off this family tree.
