At a certain point, you have to notice something about the Bushes --

-- they may be really rich, but if they can't even convince their own children to respect authority or the law, why in hell should they expect any of us to do so?

"September 16,2005 | AUSTIN, Texas -- The youngest son of Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was arrested early Friday and charged with public intoxication and resisting arrest, law enforcement officials said.

John Ellis Bush, 21, was arrested by agents of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission at 2:30 a.m. on a corner of Austin's Sixth Street bar district, said commission spokesman Roger Wade.

The nephew of President Bush was released on $2,500 bond for the resisting arrest charge, and on a personal recognizance bond for the public intoxication charge, officials said.

Wade said he had no further details about the charges.

Gov. Bush and his wife Columba appeared Friday evening at a museum reception in Miami.

'My son's doing fine. It's a private matter. We will support him. We're sad for him. But I'm not going to discuss it on the public square with 30 cameras,' the governor told reporters.

--- Actually, Jeb, since you chose to ride your family's Third Reich and Saddam Hussein money into our lives via public office, tamper with OUR elections, and make moralistic pronouncements designed to intimidate all of us, YOU DON'T HAVE ANY PRIVATE MATTERS.

It's not the first time Florida's first family has experienced legal problems with one of their children.

Noelle Bush, the governor's daughter, was arrested in January 2002 and accused of trying to pass a fraudulent prescription at a pharmacy to obtain the anti-anxiety drug Xanax. She completed a drug rehabilitation program in August 2003 and a judge dismissed the drug charges against her."

As I said -- if he can't even teach his own children to obey the law, well, fuck him. Let him start his bullshit at home, and when that works, well then, give us all a shout.
