Another Bush Whacked . . . .

This story may not be of interest to everyone, but as "drf" and I have lived under not one but two bushes since 2001 we found this article quite satisfying:

University of Florida squabbles over snub to Jeb Bush
POSTED: 9:46 a.m. EDT, March 24, 2007

GAINESVILLE, Florida (AP) -- University of Florida President Bernie Machen says he was "tremendously disappointed" with the school's Faculty Senate vote to deny former Gov. Jeb Bush an honorary degree.

The Senate voted 38-28 Thursday against giving the honorary degree to Bush, who left office in January.


Karma and The Universe do equalize things out, after all.

Sometimes it just takes a while longer than we would like . . . .

I wonder if it had anything to do with Chang, his mystical warrior friend.

"Below, courtesy of the Gainesville Sun, are Bush’s words, “spoken before hundreds of lawmakers and politicians”:

“Chang is a mystical warrior. Chang is somebody who believes in conservative principles, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism, believes in moral values that underpin a free society.

“I rely on Chang with great regularity in my public life. He has been by my side and sometimes I let him down. But Chang, this mystical warrior, has never let me down.”

Bush then unsheathed a golden sword and gave it to Rubio as a gift.

”I’m going to bestow to you the sword of a great conservative warrior,” he said, as the crowd roared."

Don't know about Chang, but we're glad to get rid of one Bush, and are waiting to get rid of another in January '09 . . . .
