“I am lost between the glory of Reagan — monuments everywhere, trumpets, the great hero — and the trials and tribulations of my sons.”
— Former President George H.W. Bush
Is there a term that’s sort of like the Oedipus Complex (kill the daddy and marry the mommy), but when the Dad wants to murder the children? Anyway, it might explain the bru-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha over Poppy’s biography that has upturned ¡JEB! The Smartest Bush® campaign, what with saying that Blam-Blam and Rummy commandeered Chimpy’s Reign of Error and turned it into a cluster-fuck of unimaginable, un, fuckery.
It seems like every week someone from The Bush Crime Family reveals something that ¡JEB! was not prepared to deal with. But I would think that even a noted former pot-head like ¡JEB! must have been aware that there was a book in the works. Or perhaps it is the case that with that family’s trademarked lack of curiosity he didn’t think to ask? Or is it the case that Poppy did not think about telling him what he was saying? (see my question to Freud, above)
I’m guessing it is a combo of both. Babs-the-Impaler’s family is nothing if not dysfunctional, but I think feral might be a better word.
