I haven’t really looked into this, but I’ve heard that Jeb Bush has been occasionally trying to distance himself from his brother George W in recent months, such as on Iraq and spending. I’m sure it’s more complicated than that, but that’s the way it’s seemed. I can understand too. Jeb has to make his own way politically and though many people liked W, many people didn’t…and maybe too many of W’s old supporters are already pledged to other candidates. In any event, I think the bigger question is whether all of this will make Jeb’s holidays tense.
I mean, does W understand? Does he care? Or, does it make him a little miffed?
Jeb: “George, would you pass the turkey?”
W: “Bite me, Jeb.”
At least, that’s the way I imagine it. I’m sure W takes it all in stride and understands why Jeb thinks it’s necessary…but my way is funnier.
