ANOTHER BUSH ON ROAD TO PRESIDENCY
In the finest tradition of the Family Values Party, the nephew of President Bush has started his long journey to the White House.
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.
John Ellis Bush was philosophical about the arrest and charges. "Hey, I only have another twenty years for youthful indiscretion. I may as well get the most out of it." John went on to say, "My parents? They're disappointed, sure. They told me if I keep it up I might wind up president."
In unrelated news, the Kennedy Clan contemplates a copyright infringement action against the Bush family. "They're taking our best stuff," said a Kennedy family spokesperson.
