Speaking of Nazis

We all know this already, but:

George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.
So, if, as Jonah Goldberg explains, Nazis are vegetarians, and vegetarians are liberals, and Bush is a Nazi...Bush is a liberal?

Will someone please put some boundaries on reality already? I'm starting to get a headache.

As we can see, Yo Mama is a Marxist jokes work both ways. Part of me is glad that most liberals make fun of these kinds of issues rather than create an entire world view around them. If only we could get the establishment press to join the reality-based community, this election might actually be as meaningful as its historical precedence should make it.

yeah, that's not going to happen. They've been out of the reality loop for so long that I don't think most of them would recognize it.

are there bad guys that the Bush family HASN'T played with (or strolled through gardens holding hands with)?

wng: I don't think they can be traced back to Genghis Khan, but I could be wrong. That said, according to some, Genghis Khan actually got a bad rap, so maybe he doesn't count anyway.

I think they used to BBQ with Pontius Pilate...or maybe that's just a rumour...
