Imperial Entanglements

Seated, from left, are Marvin Bush, Laura Bush, President Bush, Barbara Bush, former president Bush and Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Standing behind them are Georgia Grace Koch, Margaret Bush, Walker Bush, Jenna Bush, Doro Koch, Barbara Bush, Robert P. Koch, Pierce M. Bush, Maria Bush, Neil Bush, Ashley Bush, Sam LeBlond, Robert Koch, Nancy Ellis LeBlond, John Ellis Bush Jr., Mandi Bush, George P. Bush and Columba Bush.

While I couldn’t make myself read the slobberingly puffy Bush Dynasty article in Monday's Washington Post, I did study the accompanying Imperial Family portrait and noticed a few interesting bits.
First, the President, looking every inch the special birthday boy though the event celebrated Bar and Poppy’s Diamond wedding anniversary, was wearing his supremely ridiculous presidential seal cowboy boots.

Don’t you just know the uncomfortable-looking Jeb, out of Bar’s line of sight, murderously rolls his eyes at the esposa when he sees these ostentatious little gems?
Anyway, when eyeballing the front row, it seemed that two of Jeb and the President’s siblings were missing.
After further intensive study and a quick consultation with my trusty and well-thumbed Kitty Kelly, I knew the identities of the missing sibs and began to suspect a missing niece.
Absent from the warm embrace of the seated front row were the President’s divorced sister and brother, Doro and the infamous Neil.
Where could they be and what dynastic rumblings could this suggest?
Further study of the photo and its massive cut line revealed both Doro and Neil in, but just barely, the photo.
Both marriage-impaired Bush siblings are shown unceremoniously placed in the 3rd row, behind a line of nieces and nephews and well out of the front row power penumbra.
Anyone even remotely familiar with family photos would find this placement curious and one cannot but wonder at the, no doubt, Bar-instigated dynamic.

Neil’s widely publicized and recent elections year troubles are, of course, widely known and if I was Bar I’d stick him in the 3rd row.

But, Doro’s placement, to me, remains curious.
According to la Kitty her first husband was a more working class type who didn’t mesh with the power and status mad Bush boys.
Then, again from Kitty’s steaming pages, Doro remarried a more socially acceptable (nervous throat clearing), um, Democrat in a Camp David ceremony during her father’s presidential term.
It seems unlikely to a non-imperial normal person that a Democratic 2nd husband would be the cause of Doro’s 3rd row banishment except for the fact that Mother Bar is said to share her favorite Presidential son’s penchant for lengthy and most unchristian grudges.
Additional perusals most curiously fail to show any young Bush niece named Noelle.
Were this vale of tears really imperial Rome our Doro and old Neilsie would have felt a sword’s kiss long before now.
Perhaps that explains Jeb's missing daughter.

You are ridiculous and just plain mean. A family is a family--just that. It is a happy moment and a dedicated and loving group of people who have actually GIVEN a great deal to their (my) country and I am thankful and grateful for that. I like the Bush family.
Amazing...5 years and 8 months after this post it gets 2 opposite comments on the same day...Both person's search engine skills are tiptop.
Interesting that the Bush supporter who thinks I'm mean (get in line) doesn't support the corrupt Bush family enough to have their name associated with the remark.
