Neil Bush, that is. Mark Steyn analyses the Bush familyís Billy Carter:

Neil Bush is doing a pretty good impression of the Left's caricature of George W: a dimwit son of privilege riding his father's contacts to some sweetheart business deals.

George W.ís youngest brother makes up for Neilís flaws:

The baby of the family, Marvin, has always kept a low profile, eschewing politics entirely, except for a crack during the 2000 Presidential campaign that "that great sucking sound you hear is the sound of the media's lips coming off John McCain's a...", at which point he was dragged off by Dubya's minders.

Sounds like he'd make a fine columnist.

Sounds like someone needs to get Marv a blog.

Listen, I'm just a salesman. If a woman came to my hotel room unknown to me, who just insisted, she wanted me for my body. I'd first question her sanity (my body ain't all that great) and I wouldn't touch her with a ten-foot pole. This is risky in the extreme. She could have a knock-out drug, an accomplice, even just to steal a hundred bucks I carry in cash.

Now, imagine you are the brother of the President!! Dumm, dumm, dumm!

This sounds like that scene in ``Lost in Translation'' where one of Bill Murray's Japanese hosts sends a hooker up to his room. Is this what passes for courtesy in Asia? - free soap and shampoo in the bathroom, free hooker in the bed?

Living in the virginia suburbs of DC, I run into Marvin Bush just about every morning as we all stop off for coffee on the way to work.
He is one of the nicest people I've ever met. He remembers peoples' names - (and he meets a lot of them) - all the regular morning customers know his brother is the prez, but he doen't allow the security aspect of that fact distance him from anyone. He always sincerely asks about how spouses and children are doing, how some holiday, trip, or project went - he really is the decent and humble sort (rare in the legal profession around here), and doesn't seem to have of display his interest in politics. If he didn't put a "W" bumper sticker on his car, one would never know his political affiliation. I only hope he doesn't find out i'm tattling on him!
