Morality doesn't run in the Bush family

If "morality" was the issue in this year's election that put Bush over the top to win his second term, just take a look at the front page of The Gainesville Sun on Friday, Jan. 7.
There were two stories that appeared simultaneously with the name "Bush" attached. Here you have not one, but two Bushes minimizing what the general public would consider immoral: The use of torture in the detention of suspected terrorists illustrated by the president's choice for Alberto Gonzales as new attorney general, a man who clearly sanctioned those abuses, and by Gov. Bush's hiring of Lloyd Brown as a staff writer, a man who left his previous job because of plagiarism and sexual harassment charges.
The hypocrisy of the Bush family in general and the Bush administration in particular is unending, yet the conservative side of this country refuses to acknowledge it, pulling the entire country down with it.
