To the tabloids, Robin!

Jeb has a daughter who's been trying to kick a drug habit. Now his son John is in the same position. It's no laughing matter, but it is another reminder of the mystifying mindset of so-called "value voters" who continue to support the GOP in spite of rising poverty, unprecendented corruption, graft, etc. Just ask Representative Randall "Duke" Cunningham, whose son was convicted for possession of 400 pounds of marijuana.

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.

Sure, Austin is a fun city. But I partied there many a time and never found myself in any danger of being arrested. Oh, and I don't think Jeb will be making a play for the White House any time soon.
