Bush Related To Irish Warlord. Sort Of. [Say Anything]

The far-left British publication The Guardian is really scraping the bottom of the barrel when it comes to slamming President Bush.

The Guardian - It is perhaps not the best omen for US foreign affairs. Local historians in Wexford have discovered that George Bush is a descendant of Strongbow, the power-hungry warlord who led the Norman invasion of Ireland thus heralding 800 years of mutual misery.

With a long line of Scots Irish presidents including Woodrow Wilson, the Irish are normally quick to claim US leaders as their own. But, despite President Bush's large Ulster Scots vote in the American Bible belt, Ireland had let his family escape the genealogical microscope.

But now Ann Griffin Bernstorff, an artist working on a tapestry to commemorate Ireland's Norman heritage, has discovered what she claims is the Bushs' missing Irish link.

Ms Griffin Bernstorff was researching Strongbow's son-in-law, William Marshal, when she discovered the connection. A descendant of Marshal married Anne Marbury Hutchinson, a famous 16th century religious dissenter who had already been linked to Mr Bush.

"It is one of those bizarre developments," she said. "We traced the Bush genealogy through a Republican source in Chicago and found it was correct. People here are absolutely shocked. I'm not sure what the wider reaction will be, Bush has not been seen as a great friend of the Irish."

So Bush is related to an ancient warlord.

By marriage.

And this is supposed to provide us with some sort of meaningful commentary on the President and his administration? That's pretty pathetic. I'll bet the editors at The Guardian are cursing the fact that Bush isn't of German or Austrian heritage so they could trace a tenuous connection to Hitler and validate the complaints of moonbat protesters around the globe.
