I assume this report is true and that the tainted blood of the Bush clan is interesting, but why is it being revealed now?
Because Obama's in trouble, and it's the next thing that could be pulled out of the country's miscellaneous bag o' distractions?
Because Jeb's in that lineage too, and he's in the running for next President, and he said something embarrassing recently, so it was a good time to kick him?
Because the George Zimmerman trial is getting underway, and that hasn't worked out as well as some in the race-baiting industry had hoped, and maybe some unrelated racial disturbance would resonate?
Because Paula Deen said something really stupid about slavery, so the editors at Slate looked around in their storehouse of as-yet-unpublished articles and found one that had slavery?
