Recently it was reported that Florida Gov. Jeb Bush broke into tears as he 
addressed a drug summit in Tallahassee. Apparently the stress of having a 
drug addict for a daughter is just too much for the poor guy.

"I want to thank you on behalf of my wife for your prayers and for your 
quiet counseling in the last few months about our daughter Noelle," he 
said. "Bush men always cry, I apologize. It's a little genetic problem I 
got from my dad."

Never mind that his brother, the Boy King, has probably never cried in his 
life, unless you count the time he mocked Texas death row inmate Karla Faye 
Tucker, by pretending to cry as he begged, "Please don't kill me."

The Boy King's brother is a classic case of conservative self-compassion. 
He knows firsthand how tough it is to have a drug addict in the family when 
you're an extremely well-connected multi-millionaire white guy, but he's 
got no sympathy for poor minorites with the same problem.
