What Do The Bushes Have Against Broccoli, Anyway?

The Bushes hate broccoli

At a recent Florida business breakfast, current GOP presidential front-runner Jeb Bush continued a fine family tradition of maligning broccoli. “I was kind of the Eat Your Broccoli Governor,” he said in a reference to his governance of the state from 1999 to 2007. The implication being, of course, that the cruciferous vegetable may be good for you but, damn, that shit is disgusting.

As far as I know, his brother, George W. Bush, isn’t on record at all regarding his personal feelings about vegetables, though his wife was reportedly “adamant about using organic products,” in the kitchen during his presidency. But, as those of a certain age may remember, his father, George H.W. Bush, held a famous and public disdain for broccoli. He even banned its consumption on Air Force One.

So, I guess, the question I have is…What the hell do the Bushes have against Broccoli?! Smoke some weed, drench that shit in butter, and put some garlic salt on it. You’ll be good. Trust me.

  1. damn, Sam! We are like…in the same brain or something. How absol coolio. Also–I love broccoli AND weed. Jeb certainly needs to smoke some (what the hell kinda name is Jeb if you’re not a Bev hillbilly) And due to your cool topic matter, and acknowledgement about link-dropping, the link totally stays! (I feel the same way, and always mention something to that effect the rare time I leave a link…Must be a sense-itivity unique to us)

    I’d folla’ if you were a WuhPeep…as it is–nice to see you..:)

    • Thank you! Your awesome poem was such a complement to this piece that I had to share.

      Nice to see you too, and thanks for the kind words, but…what is a WuhPeep, if you don’t mind me asking? How do we join the club? 🙂
