What’s Jeb Bush Up To?

From the Huffington Post:

If you’ve been worried sick about what would become of ex-Governor Jeb “No Futuro” Bush since his big brother totally screwed his chances for ever being elected president, here’s some great news. Jeb is now officially on the board of Tenet Healthcare, at an annual pay of $474,500–for 13 days of work per year.

It’s a special board seat created just for Jeb, at the suggestion of an old Bush family friend and fundraiser. (Do they even have any family friends who aren’t also fundraisers?)

As calculated by TheStreet.com, Jeb stands to collect a tidy $36,500 per day. All he has to do is sit on the board of a hospital chain so ethically challenged that even the Bush administration went after them.

  1. I dunno if this is true (and even if it is, it’s not much of a compliment) but I’ve heard that this guy isn’t quite as much of a scumbag as his brother… And that he is a little upset about how things are going with the shrub administration, since it pretty much puts the nail in the coffin for his own presidential ambitions…

    Oh, schadenfreude! Hey, it ain’t much, but it’s something.

    If there was any justice in the world, the entire, extended family would be dumped in Fallujah with “You don’t understand the joy of Hanukkah!” tattooed in Arabic on their foreheads.
