Column: Maybe the wrong Bush gets the blame

Dave Martin/The Associated Press<br>Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush is expected to be stripped of the award by the end of the month. The former Southern Cal running back would become the first player in the 75-year history of the award to have the Heisman Trophy taken away.

HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?

Reggie Bush faced losing his Heisman Trophy over NCAA violations Thursday. The trouble began when he was given a house he couldn't afford four years ago. Is it possible that all this time the White House has been blaming everything on the wrong Bush?

President Obama insisted at his press conference Friday that he will raise taxes on the wealthiest Americans. Tom Brady didn't know whether to laugh or to cry. The day after an airbag saved his seventy-eight-million-dollar contract, all the money went to another airbag.

New England Patriot Tom Brady was unhurt Thursday after his Saab collided head-on with an SUV in a Boston intersection. The police said that neither driver had been drinking. This would be a perfect time for Mel Gibson to step forward and point out that sobriety kills.

Tiger Woods' mistress Devon James was fired by the Midnight Bunny Ranch brothel Thursday for going public about herself and Tiger. It's just not done. She broke the house rule never to discuss the brothel's customers, particularly the ones voted Customer of the Month.

North Korea's dictator Kim Jong Il named his hard-partying youngest son Kim Jong Un to be his successor Friday. It's very risky to give national power to the son who drinks the most. You could wake up one morning in Iraq or Afghanistan with no memory of how you got there.

San Francisco had a massive fire in suburban San Bruno Thursday following a gas line explosion. Downstate near Los Angeles brushfires erupted, while wildfires raged across Colorado. President Obama called out the National Guard to make sure that no Korans were burned.

World Trade Center commemorations were marred by more threatened Koran burnings at evangelical churches across America Saturday. It was moving. What better way to honor the memory of firefighters than to set fire to paper on dried lawns across the nation?
