About this product
- DescriptionSteven Bush is a man on a mission--to confront the skeletons in his family closet. Did his very own cousins rule a country that, even today, after electing its ?rst African American president, still seems bent on world domination? What can he, a distant relation of the Bushes (so the story goes), do to end the madness and redeem the family name? Ever since the bloodless coup that felled the Republic (the controversial American election of 2000), Steven Bush has been hard at work to prove--or disprove--his blood ties to those bad Bushes in the White House. Drawing on documents related to the Iran Contra scandal and other drugs, money, guns and oil shenanigans of the CIA, as well as bizarre stories from Bush ancestral lore, he presents the American Empire created by George Bush Sr. and George Bush Jr. as a clear and present danger to us all. Steven Bush's one-man stand-up comedy, rant, political protest and call for the war-crimes trials of both George H.W. and George W. Bush is a brash theatrical tour de force that dares his audiences to accompany him on a personal quest for evidence of honesty, decency and complicity in a world of damning facts and murky conspiracy theories. Meticulously researched, including two pages of bibliography and twenty pages of foottes to substantiate every wild allegation made during the show, and with a Postscript to the Reader that asks some sticky questions of America's newest president, Barack Obama, this may well t be an attempt to ?ush the Bushes from their cover at all, but rather what Bembo Davies calls in his Afterword an installation of self in a world gone mad--an installation that asks what we the people are going to do about regaining our collective sanity.
