$850,000 bet issued in defamation suit involving Neil Bush

By HARVEY RICE
Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle

An attorney issued an $850,000 "put-up-or-shut-up" challenge Friday in a defamation lawsuit that questions whether President Bush's brother Neil fathered a child with another woman while married to Sharon Bush.

The suit's two parties would bypass the courts and each wager $850,000 or another agreed-upon amount on the outcome of a DNA test that would settle the paternity question, according to a letter sent by attorney Dale Jefferson.

Jefferson represents Robert Andrews, ex-husband of Neil Bush's fiancee, Maria Andrews, and the purported father of 3-year-old Thomas Andrews.

Robert Andrews sued Sharon Bush alleging she spread a rumor that Neil Bush fathered Thomas.

1. This could be fun
...perhaps we could use some of Sorus's money to develop similar challenges on all the Bushes lies, murky pasts, misdoings, cover-ups and scandals.

4. Is anyone checking the paternity of Neil's prostitutes
in Thailand...I don't know if they have children or not, but I guess you have to already have money for people to care if a Bush fathered an illegit child.

I read something recently on another site from someone in L.A who said that you could always tell when the republicans were in town by the line of hookers at the back door of the hotel.

5. Who's That Avatar?
Is it a fossil of a Sand Dollar, or is it, perhaps, a fossilized member of the mysterious and unearthly Ediacara Fauna?

That Bush thing? They're almost as good as AbFab, ain't they?

I dreamed I met an Honest Bush
Amidst the fauna lying
I must have been stoned off my tush
And hit my head while flying

6. Wow, right on the money!
It's a fossil known as Dickinsonia from the Late Precambrian Ediacara fauna of South Australia.

8. Do I know my Ediacaran Fauna, or what?
Actually, I once wrote a sci-fi story involving sentient Ediacaran Fauna with a group mind. I had a lot more fun reading about the critters than writing the story, which to this day sits toward the bottom of my own personal archeological record.

I must have seen a bigger copy of that picture, but I couldn't quite identify it at first.

So ... I guess the "DinoBoy" nick isn't a play on the current state of politics. :)

7. Ya know it really amazes me how the media ignores Neil Bush...
If his name was Neil Clinton or Carter or Rhodam Fox, CNN, MSNBC ect would have its programing in stone for months..I thought it was odd that when Dumbya was running that they never NOT ONCE mentioned how ol' Neil was knee deep in the S&L fruads..( Like i said if his name was Neil Clinton... ) But now this..
One of these days the people will wake up that these so called news channels are taking them for fools...
Lib Media MY ASS!!!

9. There's been absolutely nothing on TV
about Neil's divorce. It's a lot more fascinating than Kobe Bryant, I'd say. Roger Clinton wasn't protected the way Neil is. There's been more about Chelsea's dates than Neil.

11. If this concerned a Democrat we would be seeing 24/7 photographs of
his herpetic member. Betcha.
