It's Still Bush's Fault

I was struck (but not surprised) by the headline of this AP news item, which is reporting that Yale University has banned its chapter of the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity from recruiting and activities for five years after ordering its pledges to chant obscenities toward women:

"Yale Suspends Bushes' Fraternity for Sexist Chants"

Now, aside from the fact that a few other ex-presidents, a supreme court justice, several national politicians and other dignitaries Republican and Democrat alike have likely graced the DKE porcelain microphones with their gastro oratory skills over the years, you can't really hold a political family dynasty responsible for the behavior of a few perverted, sick individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole political system? And if the whole political system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our American institutions in general? And if this is...oh, forget it.

UPDATE 5/18: The headline, as it appeared 5:22pm EST yesterday...

I may be missing something, but it appears that AP changed its headline. Perhaps they realized their otter ridiculousness.

Don't worry man, I'm pre-law.

I though you were pre-med?

What's the difference?
