I don't know whether this story is true -- Bush White House won't host Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles, because both have been divorced, but...

Alberto R. Gonzales, Attorney General, Divorced 1985

Mike Johanns, Secretary of Agriculture, Divorced 1985

Roderick R. Paige, former Secretary of Education, Divorced

Not to mention that W cheerleader Rush Limbaugh has been divorced multiple times -- I think it's at least three. Along with the President's little brother, Neil. There may be more in the cabinet, but I couldn't help but feel slimy just reading bios of these people. Readers, feel free to share anyone I've missed.

Ain't hypocrisy a pretty thing? "Well... um... okay, those cabinet members may be divorced, but they're our divorcees..."

And to think -- the Bush campaign tried to make such a big deal out of John Kerry's divorce papers. Where were the Senate Dems to bring up this issue when they were bending over backwards to confirm Mr. Torture himself, Gonzales?

Incidentally, Ari Fleischer, former press secretary, didn't marry until the age of 42, after he became press secretary. His bride was an OMB employee. And we still don't know whether he was involved in l'affair Guckert/Gannon. I'm not implying anything, I'm just sayin'... Family values 'n all, you know...
