Presidential brother Neil Bush -- putting aside remnants of a scandalous divorce, paternity questions and a scorned ex-wife -- married Maria Andrews Saturday night in the Memorial-area mansion of Rania and Jamal Daniel, longtime Bush family friends.
Close to 150 guests joined the newlyweds after a small family ceremony that included former President George Bush and Barbara Bush, parents of the groom. President George W. Bush and Florida Gov. Jeb Bush did not attend.
Standing with their father for the nuptials were Pierce, 17, and Ashley, 14. His eldest daughter, model and Princeton University student Lauren, did not attend.
Joining Andrews in the ceremony were her two older children, Elizabeth, 12, and Pace Andrews, 10.
The cocktail-attire evening included a seated dinner and dancing.
Neil Bush met Andrews several years ago when she was working as a volunteer in Barbara Bush's Houston office. They became engaged in December during a romantic dinner in a French chateau.
Meanwhile, his fake cowboy brother kisses up to real cowboys who apparently can't tell the difference between the one brother's pandering and the other's philandering enough to know that neither of them shares an iota of their own values.
And for dinner Dubya will take another $1 million on the way to his fundraising goal of $170 million for an unopposed campaign within his party.
Even now, Enron still plays an important financial role in the Bush campaign. The new Pioneer ($200,000+ donors) "list includes investor Peter Coneway, former Enron executive Nancy Kinder and businessman Fred Zeidman."
No word on where radioactive Neil and Maria are honeymooning.
