Is it wierd that Kerry and Bush were both skull and bones?
Is this wierd or is it just coincidence?
Only 15 members are tapped every year for S&B...Out of almost 298,444,215 americans, this still doesn't seem wierd at all?

NO! They are our ruling class.15 skull and bones get chosen every year, its no surprise that at least one, sometimes two, end up as the major candidates out of 280,000,000 Americans...the math adds up, its pure coincidence.
yalie Skull and bones include.....George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, Prescott "the nazi" Bush, and William Howard Taft along with Supreme Court Justices, business leaders and U.S. Senators such as John F. Kerry.

No, that's just the real truth about politics. You can choose the Bonesman from the slight left or Bonesman from the slight right, Diebold will decide.
Either will continue the war as long as it is profitable (to some) and tolerated (by the many).
A curious story for you: The descendents of Indian Chief Geronimo continue to petition the Bush Family to return Geronimo's skull which was stolen from his grave reputedly by Prescott Bush.Source(s): Common Knowledge.

A lot of very prominent people were in the Skull and Bones Society. I think it's just a very selective group at a very selective school, so naturally, many of the people in it would be leaders in our society.
So basically, not really a coincidence, but definitely not a conspiracy.

What, that two students at the same university are members of the same society? That's not a coincidence, nor is it weird.

Yes, and what about the other politicians too. It's a bit eerie. I agree with you there.
