WTF - is this a joke?
Gov. Bush & his mystical buddy
After more than an hour of solemn ceremony naming Rep. Marco Rubio, R-West Miami, as the 2007-08 House speaker, Gov. Jeb Bush stepped to the podium in the House chamber last week and told a short story about "unleashing Chang," his "mystical warrior" friend.

Here are Bush's words, spoken before hundreds of lawmakers and politicians:"Chang is a mystical warrior. Chang is somebody who believes in conservative principles, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism, believes in moral values that underpin a free society.

"I rely on Chang with great regularity in my public life. He has been by my side and sometimes I let him down. But Chang, this mystical warrior, has never let me down."

Bush then unsheathed a golden sword and gave it to Rubio as a gift.

"I'm going to bestow to you the sword of a great conservative warrior," he said, as the crowd roared...

10. Seriously?
I thought the Bush's were conservative evangelical Christians? I'm a Christian who believes in ghosts, guides, angels, etc. but then again I don't proclaim to be a conservative anti this and anti that Christian.

16. That was my thought when I read it too.
I didn't think it would go over real well with his Evangelical mob.

2. It's not a joke. Randi has been making fun of him for days over it.
I almost got in a wreck I was laughing so hard the first time I heard her talk about it. :)

12. Don't forget Bush's comment about God
Remember someone told how Bush proclaimed God told him to get Iraq? Do you think it was really someone else? Because I don't think God would tell him to strike Iraq for oil and a neocon agenda.

15. Maybe it's what he calls his little general
His John Thomas, his "little man" or whatever the Bush family call them.
