Jeb: the Bush error apparent
Jeb: the Bush error apparent

by Ed Naha
August 18, 2006


Two relevant quotes from our President: I think Jeb would make a great President, and I like a good bologna sandwich. Maybe I should quit, now, while Im ahead.

Although Governor Jeb Bush of Florida has gone on record as not being interested in a presidential run in 08, just the thought of another Bush in the White House gives one the cerebral equivalent of freezer burn.

Now, a few of you might be thinking: Okay. Hes a Bush. But he doesnt play cowboy, seems kind of jovial and jowly (if you discount his beady eyes) and actually speaks English in a way that doesnt suggest a dyslexic Veg-o-matic. Hes not that bad.

Well, boys and girls, he is. Leaving his immediate familys run-ins with the law out of it, ol Jeb has an affinity for allowing voter purges, championing the rights of the brain-dead (could be a genetic thing), basing his decisions on religious beliefs, ignoring corruption, having children in foster care disappear, attacking public libraries and, like his brother, appointing some of the biggest morons to the most important jobs in his state. Hes also one of the original PNAC pack.

Aside from that? Hes great.

Who could argue with President Bush I, who told Larry King: This guys smart, big and strong. Makes the decisions.
By those standards, wed be better off voting for Hoss Cartwright, the gentle giant.
This year, alone, ol Jeb has found himself at the center of enough government scandals to make Dubya proud.

2. These guys will only repackage themselves and their extremist agenda...
...and resurface, whack-a-mole style.

Just like bad pennies, they keep turning up.

4. Jeb is badly needed to keep the lid on the crimes of Dad and Dimson.
We know he could give a shit about democracy, his Florida actions in 2000 prove that. This is all about protecting the family legacy.

6. Exactly right. It's about the BFEE *legacy* of cover for their deeds.
I hope we all are around to see the day all of their crimes are stacked up like cord wood, under a blaze of scrutiny, revulsion and justice by The People.
