Jeb Bush "unleashing Chang"

Jeb Bush meets Tim Treadwell meets Robert Bly:

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. [Gainsville.com; Sept 18, 2005.]

As we've said here before, the problem with the Bushies is that they're just satire-proof. No matter what grotesque, gothic caricature you could come up with, they're weirder. This was posted by the Gainesville Sun on the 18th and went [Read More]

I've often said that the New Age and its affiliated hocus-pocus isn't a liberal movement.

This proves me right.

You can make fun about him all you like, but Jeb Bush is winning serious kudos for HIS way of handling hurricanes. By the time 2008 rolls around, a lot of people will have forgotten the way he didn't handle the entire Schiavo mess, or that he tried to keep a 13 year old foster child from having an abortion.

well, shit... all I got was Mr. Miyagi's chopsticks...
