And he’s supposed to be the smart one?


Bush crime family macrocephalic exhibit A Not Chimpy, er, I mean Jeb stepped in it again. And he’s supposed to be the smart one?

Take it away, Tiger Beat on the Potomac:

On immigration, he said that those who come into the country illegally generally do so because they had no other means to provide for their family, and what they did is “not a felony.”

“It’s an act of love. It’s an act of commitment to your family,” Bush said. “I honestly think that that is a different kind of crime. There should be a price paid, but it shouldn’t rile people up that people are actually coming to this country to provide for their families.”

OK, I just threw up a little in the back of my mouth when the words “Jeb Bush” and “Act of Love” co-mingled on my screen.

Anyway, the primaries are when Wingnuttia look for purity (which in this instance involves electrifying a thousand mile border fence, with a moat and alligators, and gattling guns every 10 feet to keep out the dusky menace; Canadians please accept our welcome wagon), love action comes in the general, Jeb.

Whoops, threw-up a little again.

I thought Babs-the-Impaler was probably getting take-out


From the Tiger Beat on the Potomac email thingie (thanks Charlie!) that I usually throw away:

MRS. BARBARA BUSH HOSPITALIZED: “HOUSTON — Following is a statement by the Office of George H. W. Bush on the hospitalization of former First Lady Barbara Bush: ‘Former First Lady Barbara Bush was admitted to Methodist Hospital in Houston’s Texas Medical Center yesterday for treatment on a respiratory related issue. She is in great spirits, has already received visits from her husband and family, and is receiving fantastic care. Updates will be issued when warranted.'”

Good News! Americans Are Evolving and the GOP Isn’t!


Belief in evolution among Republicans has dropped more than 10 percentage points since 2009, according to a new poll by the Pew Research Center.

And I suppose after 8 long years of Chimpy McStagger, the Republicans might have a point. (Livewire)

In honor of the Chimpy McStagger pop-up book-a-palooza…

…we offer this reprise showing:

UPDATE: Great minds think alike: One of the Internet Blogger Hall-o-Fame greatest stylists and a personal hero of mine, Jurassic Pork also is calling Chimpy’s Lieberry a collection of pop-up books. Also, too: What JP Said.

Irony’s not dead, it’s laughing

George W. Bush Library Set to Open at SMU

The Chimpy McStagger reading room…”will preserve for history the important decisions made by President Bush during his presidency and will embody and carry on the values of President and Mrs. Bush.”

I think that’s a long-winded way of saying that there will be an open bar and a pharmacy.

The Full Ginsberg…

…will be awarded to The Smart Bush–you know, the Bush married to the tax evader, with the addict daughter, the anger-management son, and the other son noted for underaged public sex– who will be on all the Sunday Talkies.

Hasn’t Bush crime family done enough to us?

The only Bush I ever liked has left the building

Barney has gone:

Laura and I are sad to announce that our Scottish Terrier, Barney, has passed away. The little fellow had been suffering from lymphoma and after twelve and a half years of life, his body could not fight off the illness.
Barney and I enjoyed the outdoors. He loved to accompany me when I fished for bass at the ranch. He was a fierce armadillo hunter. At Camp David, his favorite activity was chasing golf balls on the chipping green.

Barney guarded the South Lawn entrance of the White House as if he were a Secret Service agent. He wandered the halls of the West Wing looking for treats from his many friends. He starred in Barney Cam and gave the American people Christmas tours of the White House. Barney greeted Queens, Heads of State, and Prime Ministers. He was always polite and never jumped in their laps.

Barney was by my side during our eight years in the White House. He never discussed politics and was always a faithful friend. Laura and I will miss our pal.

My condolences to the Bush family.
