The Smart Bush


Chimpy’s brother Not Chimpy might be thinking about running for preznint in the 2016 Goat Rodeo, or he might be thinking about pie. Pie is nice, running for office is not.

Anyway, Not Chimpy was asked about the Paycheck Fairness Act, and because he might be thinking about the 2016 Goat Rodeo he responded brilliantly with, “What is the Paycheck Fairness Act?”

Once the man he was speaking with defined it as a bill that would help women receive “equal pay for equal work,” Bush took issue with his phrasing.

“Equal pay for the same work, not for equal work — I think that’s the problem with it. I think there’s a definition issue.”

Nicely dodged! But if you really are thinking about running in the 2016 Goat Rodeo, maybe you might want to learn-up on some of the issues?

I worry about the Rebranding, Reince, I really do.

Here’s Some Stupid For Your Coffee

Jenna's gonna puke!

…and by stupid, we mean McStagger-level stupid:

George W. Bush’s daughter Jenna is one of the better-known names on the Independence Party’s voter rolls in New York.

But she never meant to join.

Like financial reporter Maria Bartiromo and News Corp. boss Rupert Murdoch before her, Jenna Bush Hager mistakenly signed up with the Independence Party when she meant to declare herself an independent.

Well, she comes by it honestly.

Chimpy done wrote a book, again!

Chimpy BarfingFor those of you who thought Dubya was illiterate (“Not so. Mah parents were married! And t’ each other!”) think again, because Crown books will publish his biography of his father George H.W. Bush:

According to Crown, the book will cover the elder Bush’s whole life and his influence on his son, from George W.’s “childhood in West Texas to his early campaign trips with his father, and from his decision to go into politics to his own two-term presidency.”

The book will be “heartfelt, intimate, and illuminating,” Crown publisher Maya Mavjee said in a statement.

The book will be about 300 pages long (wide margins? Double-spaced lines?) and W done wrote it all by his lonesome, with a fresh pencil ‘n everything. Hopefully it will cover the famous drunken fistfight challenge with Poppy and be named something like, Everything I Ever Wanted To Know About Invading Iraq But Was Afraid To Ask.

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.

My Left Foot

Oh, honest-to-blog, Chimpy McStagger is going to have an exhibition of his finger-painting at his Texas liberry, and NBC is promoting it with a hard-hitting interview with his daughter, Jenna.

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.

The feel-good read of the day

Jonathan Chait at the NYMag: Yes, George W. Bush Was a Terrible President, and No, He Wasn’t Smart

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.
