¡JEB! the Smartest Bush®

¡JEB! the Smartest Bush®

He’s threatening us:

“I can promise you it will happen in the next presidency — there will be a conflict, there will be an attack, there might be an outbreak of a disease. Something is going to happen. … 9/11 is an example of that,” Bush said before the Rotary Club of Nashua.

You mean like the last time a Bush was preznint? Babs-the-Impaler is starting to look at entrails and muttering curses under her breath at the fruit of her loins.

The Evening Quote

"My braces are too tight."

“My braces are too tight.”

“Not just that debate, but every debate before it, I’ve shown consistently the ability to answer important and difficult questions I think in a very compelling way.

“We raised more money after this debate than any debate we’ve ever had and we’re excited about it. And there’s a reason they attacked me more than anyone else.”

That’s what they’re excited about?

Some Fries With Your Stupid, Ted?

I think that they’re onto something:

Yes, some New Hampshire voters tried to perform an exorcism on Ted Cruz, saying that there was an evil spirit in him (and that was why Cruz is so ugly, too) but Beelezebub didn’t flee the body.

If the evangelicals continue to hold ad hoc exorcisms on Cruz, I’m all for it.

The Morning Quote

Yuuge wall.

Yuuge wall.

I’ve been wondering why we never hear any reaction from Mexico about ‘Vanilla Isis’ Trump’s boast that he will build a wall on our southern border and Mexico will pay for it:

“We are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall! And it’s going to be completely useless,” said former Mexican president Felipe Calderón when asked about this at the AmCham Egypt for Business Conference on Sunday.

“The first loser of such a policy would be the United States,” he added. “If this guy pretends that closing the borders to anywhere either for trade [or] for people is going to provide prosperity to the United States, he is completely crazy.”

It’s also worth noting that more Mexicans are LEAVING the United States than entering it. It’s a net loss already.

Rubio to ¡JEB!: ‘Your Mother Wears…’

“…the crown jewels?”

Careful young padawan, Babs-the-Impaler has a pike with your name on it.

But isn’t this just bizarre? Oh, that’s Henry the 8th (I Am), and the Burger King filling in for Poppy and Chimpy.

You Can Say That Again!

"This notion that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing is just not true. He knows exactly what he's doing."

“This notion that Barack Obama doesn’t know what he’s doing is just not true. He knows exactly what he’s doing.”

Good lord, whatever the virus is that’s attacking Rubio’s speech-like synthesis AI programming is still running. Today’s example is the interview from the Sunday Talkies: The Marco Mechanism repeats his now infamous talking point three more times:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Democrats are circulating that video from last night, Senator Marco Rubio joins us live right now. What went wrong?

RUBIO: Well, actually, I would pay them to keep running that clip because that’s what I believe passionately. It’s one of the reasons why I’m not running for reelection to the Senate and I’m running for president. This notion and this idea that somehow, oh, this is an accident — ObamaCare was not an accident. Dodd-Frank was not an accident. The deal with Iran was not an accident —

STEPHANOPOULOS: But you’re getting pounded for repeating that speech.

RUBIO: Well, look, we raised more money last night in the first hour that debate than any other debate. As far as that message, I hope they keep running it and I’m going to keep saying because it’s true. Barack Obama — yes, has he hired incompetent people to implement laws and run agencies? Absolutely. But when it comes to the — what he’s trying to do to America, it’s part of a plan. He has said he wanted to change the country; he’s doing it in a way that is robbing us of everything that makes us special. I’m going to keep saying that because that not only is it the truth, it is at the core of our —

STEPHANOPOULOS: But even after Chris Christie called you out for what he called canned speeches, 25-second canned speeches, you repeated again, he says, there you go again. That was not a good moment for you, was it?

RUBIO: It’s what I believe. And it’s what I’m going to continue to say because it happens to be one of the main reasons why I am running. I — this is the greatest country in the history of mankind because of a certain set of principles. Barack Obama wants us to abandon those principles that he has spent seven years putting in place policies that rip them from us: undermining the Constitution, undermining free enterprise, undermining our standing in the world, weakening America, apologizing for us on the global stage. The reason why I’m running is if we elect someone like that for the next four years, I think it may be too late for American to turn around.

The Marco mal-wear seems to be build upon an endless loop. It’s going to use up all his RAM.

Let Them Eat Cake (Happy Hour News Briefs)

News That Will Drive You To Drink

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder threw his wife Sue a birthday party at the West End Grill last week, and this cake, designed by Heather Anne Leavitt, was one of the stars of the evening. (courtesy photo)

Man, talk about being tone deaf:

Heather Anne Leavitt, the cake designer and proprietress behind Ann Arbor’s boutique cakery, Sweet Heather Anne, makes a lot of high-end, super-detailed cakes, so she didn’t blink when a woman met with her to place an order for an expensive cake to be delivered to The West End Grill for a private party.

She didn’t find out until she and her assistant delivered the cake to the upscale Ann Arbor restaurant that the cake was to be one of the centerpieces of a birthday celebration that Governor Rick Snyder was throwing for his wife, Sue.

If this were the movie Se7en, Kevin Spacey would find the appropriate punishment for infamous Flint water poisoner Gov. Snyder and his wife. But until then, decent people should point at them, turn their backs, and shun them wherever they go for the rest of their lives.
