Worry

aebushOh, lawd, this is going to be a long campaign season.

Jeb Bush — you know, “the smart one” — has been cranking up the family Kennebunkumport Klunker for a leisurely-yet-manly drive to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and despite all evidence to the contrary he claims to be his own man when it comes to foreign policy.

Notes Steve Benen over at The Maddow Blog:

“Everything about Jeb Bush’s national campaign is built on a foundation established by his grandfather, father, and brother — powerful Republicans all. Jeb has spent most of his life exploiting the benefits of his last name to advance his interests, and by appearances, he’s doing it again.”

Ho, ho. This bozo has all the originality of a Lynyrd Skynyrd tribute band rocking Ladies Night at the Desert Inn in Yeehaw Junction, Florida. If you loved President Alfred E. “Worry” Bush, you’re gonna love this guy.

    Plutocrat? Oligarch? Aristocrat? One percenter? What is he anyway?

    It will probably be another Bush and Clinton in the charade we call a primary erection, and Hill will have ole Jeb’s nuts in a pair of Visegrips. Then we get to watch Bill chase interns again.

  2. Libby Says:

    I’m worried.

    Oh. dogshit…

  4. Charley Says:

    Absolutely scary!

  5. David R Says:

    No, this is a very good thing; let this clown run for POTUS. In fact, we should hope he runs. He’ll be eviscerated in ANY debate with someone with even half a brain and then all will see that he is the most emptiest of all the suits in politics.

    • Larry T. Says:

      I’m kinda worried David, as an empty suit didn’t stop Alfred W. Bush from getting enough votes to allow his (or daddy’s) lawyers to get him the keys to the White House, or worse, actually getting elected for real the 2nd time. I’m hoping for some real right-wing nutjob like Cruz or Rubio so even the folks who don’t much care for Billary will get out there and vote just to stop the Rethugs. Maybe Hil’ can put Elizabeth Warren on the ticket as veep?

      • md anderson Says:

        Larry, we need Professor Warren right there in the Senate where she is, for the next 20 years I hope. I would like to see Barry Sanders give it a run in the primary if only to pull Hillary further to the left

      • Patrick O'Grady Says:

        Herself would like to see Senator Professor Warren have a go at Clinton, but I agree with MD: We need her in the Senate, kneecapping eejits. And it would be fun to watch Sanders nipping at Clinton’s heels, though I have doubts about how far anyone could push her to the left without using a Rome plow driven by a Wobbly. Hils is about half a Republican, just like her old man.

      • Larry T. Says:

        I wrote I’d like to see Warren on the ticket as veep. Nobody is going to push Billary very far left in any case but if the Rethugs come up with a scary-enough candidate she can win ({‘ll hold my nose and vote for her) easily. Most importantly SHE can be the one to appoint the next Supremes…..that’s a long-time issue that needs to be fixed – those various Bush-era guys need to be replaced!

    • Patrick O'Grady Says:

      Scott Walker is the guy who worries Charles P. Pierce. Dumb plus mean plus chickenshit plus money — that one’s worked before, que no? What’s not to like?

  6. carl Says:

    I was at that show.Skynyrd rocks!

  7. Dale Says:

    Jeb even has Wolf of Witz and Schlitz as foreign policy advisors. Can you say “war with Iran”?

  8. Jon Paulos Says:

    Well, damn me for a cynic, but I see this playing out the same way as the last one.

    On the Republican side, Jeb will pander to the loony wing to weaken the actual loony candidates like Walker/Cruz/etc., then go to the “establishment” and tell them “Its me or the loonies.” After considerable entertainment he’ll get the nomination, then move to the middle as much as he can.

    Hillary will maintain a low profile while building the organization and war chest, and have her surrogates egg the Republicans on in their civil war.

    When it comes to the election campaign, Jeb will try to paint Hillary as a tax-and-spend liberal, she’ll try to tie him to the loonies (he’ll help this along by picking one of the loonies as his running mate), and it will come down to who’s better at getting out the vote.

    In other words, from four years ago, change “Obama” to “Clinton” and “Romney” to “Bush” and repeat.

    Now of course I could be wrong, but I’ve got a 100 Rupee note in my wallet says I’m right, if anyone wants a piece of it.

    Now about more important matters, any update on the OGWGFIW jerseys? And did Miss Mia get back at the Turk for sharking the perch?

    • Larry T. Says:

      I think you sum things up well, for me the concern is that Junior Bush, Jr. will not be scary enough to motivate voters to show up to vote for the lesser evil, aka Billary. I had the same fears last time with the Romney-bot but that turned out OK, so there’s that.
      One thing’s likely, when they all climb out of the clown car for the Rethug debates, late-night comics will have a field-day with all the goofy quotes!

    • Pat O'Brien Says:

      The really scary thing is that if a reasonable candidate should emerge and get elected by the “hoi polloi” the bought and paid for congress will stonewall them for 4 years as they have done for the last 6 plus years.

    It’s getting worse:

    • Larry T. Says:

      It’ll be fun watching all of ’em climbing out of that tiny clown car! Just when you think everybody’s out, Bobby Jindal will come out of the trunk seconds before Donald Trump rams the thing from behind in his limo, though perhaps he should be the driver of the clown car? Glad as hell I’m not in Iowa at present!

    • Larry T. Says:

      And even worse (funnier?) – John “Yosemite Sam” Bolton and Lindsay “Fainting Couch” Graham are making noises about joining the clown fest!!!
