And This One's For Jeb!

As Jeb! folds gracefully back into the wing-back chair of the elite country club that you couldn't ever hope to join in a million years night we, here at Team LSP, think it only right to play his song, maybe for the last time. And if you notice any disharmony, or lack of energy, well, so be it.

Goodnight, Jeb!, you were awesome, except that you weren't.

Yes, Jeb! is going to pour himself one more Singapore Sling tonight before he nods off and flies back to Florida in the family jet in the morning. There will be a lot of well wishers dropping by the country club - and the refrain will go something like this, "Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these, 'It might have been.'"

He felt entitled, he brought his brother (Bush 43) and his mother to lecture people on how entitled he was to be our leader. And in a stadium that held 6,000 people, just under 4,000 showed up to meet his brother. While Trump fills 30,000 seat stadiums with people standing outside because they didn't arrive early enough to find a seat.

The donors that blew $150 million are scratching their heads and wondering where to put their money to buy influence in the new America.

It's odd, I think, how Whittier sounds a bit like Kipling, but hey, $150 million on Jeb!?

Shocking waste of money.

I am exceptionally pleased that GOP voters finally get what I have been shouting from the mountain tops since George H.W. Bush attacked Ronald Reagan's economic views as 'voodoo economics.' The Bush way of getting things done is not good for conservatives.

The Bush family has been a disappointment. They have always had a tendency to spend tax payer money like drunken sailors on Democrat ideas. No, they didn't come up with those liberal programs, they just compromised with the liberals into spending perhaps half of what Dems wanted initially.

That is no way to govern. The end of the Bush dynasty could not come too soon. Finally, the Bush influence will recede into the night.

It is a good day for America.

I don't get it. The guy's worth about 20 million dollars. Why in hell would he want to be president? I'd much rather sit on the veranda and sip an ice cold mai tai. Besides, since I'm a bit OCD, if he was president I'd always be wanting to reach out and straighten his slightly crossed eye.

Speaking of waste of money - how about the new Viking stadium in Minneapolis? One billion dollars to build the monstrosity and it leaks. 4 million to fix the leak. All this for football games that the average Joe can't afford to go to.

I was distinctly underwhelmed by Jeb!, Fredd... well, now he can go back to the country club and drink a consoling bottle of $200 wine.

Good eye point, Adrienne. And a $billion? Bread and Circuses spring to mind.
