The Devolution of Jeb(!) Bush

Exclamation point.

Hollow point

What's the point?


You're hot stuff with a hatpin,
And good fun with a hand gun.
You're nearly a laugh,
You're nearly a laugh
But you're really a cry.

Maybe this is Jeb! overcompensating for hiding behind his mommy in the debate.

Maybe John Ellis Bush plans to go out in a blaze of glory instead of all alone.

I think Jeb(?) is doing a sad and very unfunny self-parody at this point. He may stay in the race even if he gets 5th place again but at some point, someone's going to need to take him aside and point out the "Kick Me" signed pinned to the back of his shirt.

I may need to revise my estimation of the foulness of our system toward a slightly lesser degree of corruption than I had imagined.

I have sometimes entertained the thought that Jeb's dad's old pals in a Certain Interesting Agency would find a scandal, or else manufacture one if needed, which would force Trump out of the race.

Failing that, I have even entertained the thought Trump might suffer a "tragic accident" or meet an "armed lone nut".

Holy Haruhi, could I have been too pessimistic for once?

I don't know guns from Shinola, but apparently the gun is Belgian-made.

Unknown said...

Ehh, Belgian company, US factory.

Frist thing popped into my head was "Jebby's got a gun..."

I don't know what he meant by it - and everything I can think of is weird and bad.
Though I do think the appropriate responding tweet would be "You got a permit for that, buddy?"

Paul Donahue said...

It was pointed out in another popular venue that the safety on the gun is off, though in Jeb(!)'s defense it was never on.

Habitat Vic said...

Though the safety is off, there is no bullet in the chamber. If there was a round chambered, a little red colored indicator would pop up and be visible in the slot just behind the extractor (up and to the right in the Twitter picture). The gun is an FNP, either -9, -40, or -45 model depending upon caliber. Yes, made by a Belgian company (Fabrique National) in their US factory - needed so they can supply military weapons to US military - such as the M249 SAW.

I'm not defending Jeb(!), nor am I a gun nut. Got a few in my family and/or that I grew up with, however.

Robt said...

Jeb! is well aware of Florida "stand your Ground Law".

Will Jeb feel threatened? Will he fear for his political life and stand his ground with Trump?

Yes, they will be in Florida before long.

Which makes me ask,

Why hasn't all the GOP candidate concealed carry on the debate stage?

And whip it out in front of everyone?

"Trump twirls gun on debate stage, accidental discharge. Shoot Cruz in leg. Cruz taken to hospital and. The moderator reports Cruz;s injuries are not connsidered life threatening.

No rounds have every gone through that piece. An unused gun, a showpiece. It's an apt metaphor for Jebbers.
