This is too weird to make up. Jeb Bush has an imaginary friend. Gainesville Sun:
Here are Bush’s words, spoken before hundreds of lawmakers and politicians: ”Chang is a mystical warrior. Chang is somebody who believes in conservative principles, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism, believes in moral values that underpin a free society.
”I rely on Chang with great regularity in my public life. He has been by my side and sometimes I let him down. But Chang, this mystical warrior, has never let me down.”
It’s a scary place inside Jeb Bush’s head. This insight into his twisted psyche explains a lot.
In a 1989 Washington Post article on the politics of tennis, former President George Bush was quoted as threatening to ”unleash Chang” as a means of intimidating other players.
The saying was apparently quite popular with Gov. Bush’s father, and referred to a legendary warrior named Chang who was called upon to settle political disputes in Chinese dynasties of yore.
O.K. then. I’ve heard enough. How did these freaks of nature get here? And when will they be leaving?
