Jeb Bush's 'Mystical Warrior' friend
How did it become a good idea for an incumbent governor to unleash a mystical warrior friend on congress? Either way, if this really is true shouldn't we be somewhat impressed that his inner conservative appears to be a Chinese-American? I mean, it could've been, I don't know, Reese Witherspoon or something...
From Nico: "Last week, after 'more than an hour of solemn ceremony' swearing in Rep. Marco Rubio (R-FL) as House speaker, Gov. Jeb Bush stepped to the podium to tell Ã¢â‚¬Ëœa short story about 'unleashing Chang,' his 'mystical warrior' friend."
Below, courtesy of the Gainesville Sun, are BushÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s words, Ã¢â‚¬Ëœspoken before hundreds of lawmakers and politiciansÃ¢â‚¬â„¢:
"Ã¢â‚¬ËœChang 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."
Bush then unsheathed a golden sword and gave it to Rubio as a gift.
"'I'm going to bestow to you the sword of a great conservative warrior,' he said, as the crowd roared."(ThinkProgress)
