Jeb Bush and the "Pretty Good Deal"

When hearing that Gov. Jeb Bush referred to getting rid of Saddam Hussein as a "pretty good deal", I immediately thought of his mother. Ten years ago, after Hurricane Katrina, she had made staggeringly insensitive comments about the victims:

"Almost everyone I've talked to says: 'We're going to move to Houston,' " Mrs Bush said late on Monday after visiting evacuees at the Astrodome with her husband, former president George Bush.

"What I'm hearing, which is sort of scary, is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality," she said.

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this - this is working very well for them."
It's the same kind of insensitivity--a family resemblance, you could say. Sure, over four thousand US service members lost their lives, tens of thousands were maimed, over three thousand military contractors were killed, and so on, the country of Iraq was completely destabilized and not only was al Qaeda brought there and ISIS born there in what many people have called the worst foreign policy decision ever, but hey, the war got rid of Saddam Hussein so, that's one thing!

Regarding the Iraq War, he's basically wrong on everything. He's wrong about what happened and he's wrong about what he's fixing to do about it. And yes, he's also leaving torture on the table as something he might be all about when he inevitably gets the US enmeshed in an open-ended boot-on-the ground military conflict.

I really don't think Jeb sounds like a "pretty good deal", himself.

Google Carlyle and Bush. You’ll figure out why the Jebster called it “a pretty good deal”.

What's up, Vixen?

Breathtakingly insensitive. And Clinton, unspeakably criminal. Both of them ruthlessly ambitious.

Recklessly incompetent.

(How am I doing? – breathtaking, unspeakable, ruthless, reckless... am I getting the hang of it?)

There's only one way to go, and I know what it is.

Cthulhu fhtagn!

Yes we can!

The stars are right, and it's time to dismiss these lesser politicians and accept the reign of Cthulhu.

With the Order of the Dragon we do not have to be concerned about the separation of church and state. Cthulhu knows, Cthulhu does, and we as supplicants follow. His almighty and embracing tentacles stretch throughout the universe to perfectly integrate all of us under His vast and competent Dominion.

Cthulhu and his relative Hastur must reach detente and embrace raprochement. It is time to bury the tentacle so the peaceful reign can be all-pervading.

Many politicians have published books that have enjoyed high rankings on Amazon.com and the NY Times. I want to remind everyone that Cthulhu was there first with his own point-by point plan in his celebrated work, The Necromonicon.

His grassroots minions are already skulking around political hot spots making their presence known.

It is time for a president with real solutions to the nation's problems. Someone who makes his will known frankly and has no hidden agenda.

Embrace the Old Ones. Do not stay anchored in the wrong side of history. Get rid of your racial and species prejudice. Embrace the possibilities of becoming a transoctopod. It's time for Jenner to have another surgery. Stop being so concerned with blacks and browns, and embrace the true color of gray-green.

Sexual differences mean nothing in the empire of Cthulhu. Finally we will have a sexless being in the White House! No worries about who can marry whom. We will breed at the dispensation of Cthulhu. From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. Everyone will enjoy as much fish as they can possibly get down in a renaissance of Perfect Equality as we all seek the will of the Divine Master.

November 2016. Put an octopod in the White House!

Heh heh-- tired of voting for the lesser of two evils?

Then Dagon-it, try Cthulhu! He's been Dreaming of this for a long time!
