The Jebster (aka John Ellis Bush "Jeb" ) is the second son of Poppy (POTUS 41) and The Babster (Barbara Bush); The Jebster is a former governor of Florida. In fact, The Dubster (POTUS 43) owes his landslide victory of 2000 to his younger brother and his incredibly dishonest election officials in the Sunshine State. Now, The Dubster is painting imaginary portraits in Dallas and The Jebster has remained in Florida after leaving the governor's mansion. Some in the Dumbo (sans Moron) wing of the Dumbo party were beating tjeir drums for The Jebster as the Dumbo standard-bearer in 2016. However, The Jebster is married to Columba Garnica Gallo, a native of cenral Mexico and the couple has three Spanish-fluent children: John Ellis Bush, Jr., George Prescott Bush (currently running for Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office), and Noelle Lucila Bush. So, with a Mexican-born wife and three Mestizo children, The Jebster spoke at Poppy's library and museum on the Texas A&M campus earlier this month and said about "illegal immigration" that many who illegally come to the United States do so out of an "act of love" for their families and should be treated differently from people who illegally cross U.S. borders or overstay visas. The anti-immigrant Dumbos/Morons have gone nuts and it would seem that The Jebster's chances for 2016 are slim and none at all. Meanwhile, The Deadline Poet offers a belated word of advice to The Jebster. Finally, even Poppy Bush referred to his three Florida grandchildren, in their childhood, as "my little brown ones." If this is (fair & balanced) familial xenophobia, so be it.

Tag Cloud of the following piece of writing
Jeb Bush’s sympathy for undocumented immigrants is seen as an obstacle in winning the Republican presidential nomination
Unless, some say, Jeb wants to stay
In Florida, with the gators,
He’s going to have to change his tune,
Or else he’ll lose the haters. Ω
