Aaannnddd, They're Off — Really Off

This blog's poet-in-residence — The Deadline Poet — trains his beady eye on The Jebster as the self-proclaimed front-runner in the Dumbo sweepstakes. Actually, The Jebster is so far behind, he thinks he's in first place. If this is a (fair & balanced) tale told by idiots — signifying nothing, so be it.

Bush As Bigfoot
By The Deadline Poet (Calvin Trillin)

“Bush’s considerable assets so far have done little to reshape
the early polls or keep others out of the race. If anything,
it’s the opposite.”            —The Washington Post

When Jeb’s bid was starting to kindle,
The field was predicted to dwindle.
Now most pols agree:
How tough can he be?
He can’t even scare Bobby Jindal. Ω
