The Jebster needs to lose some weight: 189.75 lbs. of older brother. The Jebster isn't running for president as much as he is running away from the legacy of his dumbass sibling. The Deadline Poet and today's guest 'toonist have nailed The Jebster's dilemma: how to remove the deadly stain of a failed presidency (POTUS 43). If this is a (fair & balanced) political burden, so be it.

A Shaky Start For Jeb Bush
By The Deadline Poet (Calvin Trillin)
Tag Cloud of the following piece of writing
“He has been torn between defending and distancing himself
from George W. Bush.”
—The New York Times
Jeb’s path was thought an easy stroll,
But George has made it steeper.
So Jeb is likely asking now,
“Am I my brother’s keeper?” Ω
