After more than an hour of solemn ceremony naming Rep. Marco Rubio, R-West Miami, as the 2007-08 House speaker, Gov. Jeb Bush stepped to the podium in the House chamber last week and told a short story about “unleashing Chang,” his “mystical warrior” friend.
Here are Bush’s words, spoken before hundreds of lawmakers and politicians:
“Chang 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.”

What strange bastards. Does having a warrior mate spirit running about with one get one into sacriliege within Christianity? Obviously, there’s no big public backlash, so I guess people are humoring him. Ah well. Too bad he won’t invoke his actual friggin Messiah, and get some introduction to the fact that loving one’s neighbors can’t happen if you’re busy waving a sword around.

Maybe Chang and his golden sword can help him keep his kids off the drugs. Or maybe Chang is the reason his kids are on the drugs?
At least those Bush boys are never boring. Scmucks.

Just goes to show, the coke-snorting, drug-smuggling, alcoholic oil-men are into the occult, too? Figures!
