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.''
Bush then unsheathed a golden sword and gave it to Rubio as a gift.
''I'm going to bestow to you the sword of a great conservative warrior,'' he said, as the crowd roared.
So when Jeb runs for Georgie's job in 2008, do you think he'll officially nominate Chang as his VP? It'd be the first Asian-born imaginary friend VP in US history, another Bush first!
Do you think Jebby, Jr., Jeb's "little brown son" as Pappy Bush called him, was "unleashing Chang" when he was caught in a parking lot with "a 17-year-old female companion fogging the car's windows and both were naked from the waist down, save Jebby's socks"?
Jebby was definitely "unleashing Chang" last week when he resisted arrest while drunk. The Daily News provides details:
John (Jebby) Bush, 21, allegedly wobbled up to Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission agents and Austin police on duty in the city's downtown entertainment district and started questioning them about the earlier arrests of some people he knew.
Bush was drunk and "he was observed to be a danger to himself and others," said TABC Capt. David Ferrero - so he was arrested too.
An arrest affidavit said Bush continually pushed against a TABC officer who was trying to handcuff him. "Subject further resisted by pushing back with his body as he was restrained at the [Austin PD] transport van," it said.
Jebby is clearly priming himself for Uncle Georgie's job.
