Have you seen Jeb Bush’s 2016 Logo?
That was my version. Apparently it got rejected.
No. Here’s the real one. Jeb unveiled it yesterday on Twitter:
Yes siree, folks. Jeb Bush hired a landscaper to come in and yank out that invasive, tired old bush that was making his candidacy look so yesterday. My guess is, his people hope that by marketing Jeb sans the last name will help sell him to voters who have no idea he is related to George W.
Which, come to think of it, are the exact same voters Hillary is hoping to sway.
I call them the “I live under a rock and have no clue about anything” constituency.
Just like Hillary is hoping to convince them that she is a likable, charming, approachable problem-solver with a new vision for America and not the shrill, vindictive bitch who’s married to Bill, Jeb is hoping to convince them that he’s just plain Jeb! with no last name. You know. Like Cher. Or Madonna. Or Shakira.
Either that, or the exclamation point is supposed to fire people up. Get them excited over this dull, dud of a candidate.
Frankly, I think that’s a tall order for any punctuation mark.
I don’t know. Call me cynical. But removing the family name and replacing it with an exclamation point doesn’t erase the fact that Jeb Bush is a Bush. Hell, he’s relying on his family name to help him sail into the White House the same way Hillary is banking on her lady-parts.
This notion that Americans are going to forget Jeb’s last name seems about as unlikely as Americans forgetting that Hillary is a dried-up old hag who has nothing to offer the nation but her own hubris.
So, sorry, Jeb!
I’m not sold.
