Poor Jeb No-Last-Name. he thought his shot at the presidency was a lock; after all, his Daddy was president, though all anyone remembers of him is that he famously said, ‘Read my lips, no new taxes,’ and then raised taxes.
Then Jeb’s brother was president and led us into a war for oil with no end, and one of the worst economic crises to hit this country in decades.
So yeah, Jeb no-Last-Name had a tough road. He declared his candidacy long before he wanted — some say it was due to his raising boatloads of cash for his presidential candidate exploration committee, a violation of FEC rules — and he started strong, but then the Crazies came out—[t]Rump and the Brainless Surgeon, and suddenly Jeb was forced to take his last name off his ads and his signs; suddenly Jeb looked like the biggest fool of the GOP; suddenly it really was “Jeb, who?”
So what does one do when their product fails? Well, you reboot. And that’s what Jeb! is doing now. With step one being a new campaign slogan:
"Jeb Can Fix It."
And he started this reboot off with telling the story of how he used to allow his constituents in Florida to email him at his personal email address, and he shared the story of how he "fixed" one resident's problem of having a raccoon in their house. So, wait, he wants to be Exterminator-In-Chief?
“Jeb Can Fix Your Pest Problem.”
And yet he cannot fix his own pest issues … you know, [t]Rump. But Twitter rolled with riffs on Jeb “fixing” it:
How can we expect Jeb to fix whatever he believes is wrong with this country when he cannot even fix his own campaign?
Still, that idea for an HGTV show … ?
