Bush 'Chang' gang unleashed

Maybe it's a family thing: In a 1989 Washington Post article on the politics of tennis, former President George Bush was quoted as threatening to "unleash Chang" as a means of intimidating other players.

And here are Jeb! Bush's words, spoken last week before hundreds of lawmakers and politicians in Tallahassee:

"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."
Hours later, Jeb! was reminded of society's underpinnings when he was forced to invoke Chang's mystical sword yet again, this time to unleash Jeb!'s namesake, John Ellis Bush, from a Texas jailhouse.

Unbelievable, you say? Nope, just more of the Bush ole-time family values...
