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