Loin derrière

I feel somewhat bad for Jeb! He dropped his last name to avoid association with his dumberer brother. He raised millions of dollars from hardworking, big Republican funders. He renounced his only serious policy idea (the Common Core) so that he would be more appealing to the anti-intellectual Republican base. All this should have secured an easy victory over pipsqueaks like Jindal, Huckabee, Paul, Cruz, and Rubio.

Instead, he’s been ambushed by a real estate clown and a retired surgeon who hocks quacksterish supplements.

It’s sad to see one of the last remaining hippie habitats (Haight Ashbury) under threat from market-driven environmental encroachment.

Puritanism is why we can’t have nice things.
