Good question!

If you think former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is just THE BESTEST Republican candidate that has ever candidated in the history of candidates, please check this box: □

And if you noticed something a little weird about that mailer, like the fact that Bush appears to have one white hand and one black hand, please check THIS box: □

Don't worry! It was only sent out to 86,000 Iowa households, so no biggie.

And if you're some sort of ASSHOLE who thinks that is obviously Jeb Bush's head photoshopped onto another man's body and standing in front of a stock photo of Iowa, then check yourself, because it was just some lady casting a shadow on Jeb's hand. I BET YOU FEEL SILLY NOW, DON'T YOU!

In other "Jeb Bush is just a terrific candidate and should definitely be elected" news, after being criticized for using the term "anchor babies" in discussions of immigration, Bush said, "Give me another word [and I'll use it]." Haha he's so great! Hillary Clinton had some suggestions for him:

Meanwhile, Gold Toilet Aficionado Donald Trump continues to parade around as though he's a supermodel for Horrendo Specimens of Humanity magazine, welcoming Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly back from vacation with more misogyny and being a full-tilt bigot on immigration.

Senator Bernie Sanders was asked what he thought of Trump, to which Sanders replied, "Not much," hahahaha, and was then asked for comment on Trump's immigration proposal (such as it is): "I think Donald Trump's views on immigration and his slurring of the Latino community is not something that should be going on in the year 2015. And it's to me an embarrassment for our country." Indeed.

As you may have heard once or twice or eleventy million times over the past few days, Vice President Joe Biden is seriously considering a run for president. (No shit!) And he met with Senator Elizabeth Warren, which can obviously only mean one thing:

And that headline is from the National Review Online, so you KNOW it's true! I mean, who would have a better inline to insider Democratic info than a conservative rag that is wrong about almost everything ever?!

In other news, lots of other men are still running for president. And Carly Fiorina. Who probably has some terrific things to tell you about how terrible Hillary Clinton is.

Talk about these things! Or don't. Whatever makes you happy. Life is short.
