Jeb's America

[Content Note: Guns. Image of handgun at first link.]

Jeb Bush continues to be an unmitigated disaster.

Yesterday, he tweeted a photo of a handgun which had been engraved with "Gov. Jeb Bush" and captioned it, simply, "America."

I don't know what he was going for with that shit, but it certainly read less celebratory than menacing to me.

I was definitely not alone in that assessment. Possibly because lots of us are less likely to own and wield a gun than we are to be (or to have already been) threatened by one.

I don't even know where to begin with this guy. Suffice it to say, if his vision of "America" is an engraved gun, our visions of the US are vastly different.
