No rightward mobility? I suppose that depends on whether Allen West or John Bolton or both enter the fray. I'm guessing that there is room on the right for expansion. It's just so far off on the right we can't see it from here or even imagine what this far country might look like. I know only one thing about it and that is that uniquely in all the known universe it is the only place where the laws of physics do not operate.

They could collectively go old school musically

Seventy-six hambones led the big parade
With a hundred and ten martinets close at hand.
They were followed by rows and rows of the finest so and
Sos, the cream of all of right wing land!


Great song and it fits. I'd suggest replacing the guitars with a calliope, but that might be a little unsubtle. Another song that might work is The Kinks' 1965 hit 'A Well Respected Man'. Mum sounds something like Barbara:

And his mother goes to meetings,
While his father pulls the maid,
And she stirs the tea with councilors,
While discussing foreign trade,
And she passes looks, as well as bills,
At every suave young man.

'Cause he's oh, so good,
And he's oh, so fine,
And he's oh, so healthy,
In his body and his mind.
He's a well respected man about town,
Doing the best things so conservatively.

Hotlegs' 1970 hit "Neanderthal Man" would work the crowd except for the 'making love' stuff in the lyrics. Too hippie-ish. But that's what editing is for.

He's still going to enter the race? It seems every time he opens his mouth he trips over his own tongue screwing up answers to questions and giving a week long convoluted answer, especially to the one everyone expected him to have an answer for. That one tripped him up the worst of all. He was supposed to be the smart brother? He makes Mitt Romney look more resolute.

He should just wait patiently and let the other candidates speak. As the last primary season demonstrated so completely, speaking is not wise when you are seeking the Republican nomination for the presidency.


Not only is he running, but Vegas odds makers have him closest to Hillary who's a lock at 11/10. Jeb gets you 8/1:
