Jeb Scraps His Glasses
A Reverse Perry
Four-eyes no more! Jeb ditched his frames for contacts.
ABC News reported:
While in Florida in November, he told an audience of all the advice he’s gotten. “Some is stylistic. Take off the suit coat. Ditch the glasses. Get rid of the purple striped tie,” he said, adding, “I can’t be something I’m not.”
Lately, he’s taken to not wearing his glasses during remote interviews, telling this reporter before a “Good Morning America” interview that he does so when he doesn’t have to see.
But now, as the South Carolina primary nears, Bush has taken it a step further, telling reporters today that he’s done the unthinkable (at least in our minds) and gotten contacts.
“I’m wearing them, I got home yesterday for the first time in three weeks, two-and-a-half weeks, and went to uh, the eye doctor and got a haircut. Big news in the Bush campaign,” he said, smiling.
After the gaggle was done — he had announced that his mother would be joining him on the trail on Thursday — he looked around.
“Hey Candace, you know … I just thought that was a joke … wherever you are,” he said.
I was standing right in front of him.
“See!” he exclaimed. “I can’t see.”
Naturally, Trump had something to say about Jeb’s latest look:
Jeb Bush just got contact lenses and got rid of the glasses. He wants to look cool, but it's far too late. 1% in Nevada!

And in case you’re wondering, yes, it is a slow news day.

So, he’s ditched the glasses, for whatever reason his handlers have rationalized is a good reason at this juncture.
(Sounds like he said he went to the eye doctor and got a haircut.)
On the heels of this:
“Jeb raises his hand when Lindsey Graham asks his audience: ‘How many of you are Democrats?’ ”
Pathetic, just pathetic.
Apparently he ditched his earring aid as well. (Or he finally put one in.)
Why’s this important when you ignored his weight loss and neck lift.
He’s ditched the glasses?
That’ll do it for sure.
Finally, the winning formula.
No more “We’re No. 5, We’re No. 5” at the Jeb! rallies.
You just made me choke on my lunch!! Burst right out laughing!
Is it just me, or does he look like someone you would tell your children to avoid?
No, not really. Those two dropped out of the race a few weeks ago.
Considering that Apple is having a big fight with a judge about installing backdoors in iPhones it is not that slow a day.
Yeah, big-government authoritarian statist Trump is fully on board with the Obama administration forcing private companies to install backdoors to spy on citizens, plus Cruz has called Trump’s bluff on the whole “I SUE U” trumpertantrum… I’d say we’ve got two pretty big news stories right there.
Trump has adopted an ancient rock song for his campaign: “Run Around, Sue”.
He could go full Bruce Jenner. Who cares?
Bless his heart. Does no one have the heart to tell him that this whole Jeb! thing just isn’t going to happen?
They need to change “Jeb!” to “Jeb?”
I have the mental image of him squinting trying to figure out if he recognizes that person over there…
Still 5th in the Republican primary, but he DID jump 3 spots in the Tom Brokaw lookalike contest!
He is ahead of Lindsay Graham.
A start, but he really needs to just scrap his campaign.
