Conservative Nonprofit Awards Jeb Bush $250,000 Genius Grant

News

Hey, he can finally move out of that cardboard box!Mazel tov to Jeb Besh, who will be awarded a "Bradley Prize" next month from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, a Wisconsin-based conservative charity that likes to shovel out grant money to the neediest people of all, like Bill Bennett and Antonin Scalia. A Bradley Prize is basically a suitcase of $250,000 this nonprofit hands out to rich conservatives it likes every year on stage at the Kennedy Center. Yes, that's the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. So passing Jeb Bush a quarter-million dollar check must just be an art performance of some kind that is beyond our ability to appreciate.


"Governor Bush has been at the forefront of education reform," said Michael W. Grebe, president and chief executive officer of the Bradley Foundation. "During his administration and since, Florida students have made incredible gains. He has also been a vocal advocate for school choice."

Writes Wonkette operative "Steven G.":

Seriously, couldn't they have given him a plaque and donated the prize money to some actual poor kids in Florida for their education? Oh, never mind.

Privatizing education is what's important, not educating kids, silly!

The Bradley Foundation hopes the money will help Jeb Bush continue to be a guy who once did something they liked. It's tough work and very expensive being somebody who once had an impact on public policy, so we're sure Bush will put this money to good use. If there's one thing his poor family needs, it's handouts from a charity. And if they have to murder a few hundred thou to get it, who cares? [Bradley Foundation]

Well, lordy Jesus, that was 10 minutes of our life we're never going to get back.

A few minutes ago, all the reporters on Twitter started saying, "Um, we are getting called to the Rose Garden and we don't know why." Democrats were supposed to be meeting with Trump about Infrastructure Week, but instead, this was happening:

Hooray! There was a sign in the Rose Garden! It said how big the Mueller Investigation was! And most importantly the Mueller Investigation said NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION, PREZNIT TRUMP GOOD, NOT A RUSSIAN.

Alex Díaz de la Portilla on Facebook

Alex Díaz de la Portilla, former Florida Republican state senator, is in hot water over a leaked WhatsApp chat log that appears to show campaign workers chatting about destroying or disappearing absentee ballots filled out for the candidate's opponent in the nonpartisan county election, according to the Miami New Times. Díaz de la Portilla ultimately came in third in the May 2018 special election for a seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission, so even if some of his people did deep-six some ballots, it didn't apparently help him. Clearly, these pikers could have learned a lot from the experts in North Carolina about electoral fuckery.

Still, you have to appreciate just how brilliantly Díaz de la Portilla plays the role of a local pol accused of just a teensy bit of ratfucking.
