It started with Bill Clinton demeaning the office of the presidency by playing the saxophone on the Arsenio Hall Show.  You know the old saying, imitation is the greatest form of flattery.  Watch the video above to see Jeb Bush join the nitwit brigade on the Jimmy Fallon Show.  I'm sure Jeb's consultants thought this was a way to appeal to 'swing' voters.  I can hear the conversation now.  "Look, Jeb, people, don't care about politics, they care if you're funny on Fallon.  You need to get on the Tonight Show and Slo Jam with the best of them."  Then again, it didn't work out so well for Brian Williams.  I'm sure the Bushies were happy they beat the much younger Senator Marco Rubio and Governor Scott Walker to television's version of the lowest common denominator.

Now I know what you're thinking, 'Kmillie' it's time you got with the times and found a sense of humor.  It's great seeing our politicians performing like stage bumpkins.  What's the harm of having a good laugh at their expense?'  Well, I'm glad you asked, or if you didn't, I'm glad it was one of the many voices in my head.

Bush's Slo Jam sends the wrong message.  Most viewers will think that Bush is appearing human, perhaps even funny.  What the Fallon Followers miss is that everyone from ISIS to the Iranians is watching and evaluating Jeb.  Could you ever imagine the bare-chested Vladimir Putin mocking himself on Russian Television?  Of course not, by hanging with Fallon, Bush has weakened himself in the eyes of the world.

Hopefully, this will be the last time Jeb tries to sing his way to the presidency.  Haven't slo jammed enough with our current celebrity in chief?  We need a fixer not an entertainer in the White House!
