Chang is a mystical warrior. Chang is somebody who believes in conservative principles, believes in entrepreneurial capitalism, believes in moral values that underpin a free society. I rely on Chang with great regularity in my public life. He has been by my side and sometimes I let him down. But Chang, this mystical warrior, has never let me down. [Then, unsheathing a gold (and presumably phallic) sword, which he gave to Rubio, he added:] I'm going to bestow to you the sword of a great conservative warrior.While this is all a reference to Jeb's dad's foray into eastern mysticism years ago (Chang means elephant in Thai, and the 1927 film Chang, set in the jungles of northern Siam, was a precursor to King Kong), I wonder if the Florida governor knows the other Thai translation? Chang is often used by moms, combined with the Thai word for "little" (Chang noi), to describe a young boy's penis.
