    Desperation, fear and loathing stalk Republican land.

    I can see the campaign slogan right now:

    Bush for President: Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad.

    Slow news day.

  4. Gold Star for Robot Boy says:

    Jeb would be interesting. Very, very smart man. But I understand his wife doesn’t want to be First Lady. Also, I’m not sure he wants to put daughter Nicole through the media wringer.

  5. Gold Star for Robot Boy says:

    Also, if there is a brokered GOP convention, I anticipate serious violence within the convention hall. Not joking.

    @Gold Star for Robot Boy: I expect a lot of people to bring umbrellas. Deflecting thrown food, cellphones, etc.
