Best new blogger target this week: Jeb Bush declares candidacy for President ...

... only after raising oodles of cash as a non-candidate. But it's all legal. Onward.

CNN commentators kept repeating the line: Jeb Bush needs to get "fire in the belly." Scriber will treat him to a plate of chipotles and habaneros when he stumps in crAZy.

What his audience said: "Jeb, Jeb, Jeb." What Jeb said: "Fox, Fox, Fox." Kidding aside (for the moment). His speech read like something conjured by ALEC and the Tea Potty. Educational standards? We don't need no stinkin' standards. Leave it up to the parents to put their kids in a private school. He addressed Latinos in Spanish. But then he turned around and said he would get Congress to act on immigration reform and ditch Obama's executive order. Congress? You recall - those people who really care for DREAMers. But Jeb convinced me of one thing: so far he has swung further right than any of the other clowns in that car.

Here is a report on the discovery of a "failure" gene based on a study of two generations of a well-known political family. (From Andy Borowitz at The New Yorker.)
