Behind Closed Doors, JEB! is on the Mitt Romney Bus
This story is definitely worth a read. Apparently, former governor Jerky McLargeHead has been quietly advising political operators to step into the Romney camp.

Perhaps more noteworthy, the story mentions that the George Bushes — both Jeb's father and brother — have been encouraging Jeb to run. He won't, of course. Jeb may be a lot of things, most of them horrific, but one thing he's not is stupid — unlike some other Bushes we could name, eh? Anyway, Jeb's smart enough to know the country suffers from Bush fatigue. Look out for little brother in 2016, though, when he steps from the shadows to "return family values" to the White House after 8 years of Democratic rule, or some such idiocy.
Jeb Bush -- vote smart and mean in 2016!
Oh, small side note -- remember incompetent, negligent Broward County Elections offical Miriam Oliphant? Well, a court finally ruled today that Miriam wasn't intentionally negligent, so she doesn't owe any fines for her breathtakingly stupid time in office.

I'm not sure if Brenda Snipes has been a good replacement for Miriam or not — by comparison, Snipes looks like the most competent elected official this side of ... hmmmm ... tried to come up with an elected official known especially for his/her competence, but couldn't think of one. Anyway, point is, with Miriam as her predecessor, of course Snipes looks good.
