Jeb Bush really wants to be president.
The pundits, however, fear he’s not conservative enough — that he’s too moderate.
That fear is about as legitimate as me fearing my abs are too ripped.
Jeb Bush is a union-busting, school-voucher-promoting, tax-cutting, gun-loving, Terri Schiavo-interfering, hard-core conservative.
What makes Bush different from a lot of the other candidates is that he’s also sane.
And somehow, in our increasingly extreme society, sane is now mistaken for moderate.
Especially when it comes to Republican presidential campaigns.
