Nutty things Jeb Bush is trying to bring life to his dead campaign


We all know that Jeb Bush's campaign is failing. No news there. But what you don't know about are the nutty things Jeb is doing to try to revive his campaign. Let's look at a few:

1) Desperately pining for an endorsement... from Lindsey Graham.

Throughout the campaign, Mr. Bush had made a point of texting Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina weekly, just to check in. On the morning Mr. Graham dropped out of the race for president, Mr. Bush was ready with the hard sell.

Mr. Bush immediately sent him a message, and the two men spoke on the phone later that day, when Mr. Bush made his pitch — that he was the best prepared to be commander in chief and the most qualified on Mr. Graham’s main issue, national security.

Mr. Graham has publicly said he has no plans to endorse anyone right now. Many believe that privately, however, he is strongly leaning toward Mr. Bush, but that he does not want to support him unless he thinks Mr. Bush can actually win the nomination.

Ok, which is odder: Jeb Bush expending energy and time trying to get the support of a former candidate who has no support, or a former candidate who dropped out because he had no support worrying that endorsing a losing candidate might make him look weak?

The Times article said Bush wanted to "woo" Lindsey. I hope that was not literal.

2) Saying weird things about Donald Trump:

“He wakes up in his pajamas and watches the TV shows on Saturday and Sunday,” Mr. Bush said Monday, at a Cuban restaurant in Hialeah. “Donald Trump is not serious about being a candidate.”

Huh?

3) Finishing fifth in Iowa:

In Iowa, Mr. Bush has two main goals: to finish no lower than fifth (third place is the optimistic goal) and, more important, to beat Mr. Christie.

Finishing fifth is a goal? Really?

4) Figuring how to use George W. without making him look weak or inferior:

...how and where to use the 43rd president is a vexing question for the campaign. George Bush is certain to remind voters that his brother hails from a political dynasty. And he could force Jeb Bush to confront the decision to invade Iraq, an issue the candidate stumbled over early on. Aides further worry that the former president, a charismatic and agile campaigner, could outshine his brother on the stump.

So Jeb is afraid of using his brother for fear that he will look inferior in comparison to him. Why is this man running for President at all?

5) More ad spending. Bush's SuperPac, Right to Rise (which either sounds like a Viagra pharmaceutical company or something vaguely neo-Nazi like, as in "Reich to Rise"), is going to spend several million more in ads, because the first $50 million they spent was so successful, with Bush now 4% in the polls.

Trump, appearing in Al Qaeda video, blamed by Lib Media for causing Muslim ire


When Hillary Clinton said that Donald Trump was being used in ISIS videos, but couldn't produce a video, there was widespread disappointment in the liberal media. But now, apparently, the Somalia branch of Al Qaeda has used Donald Trump in a video where Trump talks about a temporary ban on Muslims for national security reasons. This is being said to incite Muslims to join Al Qaeda.

The states where Trump is strongest and weakest


The New York Times published the results of a study of 11,000 interviews with voters who call themselves Republicans leaning (but may not all be Republicans--more on that below). They broke it down by congressional district to gauge the level of support for Donald Trump. The purpose of their study seems to be to show that places where people do racist web searches correlated nearly perfectly with places where Trump has his strongest support (really!). But let's ignore this wacko angle (unless we also want to see if Obama is most popular in places where blacks kill blacks) and see if we can get something useful from the data:

Super Conservative National Review calls Marco Rubio extremely conservative


The super duper conservative National Review calls Marco Rubio extremely conservative in two nearly identical articles today... or maybe its NR that's extremely conservative and Marco Rubio who is super conservative, you decide. One article by Jim Geraghty calls Rubio "plenty" conservative, and the other by Deroy Murdock calls him "solid"... involuntarily bringing to mind the unfortunate image of a bowel movement.

If Cruz wins Iowa, will Republicans stop pandering to special interests?


Every candidate who has won Iowa since 1980 has supported the hateful ethanol subsidies and/or mandate, which makes both fuel and food much more expensive for no good reason. But if Ted Cruz, who opposes the ethanol mandate, wins Iowa, which seems increasingly likely, does this mean that we will finally have a leader who has the strength to stop pandering to special interest groups?

With the news that a British Muslim family was denied access to the United States, for a "wholesome family trip to Disneyland", because one of the family members had set up a facebook page proclaiming himself a "Taliban supervisor" and sympathetic to Al Qaeda, it's a good time to rethink the immigration policies of the United States.
