Was anyone actually surprised yesterday to hear that Jeb Bush had endorsed Mitt Romney
? The man who was SUPPOSED to be the next member of America's self-appointed Family of Nobles to ascend to the White House was ALWAYS going to endorse Romney. Whether this means that Jeb is the pick for the #2 spot remains to be seen, though under Republican tradition, if he isn't, that would make Rick Santorum the Heir Apparent for 2016.
But even if he isn't, this country should never, ever forget that it was Jeb Bush, the man who insisted that the corpse of Terri Schiavo be ventilated forever in the name of being "pro-life", who signed Florida's "stand your ground" law that will in all likelihood let George Zimmerman, who went out packing a gun to go hunting for black males on a regular basis, get away with the cold-blooded murder of Trayvon Martin. I'm calling on myself and my compatriots to not let any mention of Jeb Bush go by ever again without a photograph or mention of Trayvon Martin attacdhed to it. Because this country, when it forgets (as it will) what Jeb Bush's brother did to this country, it must never be allowed to forget just who it was
that made it legal to kill people because of the invented "threat" of their race. I want the face of Trayvon Martin to haunt Jeb Bush's dreams for the rest of his life.
