Jeffrey Gillespie thinks that Jeb! is twisting slowly, slowly in the wind. A snippet:
And, even as The Donald continues to lead the ticket despite more and more bizarre comments, there are whispers in Washington that Bush’s only remaining supporters are a handful of old-school Washington insiders loyal to his father.
He has also, inadvertently, become the poster boy for a lack of resistance to the far-right elements that have propelled Trump’s bid so far. That’s unfair to Jeb — God knows, the lunatic fringe isn’t about to take a chill pill administered by anyone who they might consider to be a “mainstream” candidate — but it does show the voting public that Bush’s campaign is stuck in a 1990’s time warp; it is not operating with the lusty visibility that almost always translates to a win in the news cycle.
