36. Amazing how "stupid" people become when they diverge from orthodoxy, isn't it?

I remember reading some remarks by Helen Keller about a newspaper publisher, shortly after she started talking about political ideas he didn't like:

"At that time the compliments he paid me were so generous that I blush to remember them. But now that I have come out for socialism he reminds me and the public that I am blind and deaf and especially liable to error.

Still, I expect Jeb is reading the political winds here. Anyone who isn't a complete ideologue would have to realize that the extremist personae the GOP is wearing these days is a big political liability for someone... oh... running for the presidency.
