Fair warning: Do not let Jeb Bush slip off the radar. Ever.
"...By all accounts, Jeb is deadly serious about this senatorial run, and the Democrats have few statewide officials that could run against him. The best hope is that Charlie Crist makes a run of it and either wins the primary or so bloodies Jeb that he's easier pickings in the general for a Democrat like Representatives Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Robert Wexler or Kathy Castor, the latter of whom was the only Florida Democrat to vote against the $700 billion bailout bill, giving her some populist credence.
And then there's the only Democrat holding statewide office, state CFO Alex Sink, who may represent the Democrats' best hope of saving the Senate from the putrefying presence of Jeb Bush. Crist, Sink, whomever: Somebody has to shut Jeb down and to do so, they'll have to start early -- like, now; 2010 isn't far away. And before you accuse me of suffering from Bush Derangement Syndrome or some such nonsense, know this: I suffer from Contemptible Fuckwad Derangement Syndrome. Family name has nothing to do with it."
