Some guy in Texas just made Jeb Bush look ridiculous


Politico's Marc Caputo has the story:
What has happened to Jeb Bush? He can’t catch a break. His campaign has had about four shakeups and reboots since June. And his latest effort to turn the page Monday with his “Jeb Can Fix It” Florida tour was marred by three bad polls in Iowa, New Hampshire and Florida. And then….

CAN JEB FIX IT? – By Monday evening, #JebCanFixIt was trending worldwide on Twitter –as an object of mockery. That’s deadly for a campaign. It’s one thing to be ignored, patronized or disliked. But when the opinion of political elites mesh with social media trends in one massive jeer, the campaign loses clout. Candidates are like the “Godfather’s” Jack Woltz: “a man in my position can’t afford to be made to look ridiculous.” And right now, many see Bush’s campaign as ridiculous.
