There’s one thing I do agree with the teahadists about: it’s fucking amazing how much establishment media favors the wise Burkean daddy Republicans (Romney, McCain, Christie, Jeb) over the wild-eyed tea party bucks (Rand Paul, all the nuts who ran against Romney in 2012).
Jen Rubin is en easy target, she wrote eight anti-Perry pieces in one day during the 2012 election, and she’s already full-time on the anti-Rand Paul beat. Joe and Mika are shameless shills for Chris Christie. Also too, Jebmentum:
If @JebBush suddenly got massive fire in the belly 2 B prez & spent '14 making smart moves, he would be WAY ahead in the invisible primary

For those wondering whether @JebBush could win 2016 Republican presidential nomination, answer is absolutely yes. Strong in general too.
