JebWatch '10: America Loves, Hates a Dynasty


• It is a pretty wonderful mess that Man Without Portfolio Jeb Bush appeared in support of Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul last night-because it was the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Americans With Disabilities Act. Which Jeb’s father, as president, signed. Which Rand Paul has spoken against, on the grounds that it is “federal intervention” in Americans’ lives-and has also distorted its requirements, so as to inflame “anti-government” Tea Party sentiment.
• A letter to the editor of the Boston Globe: “Do we really want to go down the road of the dynastic politics of India, Pakistan, and other Second and Third World nations? Will we all find ourselves holding our breaths, waiting to see whether Chelsea Clinton or either of George W.’s twins or the next generation of Kennedys go into politics?” Too late! Closer to home, even the very capable administrator and also Chief Consort, the Lady Bloomberg, Ms. Diana “The Future Madame Chiang” Taylor, is apparently now getting the political respect due, in as-yet unknown parts, to her talent, current dynastic status and abundant household cash.
