Presidential hopeful Jeb Bush is taking his message of naked emotional vulnerability directly to the people. As of this week, Bush wants to be America’s email buddy. True to his word, it seems like Jeb will respond to almost anyone.

A disappointing response for a variety of reasons. Suffice it to say that on this basis alone I will not be voting for Jeb Bush in 2016.
