It’s pretty telling when the highly (severely?) conservative Jeb Bush becomes the voice of reason and sanity in the increasingly unhinged, detached-from-reality, shrill, hateful (homophobic, xenophobic, misogynistic), intolerant, ultra-militaristic, theocratic/Dominionist John Birch Society Teapublican Party.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) said Thursday that he found it “troubling” that the 2012 presidential candidates are “appealing to people’s fears and emotion” on the campaign trail, according to reports.

“I used to be a conservative and I watch these debates and I’m wondering, I don’t think I’ve changed, but it’s a little troubling sometimes when people are appealing to people’s fears and emotion rather than trying to get them to look over the horizon for a broader perspective and that’s kind of where we are,” said Bush, according to Fox News.

Jeb Bush 2016, after President Obama kicks these lunatics’ butts (see a slew of polls on that subject) this coming November? At least that would bring the Republican Party back to a traditionally conservative place, and away from the radical, extremist cliff they’ve hurled themselves off of ever since the Tea Party raised its ugly head, and ever since they all contracted Obama (mixed-race/black guy in the White House) Derangement Syndrome in 2008/2009.
