Full Disclosure

As some of you may have read here the other day, my wife is going to work for an organization affiliated with Jeb Bush, a likely presidential candidate. An old friend of mine, Senator Ted Cruz, seems likely to run as well. And another probable candidate, Bobby Jindal, a conservative Indian-American convert to Catholicism, is very nearly my demographic twin. So as you can tell, I have multiple sympathies. I reserve the right to criticize or praise any of these candidates, or their rivals, in the future, and expect to exercise that right frequently.

Update: Since this post originally appeared, my wife has gone to work for Jeb Bush’s campaign.

Update 2: The Bush campaign called it quits on Feb. 20, 2016.

It’s a lot like The ... Read More
