Literalist that I am, I sent him the following. I reproduce it here, in case the folks who were soliciting on Jeb's behalf forget to give him the message.
Dear Jeb: You look forward to hearing from me? Here it is:
Get out of the race.
The country is in deep trouble and we need someone with better conservative bona fides than you to get us out. The longer you stay in the race, the more you distract from the candidate we all need to get behind, because face it, we're all not going to get behind you. We do not need Romney 2.0.
But please feel free to support whomever our candidate eventually is.
-genuine really-o truly-o name here
PS I won't be contributing $25, $15, or even $5 today or ever.
Question: Was that too subtle?
Update: As a result of my impassioned plea to Jeb Bush, he (or his people) sent me the same identical gimmee email again this AM. Never say that politicians never listen! (It goes without saying!)
