Life Support

At his website today Brad DeLong grabbed an image of Jeb Bush with the CNN chyron: “BUSH: MY CAMPAIGN IS NOT ON LIFE SUPPORT,” and makes the inevitable connection:

But is it the case that the JEB! Bush campaign’s soul fled long ago? And that it is now being kept alive at huge expense only because of ideology-crazed wingnuts who refuse to recognize the reality of the situation?

I’d say that calls for a second opinion.

Paging Dr. Frist! Stat!
