Jeb Bush and the Voyage of the Pocket Liner
Governor Jeb Bush has timed a Florida children's literacy promotion involving reading "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe" to the release of the movie adaptation of the book produced by a big-time Republican donor. That the book has some pretty subtle Christian evangelizing doesn't matter so much to us; we suspect the deal stinks just as bad if you're a believer. Talk about cross-promotion.
What's next? "Drive to Work Day" for the opening of "Cars"? We'd prefer "Brokeback Mountain's Ride a Cowboy" event.
