Jeb Bush's Email Transparency Is a Total Joke

As part of presidential hopeful Jeb Bush's quest to counteract his last name, he released a trove of purportedly personal emails in the name of "transparency." That's nice, but utterly symbolic: The emails he released were from a public-facing account that he used primarily to communicate with random constituents, not to actually govern. It's as though he released his spam inbox and proclaimed it as a window into his soul. If Bush really wants to make a statement, he'll give us the data that actually matters.
