Anyone remember 'The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty'? Well, not necessarily, that anyone remembers, since so few people bought the scandal monger's tripe.Ann will be fine, but NBC would do well to remember how much time it found for Kitty Kelly's controversy.

    Yes, we lost tonight. But let's regroup for 2012 and come back stronger than ever. That's why I support Jeb Bush, he was a popular governor of Florida and he'll win the battleground state easily. Also, in four years from now with President-elect Obama's disastrous policies, people would welcome another Bush in the White House for a return of stability.
