Jeb Bush Called Himself "Hispanic"

Here's a strange little item that came to light while I was visiting my family last weekend.  Former Florida governor and current GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush identified himself as "Hispanic" on a voter registration form in 2009.  While it's true that he married a woman originally from Mexico and speaks Spanish fluently, this does not make him Hispanic.  Like Americans in general, I speak English, but this does not make me English in the ethnic sense.  In reality, John E. Bush (or Juan E. Arbusto, if you like) is a gringo from a long line of gringos, just like his presidential father and brother, both named George.
