Non news flash: Marco Rubio 'absolutely' backs Jeb Bush priority, SB-6

Nothing like people driving around in Capitol Circles. Consider SB-6. The so-called "teacher tenure" bill that Gov. Charlie Crist might veto, much to the outrage of former Gov. Jeb Bush and his supporters -- many of whom were already outraged by all things Crist.

The fact that Crist might cancel the bill isn't a huge surprise. After all, Bush said Crist's support of the stimulus package last year was "unforgivable." That's not so easy for Crist to forgive.

More surprising: The fever pitch by the teacher-union/Crist-ites who say his Republican Senate opponent, Marco Rubio, needs to take a stand on this bill that isn't a federal issue. We presupposed Rubio supported the bill because if Bush called for more forrest fires, Rubio would fetch the matches.

OK. Congratulations guys. We asked Rubio spokesman Todd Harris (of Bush's 02 re-elect campaign) if Rubio supports the bill.

"Absolutely," Harris said, almost chuckling in the phone.
