New York Times reporter Jonathan Martin hit the New Hampshire hustings for his condescending Page 1 story, "Bush and Walker Point G.O.P. to Contrary Paths." Martin made it clear where those paths lead: Either up to the sunny moderate climes of colorful diversity with Jeb Bush, or down a dispiritingly white conservative lockstep path with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
In Martin's condescending take, Jeb Bush is on a mission to tell hard truths to his party: That Republicans " must accept a changing country: that the path to the presidency will be found through appealing to voters who may not look like them."
