Everybody sitting on the edges of their seats in eager anticipation of Jeb Bush's announcement for presidency can now circle a date on their calendar.
W's little brother tweeted out an image of himself staring at an ominous, alien aircraft-like light, similar to that scene in Close Encounters of the Third Kind where Richard Dreyfuss just gives in to the power of beings from outer space, with the message: “Coming 6.15.15. Be the first to know.”
Already, Jeb is offering promises to the American people that will be impossible to keep. I.e., signing up for an email list going out to thousands of people means you probably won't be “the first to know.” So, tell your grandmother and investment banker uncle not to get their hopes up.
No doubt to show off his "man of the working class" credentials, Jeb's announcement will be held at 3 p.m. on June 15 at the Theodore R. Gibson Health Center at Miam Dade College, according to this tweet from Politico's Marc Caputo:

Meanwhile, Jeb's announcement of his announcement comes on the same day that Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced his second crack at the presidential bat. The designer glasses-wearing cowboy launched a website for his run, making the total number of Republicans chasing the GOP nomination, including Jeb, up to 11.
