William Temple has a schtick. He goes to conservative events as as Button Gwinnett, a Georgia man who signed the Declaration of Independence. He carries a Gasden flag. (It's been signed by politicians including Ted Cruz and Michele Bachmann.)
Temple's unique garb means that he -- and his anti-Jeb talk -- will get lots of attention over the next few days. As Bloomberg Politics' Dave Weigel noted, Temple "will be photographed 10 million times." We're not to 10 million yet, but CPAC doesn't end until Saturday, so there's plenty of time.
