Jeb Bush made it official today: he wants to be president.

There’s a big rally down in Miami — campaign posters, the whole smash. 

Also, as it turns out, a little digital fun.

The New York Times’ Jeremy Bowers noticed on now-candidate Bush’s website that the JavaScript of the announcement includes a synopsis of the movie “Die Hard.”

Yeah, that “Die Hard.”

Why?

No idea.
