Cruz and Fiorina Hope to Steal a Few Delegates in Tanzayneeah 

Margaret, I am not running for President, so I have picked you to be my running mate.  Don’t laugh, darling. We have a better chance of winning than Carly and Ted.  And God help me, I hope we have a better chance than Trump and his running mate Huge Ego.

If you plan to vote for a Republican this year, please consider eating glass instead.  Between assaults at Trump rallies, lies about Planned Parenthood and debates about penis size, haven’t we all had enough?  After all, the worst thing that happened on the Democratic side this year was when Bernie Sanders told Hillary Clinton to stay off his lawn.

Seventeen clowns ran for the Republican nomination and although we are down to three, they all keep coming back.  Chris Christie and Ben Carson went away and Trump brought them back.  Carly Fiorina went away and Ted Cruz brought her back. John Kasich went away and… No.  Wait. Why hasn’t John Kasich gone away?

Kasich thinks he is getting the nomination.  Ted convinced Carly that they already have the nomination. And Trump cemented the nomination while talking about our embassy in Tanzayneeah.  I can only assume that is a country in the made-up world currently occupied by the Republican candidates.  After all, Trump’s Tanzayneeah is as real as the country Cruz plans to rule with Carly and almost as real as whatever world Kasich lives in.

And while all that is playing out, a former United States Speaker of the House has been convicted of a financial cover-up to conceal years of child molestation.   Hastert got 15 months in prison which seems like a short sentence until you realize the first Republican primary happened less than three months ago… Feels like three years.  But seriously, how many glass houses have to break in that party before Republicans get off their high horse and start realizing they are actually the problem? 

Hastert deserves life and the rest of us deserve a break from all these jackasses.  I mean it.  Really.

  14. I don’t seriously think He, Trump is behind this, just as I don’t think the Clintons are behind Trump’s running in the first place. But both concepts feel far too plausible, given the completely wack-a-doodle way our current crop of wing nut politicians and much of the media feed on and encourage each other.

    It’s quite apparent that He, Trump just LOVES “running for President,” pathological narcissist that he is. His appetite for praise and support seems insatiable, as is his intolerance of absolutely anything critical about himself, or anything or anyone he considers in his camp. (Were I to post something like, “I don’t think that’s the best tie He, Trump might have worn with that suit,” a tweet would immediately follow, with something like, “Can you believe that Gato criticized my tie? Have you seen her teeshirt? She is such a loser! Sad!”)

    HOWEVER, I suspect he has no interest whatsoever in actually BEING President, if he’s even thought that far ahead. Do you think he’s realized that the President can’t tweet seventy-five times a day, saying whatever he feels like saying? I think not…

  16. Interesting comment about Trump suggesting Cruz do this. I don’t know what Trump is thinking, as I think he shoots from the hip a lot and sees what sticks. I think Cruz is grasping for a life raft and is drowning. Setting Kasich aside, the GOP is left with the two worst candidates they could possibly imagine. In my view Cruz is a worse candidate than Trump as he believes his BS whereas Trump is just making it up and would not and could not do legally or morally much of what he says. I think Boehner may have articulated today the sentiment toward Cruz in Congress. Don’t get me wrong, Trump would be a disaster as President, primarily for his thin-skin, loose lips and narcissisctic persona.

  20. Hi, Keith, and others who’ve commented on this “game-changing announcement” by Mr. Senator Ted…

    Finally sensing (correctly) that a crushing (and well-merited) defeat has been staring him in the face for some time, Mr. “Caitlin Jenner Is Going To Molest Your Baby Girl In The Ladies Room” has decided to team up with Ms. “Planned Parenthood Sells Baby Parts” in a move guaranteed to win the hearts and minds of a nation…

    I wonder if He, Trump put ol’ Ted up to this, knowing full well that nothing short of a move this pitiful, this so ill-timed, and this thoroughly repugnant might possibly make Himself, Trump look even SLIGHTLY plausible by comparison.

  21. I believe the Senator is getting desperate and felt some action was needed. He is grasping at straws. Fiorina is a flawed candidate given how she mismanaged a company, yet she is probably a better choice than Cruz, so it can only help him, but not enough.

  23. It seems Trump has support from many angry white boys who are still sulking over the world getting too complicated for their feeble brains; and a few dumb females who stand by their man and hate hot Latina women, so let’s get rid of them all. So thank you, ladies, for making me laugh at the stupid folks.

  30. A CBC commentator who attended a Trump rally asked someone who was there why the crowds got so excited. He replied that he believed most of them were there to see a TV celebrity (Trump) and that while their eyes glazed over for most of the speech, they got super-excited when Trump put out the “soundbites” and the insults. He also noted that there was a certain percentage of the crowd who followed Trump around to all his rallies (paid, perhaps?).
    As to why anyone in his right mind would vote for Trump in the primaries, maybe its his celebrity status and the fact that they simply despise Cruz (with good reason) and don’t even know who Kasich is.
    Pathetic, isn’t it?

  40. Some people can be… are actually asking to be, fooled by other people. They are simply unwilling to put down their gadgets, turn off the tv and think. They are allowing the media to think and choose for them. Listen up, folks: Nobody is going to save us, we have to do it ourselves. When we don’t get the results we want from an election, it’s because we don’t care enough to support our candidates. We allow others to choose for us and then complain. If there was a ‘Do-Over’ button available, would you push it?
