You know… there was a time a socialist didn’t have a snowflake in Hell’s chance of becoming the nominee of a major US political party.
Then again there was a time we didn’t need a disclaimer on a cup explaining that hot coffee will burn you.
If you’ll pardon an observation… Bernie seems to have an inordinately strong following among children whose parents failed to teach them not to jump in the van with the creepy old guy offering free candy.
Note to Bernie’s kids…
If you send large groups of thugs to forcibly shut down political speech with which you disagree, rough up or intimidate their crowd, or assault the speaker… avoid calling OTHERS Nazis.
You’re about a goose-step away from annexing the Sudetenland yourself.
In just under 30 races, Kasich has won zero state primaries. He’s 2nd choice in few. But “states won” is not the deciding factor, it’s delegate count.
— Delegates required to win = 1237.
— Kasich has 63.
— Kasich needs 1174 more to win.
— There are 1392 delegates still out.
So a Kasich victory is mathematically possible if he holds the three opponents that have soundly beat him thus far to a combined total of 218 more delegates from here forward… and almost half that many will be allotted winner-take-all today in Florida to someone else.
Given most of the outstanding races award delegates proportionally, his path to victory, short of a brokered convention at which it is handed to him… Is for EVERY remaining opponent to drop out.
You couldnt find the Kasich path to victory with 2 flashlights and a bloodhound.
If he owns a calculator, he knows he isn’t running for president. He’s running to stop someone else from being president.
Seriously. It’s like watching a kamikaze pilot crawl into the cockpit while animatedly discussing plans for his big birthday party next week.
Honestly thought he’d drop out before getting stomped like a bug in his home state… but rumor has it the RNC promised him 72 virgins.
Don’t get me wrong, I know many politicians do their first run for pres knowing they won’t get it, but hoping it’ll build street cred. For example in this case it may give Marco a shot at a better prom date when he graduates next year.
Anyway, far as I’m concerned Marco is just one more guy that arrived in DC courtesy of a bus ticket paid for by the tea party and immediately conformed to the go-along-to-get-along mold of the people they were sent to replace. As such, if getting beat like a rented mule in his home state tonight crushes his future political prospects… at least something good will have come from the night.
Look. I understand her handlers want her to “look strong”. That’s probably a great idea, particularly if you’ve used a brain injury the way most of us used “my dog ate my homework” to get out of an uncomfortable test.
That said, notwithstanding Obama’s own minister of propaganda being a fan of communist propaganda as an art form, there are just some people you DON’T want to emulate when running for president.
Besides, strong imagery aside, we now know EXACTLY how she’ll perform on the 3am call. No fudging that one, that horse left the barn in Benghazi:
“Sorry, you have reached our office after hours. Please plan your next life or death crisis between the hours of 8am and 5pm. Thank you for calling the US State Dept.”
I’ll just let the picture finish the rest of this post.
Seriously… thanks for making it so darned obvious. Saves time, Comrade Hillary.
