If Trump Loses in November, Don’t Blame #NeverTrump for Keeping Their Word
The only reason I can figure that they are pursuing this insane tack is that they are puzzled to find people who behave in a manner that is different from that of their man-god Donald Trump.

Kasich’s Indiana Team is Not Very Smart
Let’s say you really, really want John Kasich to be President. That’s fine – I disagree, but I get the appeal for some people, and I also get how Cruz might turn some social moderates off. So if you think John Kasich is the best option left, I actually honor the sentiment. However, if you live in the real world, where math exists and the | Read More »
I am Glad Chris Christie Endorsed Donald Trump
No, really, I am. I don’t think his endorsement helped Trump any at all, and it has given us some of the best moments of this campaign season. First there was the look of horror on Christie’s own face the moment he realized what he had really gotten himself into: Then there was Christie’s wife’s reaction last night to Trump’s dissertation on the “woman card”: | Read More »
BREAKING: Cruz to Make a Major Announcement in Indiana Today at 4pm
Team Cruz has announced that they will make a major announcement today in Indiana at 4pm. They are being tight lipped about what the announcement might entail but there’s a lot of speculation that Cruz intends to announce that Carly Fiorina (or someone else) would be his VP choice. Of course, it could be something less drastic, like an announcement by Mike Pence, who is | Read More »
John Kasich Delegate Watch: Kasichmentum!
John Kasich won a whopping 5 delegates last night, which actually makes this the most successful night John Kasich has had since March 15th. That’s right! Since Kasich’s huge win in Ohio six weeks ago, he has corralled a massive total of nine delegates, over half of which he got in Rhode Island last night. So, a pessimist might say, John Kasich is still eighteen delegates behind | Read More »
Donald Trump: “I Consider Myself the Presumptive Nominee.”
After Donald Trump’s somnolent victory speech tonight, he took questions from the media. During the Q&A, Trump revealed that he considers himself to be the “presumptive nominee.” Unfortunately, math disagrees with Trump. “Presumptive nominee” means you have clinched the nomination and are just waiting for it to be official. Trump is still about 300 delegates short of that number. So, what Trump considers himself in | Read More »
CT, RI, MD, DE, PA Democrat Primary Results: Why is Hillary Still Losing States to Bernie?
The networks have already called three of the five states on the Democrat side for Hillary – it looks like she will win Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Delaware, although not by the margins she had hoped. However, Bernie Sanders looks like he is going to win Rhode Island, and it looks like he may well end up winning Connecticut. You can find the full results here. | Read More »
Nothing that Happened Today Changed Anything
It looks like Trump has swept the Northeast, as he was absolutely expected to do. Almost all of the voting simulations that have happened to date predicted that Trump would get all or nearly all of the delegates today. Save your freakout for another day. It looks like some of the states, Trump will win by bigger margins than expected. Big deal. Cruz has done | Read More »
Rush Limbaugh: Trump Supporters Need to Stop Whining about the Delegates
I don’t think I am going out on a limb here by saying that Rush Limbaugh has been… well, if not friendly to Donald Trump, at the very least not antagonistic to Donald Trump. I’m being generous to Rush here. But even Rush on today’s show acknowledged that even if Trump runs the table today in overwhelming fashion, that doesn’t really change the delegate calculus: it all | Read More »
No, Trump is Not over 50% Nationally
Trump’s supporters, who are among the most credulous people on earth (which is the main reason they are Trump supporters) have been touting a poll which purportedly shows that Trump is above 50% nationally. Actually, it shows that he is at 50%, but still. The main problem with this poll is that it is a SurveyMonkey poll, which is to say, a non-scientific poll. In other words, | Read More »
The Media will Try to Anoint Donald Trump Today
Today, voters from an area of the country that has no thought or hope of giving Republicans any electoral votes in November will go to the polls. They come from an area that has for years enacted failed economic policies that have caused the region to systematically hemorrhage both population and jobs to other areas of the country – areas like Texas. They come from | Read More »
The Cruz/Kasich Alliance is Not Too Late (But it Might Be Too Little)
I see a lot of people on twitter who fancy themselves to be smart observers of politics pooh-poohing the Cruz/Kasich alliance as “too little, too late.” This is absolute hogwash. As long as both Indiana and California are outstanding, the nomination is very much in play. If anyone wants to preach defeatism or to surrender to Trump before the 1,237th delegate vote is actually counted, | Read More »
BREAKING: Cruz Campaign Vetting Carly Fiorina for VP
The Weekly Standard is reporting that Carly Fiorina’s inner circle has confirmed that the Cruz camp is vetting her as a possible VP pick. Obviously, there is a long way to go before then, but in the event that Cruz does emerge from a bruising contested convention, it would behoove him to have a fully vetted VP in the wings. From the WS: Ted Cruz’s | Read More »
Did Ted Cruz’s Campaign Manager get Cruz a Free Commercial on ESPN?
Apparently, Ted Cruz’s campaign manager Jeff Roe was in Houston last night watching the game between the Red Sox and Astros. Roe seems to have forked out the big dollars for a seat behind home plate for one reason. As the Blaze reports: Ted Cruz campaign manager Jeff Roe gave the idea of “earned media” a completely new meaning Sunday night as he held a | Read More »
