Rafael's Rural, Reactionary, Religious Republicans

A letter to the editor from a guy named Fred in one of the larger Texas newspapers discussed the presidential campaign, post-Iowa caucus. I posted this reply:

"Fred ~~~~ makes a point that Rafael (Ted) Cruz, who has focused his campaign almost exclusively on appeals to conservative evangelical Christians, should prosper in the southeastern states that hold primaries on Super Tuesday.

Are southern states dominated by religious fundamentalists because the people are largely rural and reactionary, or is it the other way around? Are they backward because of their religious beliefs, or are they religious because they're backward?  In either case, the percentages indicate that there may be enough rural, reactionary, religious Republicans to help Rafael win the party nomination. What is less certain is whether there are enough of them outside the former Confederacy to win a national election."

Pulverize the s.o.b.

As long as Ted Cruz (rhymes with red ooze) was 20-30 percentage points behind him in GOP popularity polls, Donnie Trump was content to allow Ted to play the part of his miniature poodle. He'd smile when Ted looked up at him with wet, loving eyes and begged to lick his cheek.

That display was sickening. There'll be a lot more entertainment value in watching Trump savage that goddamned Canadian interloper.

I suspected it all along, but now I have proof that Marco Rubio is just another worthless Republican POS.
