Random Thoughts (Post-Indiana)

Eduardo (Ted) Cruz told everyone who'd listen that the Indiana primary was the last chance for God's people to ward off the threat of Trump. It didn't work, and now he gone.

Trump sucks ass, but Cruz is even worse. That's amazing. I didn't think it was possible until I saw it for myself.

Opinions are divided at this stage. Will Trump win a landslide victory in November, or be crushed in a landslide defeat? Here's what seems likely to me:

Trump is a creation of the media, particularly television. Unlimited free media coverage made his campaign possible. The media made Trump, and the media has the ability to destroy him. This party is just getting started.

Trump can't win in November with his current voters. He'll need to win over people who haven't voted in a Republican primary to win in the Electoral College.

If he gravitates to the middle of the road, he risks losing the conservatives who love him because in their dreams, he's just as insane as they are.

Conservatives who promise a landslide win base the forecast on polls showing voters are in a bad mood. In reality, Trump and Cruz don't appeal to every American who's dissatisfied with current affairs. That would include people like me, who are totally fed up with the conservative movement, the tea party, and Republicans in general.

Trump and Cruz appeal to a particular segment of the Disgruntled American Voter population, people who blame everything on Obama, and they've fought over it for months. Millions of other voters see Trump and Cruz as the problem, not the solution.

Have we finally seen the last of Cruz? Probably not. Tomorrow, Eduardo will have two items on his to-do list. First, pray to God that Trump is annihilated in November. Second, check on air fare to New Hampshire and Iowa. This chum bucket's entire existence is devoted to a relentless pursuit of political power. He's only interested in Senate membership as a way to keep himself on cable news shows, and he's already thinking ahead to 2020.

Danny (Goeb) Patrick is apparently planning to make the potty issue a priority the next time the Texas legislature assembles for more trouble-making. Danny doesn't want men in the same bathrooms with little girls, and maybe this is a crisis that is reaching epidemic proportions. It's getting harder to tell the boys from the girls these days.

For example, Danny looks like he might have been Danielle at birth. I don't want him in any restroom I'm using.

Is Carly Fiorina really more feminine than Caitlin Jenner? Be honest.

What about Ted Cruz? Okay, this isn't really his picture, but it's not too hard to imagine the possibilities.

Crime and Punishment

Since conservative Republicans believe that abortion should be forbidden anywhere, at any time, for any reason, the only thing that's up for discussion is whether the woman who obtains an abortion should be charged with a felony, or whether the women and her doctor should both be charged.

Welcome to life in Ted Cruz's America.

  • We need the Texas abortion law to protect the health of pregnant women.
  • We need the Texas voter ID law to end rampant fraud at the polls.
  • We need privatization of government services to improve the quality at a small fraction of the current cost.
  • We need private school vouchers to ensure poor minority children get a superior education.
  • We need to deregulate businesses to create millions of high-paying jobs.
  • And on and on and on~~
The shit Republicans will swallow to qualify for club membership is amazing.

Every time I hear someone mention Trump voters, I imagine people who look like the guy in the photograph. That guy, who's probably named Cletus Gluskey, is the prototypical 21st century Republican.
