The results of Super Tuesday are in. The unstoppable march of Fuhrer Donald continues, and personally, I couldn’t be happier…well sort of. Ted Cruz winning Texas and Oklahoma gives him enough juice to stay in the race, combined with Robot-Rubio refusing to back out means the Republican vote continues to be split three-ways. Donald will continue to win States (and eventually the nomination) with between 30-40% of the vote, and by “vote” I mean the 30-40% of the Republican fringe who are fucking stupid enough to vote for this con-man. As a life-long Democrat, part of me is overjoyed to watch my rivals literally destroy their party as a result of their race baiting, immigration fear-mongering, gay people shaming, shitting on everything Obama does tactics. After all, this is what they signed up for ever since the GOP embraced the Tea Party in 2010. There is another part of me that is ashamed to live in a country with enough morons that Trump wasn’t dismissed months ago as the absurd (although highly entertaining) sideshow that he is. The fact that he is STILL the front-runner continues to shock me.
But beggars can’t be choosers, and with the “meh” candidates the Dems are trotting out this year, we need all the help we can get. Fortunately the vaunted Republican Establishment has let their Frankenstein escape from the lab and now they can’t kill it. The Republican party has become so dysfunctional that Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell is telling his own party leaders they should start distancing themselves now because Trump will be destroyed in the General Election.
So even though we’re running Hilary (who basically NO ONE likes is excited about) and Bernie (a socialist hippie who looks like he teaches poli-sci at some upstate New York liberal arts school and hits the bong with co-eds after class) it looks like the Dems will have an easy time in the General.
