Ok at this point, it looks like my man Kasich won Ohio like he said he would, but nothing else. While I am happy he remains in as a non-Trump (and hell, non-Cruz) alternative, I just don’t see what he thinks he viability is – outside of his home state, he was in the bottom half of every single contest. Assume his path forward has to do something with a contested convention (whatever that is).
With respect to the Trump juggernaut, I just keep on watching this over and over hoping that people will come to their senses:
This made me smile, unlike most of the real news from this campaign.
And while I am quoting random people off the internet, I am reminded of a post from some random guy on Twitter that went something to the effect of: “Illegal immigration will actually increase under a Trump presidency, but then Canada would send all the Americans back.”
The first chance we had to see the key occupants of the Republican clown car in a single forum didn’t disappoint. It was well run (not a small feat considering there were 10 people on stage), the grandstanding was minimized, we got to see some hand to hand combat and most importantly, it was informative – we got to learn more about almost all of the candidates to understand who Hillary will stomp next fall.
For me, almost everyone came off with a worse impression than what I came in with.
Started this page on my take on the Republican primary nominees… will keep it updated as time goes on, things develop and as I learn more…
