Five State Sweep for Trump

 

 

This surreal election year continues with Trump victorious in the primaries of Connecticut, Rhode Island, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware.  After tonight Trump has about 950 delegates pledged to support him on the first ballot.  He needs 1237 to get a first ballot win.  There are 622 delegates left to be awarded.

In other news Trump apparently has rejected attempts by his new advisor, Paul Manafort, to make him appear “more presidential”.  Trump the ego-maniac of course only wants yes-men and yes-women around him, and it was predictable that he would reject any attempts to have his campaign strategy be anything other than the next fool thing he wishes to utter.  In almost any other election year such a “strategy” would be disastrous, but Trump is riding a wave of voter discontent and the normal rules of politics appear not to apply to him, at least not yet.

  1. And I vowed I would never again vote for the “lesser of two evils”.
    Let’s see now; rattler or cobra? Pick your poison.

  2. Things I learned from listening to Rush Limbaugh (which is not to say that I learned them from Rush himself)
    .
    Trump is winning with lo-info voters
    .
    Trump dominates states that Republicans won’t carry in November
    .
    Trump is not only Obama in white face, he’s Holly Golightly in drag (stag?) By which I mean he’s a real phony
    .
    It’s starting to look like everybody in the Republican party is going to get what they want, and everybody is going to be very unhappy about it.
    .
    A near majority, if not an actual one, of the people of this country want to be ruled, because self rule, like math for Barbie, is hard.

    Just want to point out that my nickname is “Barbie,” and that I have multiple degrees & certifications including a bachelors degree in Mathematics that includes physics, chemistry, & biology. 😉

    I FULLY understand the sentiment & have been tempted to behave this way myself. However, the truth of the matter is that since Ronald Reagan (1984) I have voted for the lesser of 2 evils. Unless Cruz wins the nomination, I am likely to never have a chance to vote for someone who is not the lesser of 2 evils for the rest my life time. I am very happy about the evil that was prevented by my selecting the lesser of 2 evils–when they were elected prez. If we wait around for a perfect candidate, we will have no voice and the maximum amount of evil will be done.

    “A near majority, if not an actual one, of the people of this country want to be ruled, because self rule, like math for Barbie, is hard.”

    Right on. Most folks want someone (else) to be in charge and really don’t care who is elected. My guess is no more that 20% have strong feeling about the issues and most of these feelings are emotional or ideological. Each presidential candidate seeks to fulfill the needs of the times. Obama assuaged liberal guilt, Trump our sense of failure and loss of power, and Hillary generalized victim-hood where ever it can be promoted.

  6. Let us pray that Donald, if elected, will be a good President.

    Donald would make a fantastic president. Oh, you’re referring to Trump, not McClarey.

    Is anyone else concerned by Chris Christie sharing the spotlight next to Trump – is he positioning (figuratively and literally) for a VP spot?
