Listen, Fellow Cruzers

Our old buddy Mike brought this up again in a post we encourage you to read in its entirety: Know what I like best about frothing Trump-haters? They’re never obnoxious, arrogant, or personally insulting. Except, of course, when they are. Trump supporters, no one should let you off of that bandwagon now. You should be

Get Shorty

It appears that Shorty has been well and truly got. Marco “Forked Tongue” ¡Ruuubio! has finally retired his hopeless loser campaign after having had his arse handed to him in his home state, Florida. Floridians don’t tend to forget being lied to easily, it would appear. Still, even though it at least keeps him from

The Answer is Obvious

From The Week, unable to fathom how Trump is managing to get as many votes as he is. (h/t Bill Quick). The Republicans really are gearing up to nominate one of the most polarizing figures to emerge in modern American politics. They are doing this despite the fact that he fails many supposed litmus tests

Sorry, We Have to Post This…

In our ongoing campaign to kick people when they’re down. So Ruuuuuuubio won MN, eh? Here’s a bit of perspective for ya: MN GOP caucus winners: 2016 – Rubio 2012 – Santorum 2008 – Romney Strong record of choosing winners! Heheheheheh! Much like the vaunted “Ames straw poll.” Where’s “Ames” again? We still can’t find

Hey, Three Out of Thirteen Ain’t Bad…

Laughing through the tears here. Well, not exactly. It turned out better than we’d feared, but it’s not exactly a game changer of a Super Tuesday. Unless you happen to be one of the wishcasters thinking that Trump was facing an uphill fight for the nomination, that is. If that’s the case, we sympathize. But

Well, We Guess This is it

At least it is for us. Super Tuesday is tomorrow, and we’ll be out voting for our guy Cruz, who is the only demonstrably, clear cut, doesn’t just talk the talk but also walks the walk and has been doing so since the day he joined the Senate. There’s a reason that the GOPe hates

Alright, Anti-Trumpers, This is It

Yes, we’re one of you. We’re not particularly fond of the idea of a wild card that we don’t know becoming the nominee either. Although, in all fairness, we haven’t had that much luck with the candidates that we thought that we knew in the past either, have we? But the facts are facts, and

Can You Hear Us Now?

So, GOPe, is it finally beginning to sink in? We, meaning the conservative, hard working, tax paying, leave us the fuck alone and we’ll all get along fine Americans, have been trying to get through your thick, insufferably arrogant, narcissistic skulls for years that we’re more than just a tiny bit sick and tired of

If This is A “Pussy”, We’d Say We Need More of Them

We mentioned in a previous post that we found a Trump supporter’s accusation that Cruz is a “pussy” a bit harsh. Those were our words. We were trying to restrain our usual self. Uncharacteristically, we know, but still. We don’t want to alienate people who are just as pissed off as we are, even if

Better Disavow This Nutjob, Ted, and Right Quick, Too!

This was just brought to our attention by LC readerjp, G.L.O.R. WASHINGTON — A controversial Christian evangelical leader whose endorsement is being proudly trumpeted by Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz works energetically to convert Jews to Christianity and has predicted that there will be a new period of concentration camps for Jews before the return

The Fix is In…

OK, “only” about 40% of precincts reporting, but it looks pretty solid, according to AoSDD: DEMOCRATS Bernie Sanders 59,577 votes (–) 60.5% Hillary Clinton 37,750 votes (-21,827) 38.4% Other 1,103 votes (-58,474) 1.1% We don’t envy the Prozi voters. We thought we had it bad with “hold your nose” candidates, but they’re stuck with choosing

Oh heck…

When he’s right, he’s right: We do enjoy it when a candidate actually says what we’re all thinking. Now, if we were an advisor to the Cruz campaign, we’d encourage him to do the same. Then we’d watch everybody else get crushed. Illegal immigrants are “the backbone of our country”, unknown filthy socialist Sanders plant?

Cruz Wins!

As we write, Iowa is a lock for Cruz with 98% in and him holding 27.4% of the vote to Trump’s 24.9%. We’re surprised. Pleasantly so, we might add, because we weren’t expecting this. We knew it could go either way but, unlike the “pundits”, we weren’t quite as sure considering how many times those

The Non-Debate, Debate

Not that we watched it all that much, we mainly went through clips post-mortem, but it pretty much turned out to be exactly what we’d expected it to be. A prolonged shooting gallery with the “moderators” as the shooters. Only two things (OK, so three, it was fun watching ¡Yeb’s! new-found confidence, safe in the

Whose Side Are They On, Anyway?

No matter, according to Occam’s Razor, they’re probably just stupid. We talked about yesterday how FOX walked straight into Trump’s trap, and events since then have done nothing to dissuade us of that. As we said yesterday, all they had to do in response to Trump’s initial suggestion that Kelly not be on the panel
