Goooood morniiiiiiing from Happy Larryville, GN!

But maybe he’ll get the rest of the Republican field to sack up.

Doubtful. Whoever gets nominated anointed will be beholden to the RNC and the folks controlling it. Their only interest in us is conning us into voting for whichever skankass candidate they decide upon.

Think I’m wrong? Look at how the RNC and GOP treat Tea Party types. “You want a limited federal government? Go fuck yourselves.”

The Constitution is on life support; neither major party views it as anything other than an impediment to power and treats it with utter disdain while feigning otherwise.

Look at all the scandals: IRS, BATFE, NSA, Benghazi, etc. Not one single person involved has faced any significant consequences. Nor will they; the system protects itself first and foremost.

As Zappa wrote in “The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing”:

‘Cause what they do in Washington
They just take care of NUMBER ONE
And NUMBER ONE ain’t YOU
You ain’t even NUMBER TWO

Good morning, Fatwa!

In which case then, the best thing that could happen to America next year is the election of Hillary Clinton. After 4 years of her, then maybe we’ll be in the mood to really burn the whole thing down and start over.

No!

That’s all I’m coherent enough to formulate.

Coffee anyone?

Cutting down the caffeine is probably part of the reason for lack of cohesion.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, TeX, Fatwa, and Sven!

I’ll take some coffee! Thanks, TeX!

Every four years I’m amazed at who gets the nomination from the two major parties. Who votes for these people? Especially on the R side?

Thomas Sowell may have provided the answer to my question:

There are so many conservative Republican candidates for the party’s presidential nomination that they may once again split the conservative vote so many ways as to guarantee that the nomination will go to some mushy moderate.

Another interesting thought:

In her latest book, “Adios, America!” Ann Coulter says, “if Romney had won 71 percent of the Hispanic vote in 2012, instead of 27 percent, he still would have lost. On the other hand, had he won just 4 percent more of the white vote, he would have won.”

Yet how much time does the Republican establishment spend courting the Hispanic vote?
