I'm not sure which one of these 2 claims is more bizarre.

Looks like Cruz may eek out a win in Alaska cauci
His team will go hysterical with 3 out of 11 Super Tuesday wins.

Rubio better hire a food taster.

wait Haruki Murakami's books are filled with similes. i know it's not made entirely of similes but characters in those books always come up with cool-ass comparisons.

So a take on the whole 'The Truman Show' scenario, then.

Wonderful.

This will be one really fucked up next couple of months.
It's weird, 'cause on the one hand I'm kind of enjoying watching the GOP implode, but on the other hand, it's scary, too, because they could take the wrong lessons from this fallout, and that would have negative impacts elsewhere.

that is just it

the GOP primaries are breaking all records, Trump is getting double the votes Romney got


this Trump thing is a movement, much like Obama was in 2008, look at the numbers at his rallies, and if one spends a little time on the AM dial talk radio, they will see many of his people are sick and tired of the lying politicians, some Bernie voters will go Trump over Hillary,
and a huge amount of working class Dems and independents that often go democrat will go Trump this time, don't believe your (meaning the general your) social media of group of friends is any indication of how this will play out.

It's like you never tire of trolling this forum.

oops,

I meant to write better than Obama was in 2008.

Obama was a very good candidate in 2012.


As candidates go, the objective is to win primaries and Trump has had more success with about the least money spent, people don't get how smart and successful he is, I expect him to keep doing the same in November. He is winning with the least capital and promises spent. How smart is that? Calling him a strongman, does not make him one. An elected official having the strong backing of the electorate? Well, that is more properly called a mandate that can lead to getting congress to actually do something. Trump understands the American people, he knows how to talk to them, he knows what their concerns are. He is much better at this than any of the so-called professionals. I don't think he is just lucky, to be winning, I think he is relying on some advisers. A person that can figure this out, and know how to win these campaigns without throwing money that they whored themselves to get like Jeb, Hillary, Rubio, Cruz, etc. is worthy of serious consideration. I give Bernie a certain amount of credit too, but he never had a chance, and is only a fly in the ointment.

it's funny to read comment section of Stephen Colbert's Late Night video. I support Bernie so much but gosh these Bernie supporters are annoying

How hard is it to appeal to the lowest common denominator? Fear and ignorance are powerful forces. Trump is a huge problem, but he's nothing without the bigger problem; the ignorant, the racists, and the assholes that brought him to be.

No, he's not just lucky, and no he's not going to win over any Bernie fans.

Are there enough to make him win? Will he somehow unite both sides into a antiTrump movement? Or will we just not have to worry about it because the math isn't on his side?

National Socialism was a movement, too.
