In my opinion, the only April fools on this day are in Congress.

Apparently there's an open letter from a former Trump aid that basically says what many of us expected; the plan was never for him to get this far but his ego has taken over. How much of an actual "insider" is now in question but her assessment, though it took her too long, is spot on.

We've heard this a few times though. Not disputing it, but seems like it would make bigger news than it does.

The bigger joke is on us for allowing it to get to this point. Though one could argue that it just shows the need for a change in politics.

Just not this extreme

Those should be controlled mostly by people elected in mid-term and off-year elections in 2018 and 2019, so you're probably right. At least the tide will have shifted a bit with ten more years of Republicans dying off...

I find it baffling that there's so many states that vote for their state-wide candidates in mid-term and, especially, off-year elections. It's like the entire friggin' process is gamed so that Republicans can hold onto power for as long as possible. The fair way would be a single election every four years. Senate and House terms are four years, state-wide seats are four years, Governorships are four years...we'd have blue control all over this country. You'd have to be a total idiot to think that people voting in some state's odd year election where turnout is 18% has any bearing on public sentiment.

It's a giant circle that shows how fucked we actually are.

Trump has run before, pretty much as a goof to get ratings and promote his brand. But this time he actually gains traction, so he sticks with it for shits and giggles.

People call out his supporters for not realizing how stupid it is to support what is essentially a gag candidate, which has the reverse effect of emboldening them and making his support grow. Rinse, repeat.

I just had a little bit of a wild thought... about the 1992 election what with Bush/Clinton/Perot, and the similarity to today's potential Cruz/Clinton/Trump matchup, were the Donald to be jettisoned by the potential contested republican convention.

So, I was born in 1992. I merely know of Perot's existence, and some of the political positions he took (in some sense, he and Trump share similar economic populist positions). But, I can only assume the relationship between Bush and Perot was far more sour than the relationship between Perot and Clinton. Probably because Bush knew Perot was stopping any chance he had at reelection. Similar to what would happen were Trump to run independent.

Now, there's the early conceived notion that Trump was a Clinton plant. It just makes me think... if that were legitimately true, what about Perot? Was that just the learning example, or in some way could Ross Perot have been running knowing he would throw the race? And, does that mean we are likely to see Trump in 2020, if he so chooses to run independent? The question about Perot is mostly because I don't really have an understanding of the dynamic of that race, as a 92 baby.
