I think it would be a bad thing for the country if there is only one party that is relevant when it comes to winning national elections. People want and need a viable alternative even if they end up not voting for it. Having essentially one party governing the country indefinitely is not a good idea.

Then the Republicans need to get their shit together.

Although California's doing fine with pretty much one party.

I think it's a bad thing for this country that there are only two parties.

There's the door, Donald. Looks like plenty of people are more than happy to push you out of it, too.

Given that I hate the Republican Party's candidates, I'm still enjoying this Trump thing. Hope he goes a long way...

He still has his defenders oddly enough. Will be interesting to see how/if this hurts him in the polls going forward. Never mis-underestimate conservative anger towards the left. Many of the conservatives have nothing but contempt for McCain because he is deemed "too liberal" or a "RINO" by the far right fringe.

Had these comments about McCain been made by Obama or a Democrat, the GOP and the far right fringe would be unified in their anger over such comments. However since it was one of their own who said it, the excuses will keep coming from the far right and they will continue to back him and support him. The establishment side of the GOP will continue to denounce him, which will make for an interesting primary season in the GOP.

With all due respect to Bernie Sanders, this is great for Hillary. Nobody is even talking about her email scandal at the moment, or since Donald Trump threw his combover into the crazy three ring circus. The GOP debates will be pure fucking gold.

I honestly think it's not good for her. Nobody is talking about her 'scandal' (which was hardly a scandal -- more of republicans grasping).

They need to get it out of the way now. Not in the future.

Could it be that most voters don't actually give a shit about the email "scandal"?

I don't really know if it is a scandal or not to he honest, though i suspect you are right. Having said that, i don't really care either, she has my vote the republicans have lost it.

And yeah people most likely won't care about it. Or, they do care but not enough to actually vote republican, because nobody (outside of the fringe) really wants to turn back the clock on decades of progress.

Name the Republican you like better than Trump to vote for? He's still top 3 on my list of most sane. I'm not kidding. These people are crazy town. I don't really believe most of what Trump says. He's rich and having fun to me. He's just likes the attention. And you know what he could win, because the other people are terrible. And they haven't gotten any press at all.

Trump has the other Republican candidates and the GOP establishment
so terrified that it would be no surprise to me if they found a way to ban him from the upcoming debate or suddenly canceled the event.

I have not had enough popcorn in the house to keep up with
watching the Fox News "talking heads" trashing and bashing Trump.

They want Jeb so bad.

Except for a few commentators, Fox News is singing the same song as the rest of U.S. media.

It's a riot watching this loose cannon rock their boats.

I like him.

That's my opinion.

Also, Trump not backing off the McCain comments. Says McCain does nothing for vets.

McCain deemed too liberal? And this is a guy who gets cosy with fascists/fascist sympathisers.

Put down the popcorn and read. Reading is fun. What is it you are blinded by? Do you like that he's an asshole? Do you like that he's a racist? What is it?
