Step Right Up; They're Naked And They Dance

Stupor Tuesday


It's been the Silly Season for some time now; unfortunately, that means we're talking about the state of the crippled mutant freakshow reality television program which has been passing as theater politics in the USA for nearly a quarter-century now.

Electoral-Vote.com, a website dedicated to voting Americans who live abroad:
Failing to denounce the KKK immediately was a huge blunder by Trump, certainly his biggest of the campaign. Bigotry (and, as a bonus, Duke is a vicious anti-Semite as well) is socially unacceptable in modern American society, and very few Americans are comfortable thinking of themselves as racist.

Trump's declarations about Mexicans and Muslims are both clearly just that, but he's been able to encode both as being about "national security." The Klan's endorsement, and Trump's wavering, both blow a huge hole in that fiction. Adding a bit more fuel to that fire is the fact that France's version of David Duke—Holocaust denier Jean-Marie Le Pen, who was thrown out of the French far-right National Front party by his own daughter for being too racist—also proffered his endorsement [of Trump]this weekend.

But today is a big day for Senator Bernie Sanders, Hillary The Inevitable !, Trumpolina;  Little Marky Rubio; Grand Turtlebear Teddy Cruz of the Church of I Kill You ! (Yes; he has assumed the mantle previously worn by Crazylady Michele Bachmann [Hot Hot Hot]); and John (Who?) Kasich.  Much is at stake, and All Eyes Are On The Prize, whatever that actually might be. 

Americans Like Everything To Be A Cartoon Contest

Per Wikipedia, Republican and Democratic Super Tuesday contests are being held in Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota (all with caucuses); and Georgia, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, and Virginia (all with voting primaries).

Republican caucuses only are held in Alaska and Wyoming, and a Democratic caucus in American Samoa.

Again per Wikipedia, "The Republican candidates can win about half of their 1,237 delegates" in Super Tuesday's caucuses and primaries. The Democrats compete for "over 880 delegates, roughly one-third of those needed to win" that party's nomination. So, yes; it's a big deal.

 At The End Of A Life Of Unceasing Toil For Your Owners™,
The Reward: A Tub Of Slaw

Who will win? Who will lose? Who will claim the Tub Of Slaw™? Who's to say if it's good or bad? And, Are These Even The Right Questions?

  1. 1)have you perhaps conflated two ohioans, each of whom has at one time offered himself as a candidate for president - both former congresspersons, both having croatian ancestry, one a democrat and previously a mayor, the other a republican and currently a governor - dennis kucinich and john kasich?

    2)“The end of the matter, after all has been heard: fear God, and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.” (Ecclesiastes 12:13).

    1. 1.) Probably.

      2.) My Gottskind, taken to a park where there was no standard child's playground equipment, observed, "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing."

Please feel free to thrill all humankind with the brilliance and importance of You. And forgo all civility (especially the passive-aggressive sort, aggression masquerading as mildness) . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

But, consider: Dogs have short attention spans, don't tolerate bullies, and we're notoriously thin-skinned -- so make sense, be brief, and play nice, or I'll bite you and pee on your leg. Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark Bark.
