It’s over 

  
Let’s summarize, shall we?

  • National Enquirer releases highly detailed report on Evangelical favourite Ted Cruz, just as Holy weekend begins
  • Trump way, way ahead in California, which has 172 delegates at stake
  • Every front page is filled with stories about how the Islamic State is expanding the battlefield to the West

This thing is over, folks. Trump is the nominee. 

So, if you’re like me, you’re going to do all you humanly can to get Hillary Clinton elected president.

    It may be over but not because of the National Enquirer. I know the American right is dumb enough to believe Fox News but I refuse to believe they are dumb enough to take the National Enquirer seriously.

    • Aongasha says:

      Why would folks not take the Enquirer seriously? Let’s see what the Canadian landscape shows; biased journalism thanks to terrible schooling, lack of investigative skills, inability to speak proper English let along write it, daily gotcha headlines, and the news reduced to scandal-a-day reporting. And that’s only the major media outlets. We haven’t even discussed the advertising flyers disquised as newspapers in smaller communities or TV panel shows, designed to pitch management’s political opinions. In fact, many of our so-called MSM make the Inquirer look good.

    As I always do, I go for outsiders, underdogs, and assorted other not -yet-vilified by a Koch financed citizen’s group politician. I’ll go for Jill Stein: intelligent, well informed, a person of integrity…and no chance of winning.

    Nothing yet in the MSM……if there was any truth to it…..would they not have picked up the story by now?……
    No fan of Ted Cruz, but it wouldn’t be the first time the Enquirer totally fabricated a story……though they did call it on Sen. John Edwards…
    It’s either the end of Ted Cruz, or the end of the Enquirer…….

    I’m actually torn.

    I’d kinda like to see what a Trump presidency would be like. Maybe it’s like people watching car racing to see the crashes.

    On the other had, I kina want him to lose the presidency so his gigantic ego gets popped like a balloon.

    But at the same time Clinton seems incredibly fake and Bernie Sanders could make a decent living in Vegas as a Larry David impersonator.

    • davie says:

      I tend left…but, like you , I wonder what a Trump admin would look like.
      Clinton, I shudder as to what such an admin would do outside the USA. The witty ‘We came, we saw, he died’ quip, the decades of thirst for revenge on Iranians for imagined threats, and the crimes in Honduras, including the recent Caceras murder, strongly suggest to me that a Clinton admin would be bad for a lot of people around this planet.

      There is a school of thought that says a candidate that annoys both the right and the left is the perfect candidate. I happen to adhere to that particular opinion.

    Is california a “winner takes all” state regarding the delegates?

    • Michael Bluth says:

      No it isn’t Matt.

      Goofy rule, but here it is.

      Three delegates awarded to the winner of each of California’s 53 congressional districts plus an extra 13 delegates to whoever takes the most votes in the state.

      It should be a very interesting general election.

      It appears that Hillary will be the major party candidate with the second highest unfavourable ratings in the past 50 years. First being Trump.

      Is “Who do you despise least Hillary or Donald?” really going to be the ballot question?

      • ottawacon says:

        It is a ‘winner take all rule’, it is just measured at the district level so very unlikely to produce a one-candidate delegate bloc. But it is also not a proportional representation rule, so the number of delegates the strongest candidate is going to be a higher percentage than actual support.

    “5 secret mistresses”?

    Haha. I doubt it.

    Cruz is definitely going to lose to Trump but its not because he’s a womanizer. For better or worse, Cruz is exactly the annoying, uptight douchebag he presents himself as. The possibility of him having even one mistress let alone 5 is highly unlikely. What you see is what you get with that guy; if he tells you God is always watching, you can bet that he means/believes it.

    Sadly, this is a good preview of whats to come in the general. You just know that Trump the scum bag is going to go after Hillary on her husband’s affair.

  7. e.a.f. says:

    its Easter and some people do believe in miracles. who knows perhaps Trump will see the light and go do something else. I did say its Easter.

    5 mistresses. Don’t think that will be a problem in the U.S.A. The Govenor of Alabama seems to “get around” and he is still in office. His wife left him after 50 years of marriage because of his affair. One could campaign on, he’s just the Republican version of a Kennedy.

    In a lot of countries, the National Enquirier is not a news source for people deciding how to vote, but this is the U.S.A., so who knows.

  8. dave says:

    Sorry Ted, no cigar.

  9. MississaugaPeter says:

    IMO, Hillary may be the best of a very bad group of possible options. The degree I am unsure. I wish Bernie had a chance.

  10. davie says:

    Also a feature of their election system down there is that the 2 big parties look to have even tighter control of the election process than parties up here have. Some candidates’ names are not allowed on the ballot in some states – Gary Johnson and Jill Stein, for example.

    It’s almost like Iran where the theocratic side of their governance rules on whether or not a candidate can run.

  11. smelter rat says:

    Too bad you aren’t going to help Bernie. He’s the change America needs.

  12. Doug says:

    Don’t count out John Kasich. He’s one of the smartest and most ruthless politicians of the last half century in American politics. He may just pull this out of the fire yet,

    • Maps Onburt says:

      I really hope you are right Doug. I watched the CNN interviews of all five leaders a few nights back and Kaitsh was the one I kept saying “why the heck is dead last in the polls?” For. He’s got the best positions of all of them, he’s not scary like ALL of the rest of them and he’s got experience in and out of government. I guess if I was a citizen in the Us right now, I’d vote for Cruz to split the Donald’s delegate count up to the convention so he doesn’t go in with his 1200 or so wins and has to fight on the floor. Then I’d throw my support to Kaitsh. No way in hell I could vote for Hillary who’s killed people to advance her career or Sanders who sounds like a throwback to the seventies and we all know how that worked out.

      In order of my preference then, it would be Kaitsh, Cruz, Trump, Sanders and then Hillary. I think any of the last 3 or four would have me move to Canada.

    Anonymous announced that they would release information on Cruz in early March if he did not get out of the race. They say they have more to come.
