It’s comical watching Ted Cruz and the Republican establishment try to stop Donald Trump

It‘s kind of comical watching Ted Cruz, John Kasich and the Republican establishment try to stop Donald Trump. I thought both of their attempts were kind of clever:

cruz-fiorina

  • First, Cruz formed an alliance with Kasich to try to “divide up” the states in terms of who ran stronger as an opponent to Trump. For example, Cruz is running pretty close to Trump in Indiana.[1]
  • Second, Cruz announced that Carly Fiorina would be his choice for Vice President. It’s an inspired choice, and since he’s an asshole and she’s an asshole, they would make a natural coalition. The only thing missing from the equation is Chris Christie, the third asshole who started the race.[2]

But it’s all not going to make any difference. The more the Republican establishment tries to stop Donald Trump, the more he’s endorsed by the voters. I think the voters see it as a badge of honor that the Republican establishment hates him.

I don’t think they’re even going to get it to a contested convention. I think he’s going to win this thing outright.

And his populism will definitely be a huge challenge for Hillary Clinton to overcome. The only good news is that Trump keeps sticking his foot in his mouth when it comes to women. Alienating half of your voter base really is not a good political strategy.

This will become a question of who is hated more: Hillary or the Donald? By that time this blog will be in overdrive, and I will barely be coherent. But so it goes.


[1] Kasich kind of screwed up that strategy when he told the media that he wasn’t telling his voters not to vote for him. Oops.

[2] I’m excluding Donald Trump for the moment, who, although also an asshole, is more defined by his extraordinary Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

    If that wasn’t enough, former House Speaker John Boehner called Cruz “Lucifer in the Flesh” this week, and added that “I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.” Cruz claimed only to have met the former Speaker on a couple of occasions, but I guess those were enough for Johnny Boy.
