Trump's campaign slogan, it seems.

And, like Han Solo, you can imagine quite a bit. Fnck. My kids could do a better job of running a national convention and they are 4 and 7. Congratulations GOP!

God bless the NRA! Update: it appears this post is perpetually on topic. God bless America.

Warriors in Seven

I can see Cleveland winning in six or even seven especially if Curry is not 100%, but I think ultimately Golden State's home court advantage will win out. My guess is they split the first two games in Oakland, and also the next two in Cleveland, and then the home team wins out. If Cleveland wins in six, it will be because they split the first two in Oakland and then win their 3 home games. What say you? UPDATE: Wow. Congrats LeBron and Cleveland.

Trumpland uber alles!

I await the sober and serious statements from the #Nevertrump folks about how they support Trump given how much he has "grown" as a candidate since a few weeks go. I estimate mid-June, certainly before the GOP convention.

City. Hill. Shining.

Last chance today Rubes. Can you pull a win out in something other than the outer rim territories like, Minnesota, Puerto Rico, and maybe Hawaii? UPDATE: Guess not. Shucks.

It's Trumps all the way down....

Trump! There is a guy who donated $1,000 to Rubes in my office and I am tempted to put up a Trump sign just to annoy him, but I don't think that would go over too well with anyone. Plus by virtue of his only primary win in Minnesota, Rubes is now in the lead! So the joke would be on me! Ha ha.

GOP Choices

Feb 23, 2016 by Ugh | 5 Comments
Here is my proposition: That from a Democrat's point of view, Trump is the "best" choice, beating out Rubio and Cruz from a pure issues standpoint (let's ignore how he might end up governing from the White House as a practical matter). My argument would be that Trump says a lot of outlandish things, but he's just saying out loud what Rubio and Cruz also believe but are more...careful about how they put it (e.g., on immigration, "enhanced interrogation"). Whereas, on other issues (e.g., abortion, social security) Trump actually has a much more left leaning view.

Clearly the only obvious course is to confirm whatever qualified nominee Obama sets forth. Anything less would be uncivilized.
