Super Tuesday Outlook

February 29, 2016 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

The last week was good to front-runners, but I, Primo, hold to my view that The Day After SuperTomorrow we will be able to truly tell the character of both races, as actual, significant delegate totals are at stake.  Here are some story lines to watch.

GOP – Right now, I have no idea what’s going to happen, because I have no idea if the tag team of the Cuban Canadian Creeper and the RU-B0 Snark ‘droid have actually put a dent in the Donald’s momentum. It is possible, but I think unlikely, because the type of voter supporting Trump isn’t the sort who keeps up with political trends. They’ve been conditioned by years of insouciant Republican mendacity to discount any negative utterance about their guy as itself a lie, perpetrated by 1) desperate opponents 2) the “lame stream” media or 3) Democrats.

In fact, the entire snacilbupeR ethos is built on a tottering tower of lies, which grows another floor every time they project America’s problems onto liberals. It’s gotten so tall, that it was not just apropos, but inevitable that Trump, a walking edifice complex, would slap his name on it.  Thus, he seems to be maintaining his lead in tomorrow’s polls.  We will see what happens beyond tomorrow.

Dems – this one is a little easier to parse, because there’s only two candidates, neither of them is nuts and their disagreements tend to be professional, rather than personal. Bernie won’t win the delegate apportionments tomorrow.  The only measure of success we can hold him to is the one he laid out after Nevada, when he listed Vermont, Massachusetts, Oklahoma, Minnesota and Colorado as the states they expect to do well in.

He has a little reason to hope that could happen.   Colorado and Minnesota are caucus states, notoriously difficult to poll.  Like Schrodinger’s Cat, Bernie could be alive in there, or not.  Oklahoma, where independents can vote in the Democratic Primary for the first time, just showed a promising 5-point lead for Sanders, although two other February polls showed Hillary leads.  Similarly, recent polls have given Clinton a slim lead on Bernie in Massachusetts, but that’s a close one, too.  Vermont, of course, will be a Sanders win.

Four or five wins for Sanders, however slim, will allow pundits to declare him still viable, and give him a narrative to continue into the weekend contests with. But even before his Carolina pasting, it was likely he would find himself 200 delegates down after Tuesday.  (Pending the 27 delegates in the American Samoa Caucus and Democrats Abroad Primary.)


He Speaks!

Y’all, he was just waiting for Scalia to die.

And, of course, it was about guns … and domestic violence.  Thomas was wondering if it is constitutional not to let people convicted of domestic violence buy guns.

“Did the defendant use a weapon?” Thomas asked, appearing to worry whether suspending someone’s right to own a gun indefinitely when the offense “is not directly related” to the suspension violates the Constitution.

So if you whack your wife with a hoe, you ought to be able to use a gun the next time.

In my opinion, he needs to shut the hell up for another decade.

The problem, as seen by a state representative in Missouri, is that there just aren’t enough lawyers in the world.

The fix?

A Missouri state representative has introduced a bill would automatically make members of the general assembly lawyers — without law school, bar exams or any of the other training and credentialing that is usually required of attorneys — after they have been in office for two years.

This qualifies for the Bad Solution For No Problem Olympics.

So I brought flowers to a hospital once.  Three times and I can be a surgeon?

The bill failed but not before everybody hooted laughing.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

It did not take long after Trump refused to bad-mouth the KKK for being, you know, the KKK, that good ole Jeff Sessions comes a’knockin’ at his door.

Sessions’ endorsement is a major blow to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, whose success may hinge on winning those Tea Party and evangelical voters — and who has so often cited Sessions as an ally in his fight against the 2013 immigration reform effort.

The endorsement led Trump to say this means he’s “mainstream.”

Oh Yeah.

Jean-Marie Le Pen, the controversial father of France’s far-right National Front, on Saturday voiced his support for billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump’s insurgent bid for the White House. The de facto endorsement insinuates an unflattering — and unsought — connection between Trump and Le Pen, a known racist who was expelled last year from the National Front for his inflammatory rhetoric.

Not even in France, you twit.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

No One Deserved It More

Chris Christie is a nincompoop.  He’s Donald Trump is a cheap suit.

So, it was with a round of applause that I saw Tump send Christie scampering in drenched humiliation after he got used.


“Go home.  Get on a plane and go home.  It’s over there.”

Voters will be told the same thing the day after the election.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

I think she needs to ask Donald Trump what newspapers he reads.

If a 69 year old white American male does not know what the KKK is, he’s brain dead or lying.

Jake Tapper asked Trump about the David Duke endorsement.

Trump_Scumdog“I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists,” he said. “So I don’t know. I don’t know — did he endorse me, or what’s going on? Because I know nothing about David Duke; I know nothing about white supremacists.”

Never heard of them, huh?

Not even once?

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.
