DT is not politic or polite. Last night was no different. Previously he alluded that M Kelly was unreasonable because she had her period and that B Obama schlonged H Clinton. His followers love his crudeness, something I just don't understand. In NH, people cheered when he repeated the comment on Cruz to the audience.

stumbled on this by pj o'rourke
http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-35521558
There's more but this is spot on:
John Kasich is the very popular conservative governor of Ohio, a not-very-conservative state.
Ohio is a microcosm of American conflicts - labour v management, nativists v immigrants, blacks v whites, Occupy Cincinnati v the 1%. They all hate each other, but they don't hate John.
Kasich beat an incumbent Democratic governor and was re-elected by a landslide. Before that he served nine terms shovelling important manure in the Augean stables of the House of Representatives - 18 years on the House Armed Services Committee and six years as chairman of the House Budget Committee.
No wonder he's so far behind. Republicans are in no damn mood for competent, experienced politicians with broad popular appeal.


My in-laws live in Dayton and are split, one a dem, the other a repub and they both like Kasich.

If Kasich were the GOP nominee, I would take a strong look at him.

But there is not way that will happen....he is a conservative, not a neo-con.

Love me some PJ O'Rourke. Saw him speak once at our alma mater (I was still a student) and ended up having a beer with him uptown after. His take on why Santa Claus is a Democrat and God is a Republican is hilarious.

With just over half of the precincts in NH reporting (population just over a million), both Bernie and Hillary each have more votes than Donald. The population in my area, mid-Hudson Valley NY, is just over three million, and our votes on April 19 might mean doodilly-squat.

Many years ago, when Bernie was first running for Congress, he introduced the band I was playing in at the time in front of a packed house at a bar in Burlington, VT. I have a video of it! I figure, if he wins I can wrangle a cabinet position out of it. Minister of wide smooth shoulders or some such.

I have also wondered about his ability to be effective if elected. But, if he actually did win, I think it would result in very long coattails and we would see a significant shift in the makeup of Congress so ya never know. Having watched Bernie since his first run for Mayor of Burlington as a journalism major at Saint Michael's College in Winooski, VT, I can say he is the real deal. He means what he says and he really, truly does care about the average person. It ain't just talk.

If Hillary wins, I see more of the last several years. She may be the one person more hated by Republicans than Obama. They would oppose her proposals just because. Just like with Obama. I remember hearing a Republican voter being interviewed on NPR in 2012. She was asked what the most important thing was in the upcoming election. She said getting the economy back on track and beating Obama. The reporter asked her to pick one. She said beating Obama. Really?

Now DT is picking on the Pope. Maybe he can get the Vatican to pay for the wall across the northern border of Mexico.

Great book called The Political Brain, that talks a lot about how folks' decisions can be influenced by emotion rather than reason.

I find it sad that Harry Reid (a buffoon if ever there was one) wasted no time in politicizing his death and the opening on the court.

But the Party of "No" has all but promised that they will not hold a confirmation hearing for any Obama nominee.

Pathetic.

Back to the humorous side with some memes that made me laugh. Are you out there thinline?
(the Bernie meme refers to old school leather stuff, think Ben and his 79 Mooney + wonky/nerdy. Ms. Clinton's meme is about a posh upscale hotel at a posh upscale resort, but out of touch with the real freeheelers.)
