Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Look At The Flowers, Jebby

And so, the Bush Crime Family slinks of into historical ignominy.  There hasn't been a winning Republican ticket without a Bush on it since 1972.  They represented the staid, moneyed establishment that really ran the GOP.  And now their "favorite" son slinks off in disgrace after losing to a short-fingered vulgarian, his protege and a man reviled by everyone who knows him.

The question becomes: what next?

With Bush out, where does his support go?  Presumably to Rubio, but Kasich remains relevant, I guess.

And when will Carson give up?   Presumably his support transfers to Cruz and Trump.

Trump did everything he could to alienate South Carolina Republicans, and he still won.

And so we are off to Nevada, as the Democrats move to South Carolina.

Hillary should begin to put a stranglehold on the delegate count, but the GOP field remains far from settled if perhaps a little clearer.
