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.

Go Home, Little Marco

Rubio is a toast. His presence in the race benefits Trump most of all, as it divides the anti-Trump vote.  The problem is that if he drops out, it probably benefits Cruz, because Kasich simply isn't going to win the nomination, despite being the only candidate I could see becoming president.  Or at least becoming president and NOT dragging the US into a crisis that it might not recover from.

The primary illogic of #NeverTrump is that the only person poised to capitalize on Trump losing the nomination is Ted Cruz, and he's arguably more detestable than Trump.

So, Mini-Mussolini or the Zodiac Killer?  What's YOUR choice, 'Murica?
