Monday Morning QBing (14 Mar 16)

How are enjoying the 2016 presidential election so far?  Seems like a bit of a conundrum.  So let’s take a quick review of the events so far…..

On the Republican side, 17 people decided to run for office (Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz, Rep. Marco Rubio, Gov. John Kasich, Dr. Ben Carson, Gov. Jeb Bush, Sen. Rand Paul, Gov. Chris Christie, Gov. Mike Huckabee,  Carly Fiorina, Sen. Rick Santorum, Gov. Jim Gilmore, Gov. Rick Perry, Gov. Scott Walker, Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Lindsay Graham, & Gov. George Pataki.

On the Democrat side, 5-ish people decided to run for office (Senator & former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Gov. Mike O’Malley, Sen. Jim Webb, and Gov. Lincoln Chafee)  [as a side note several other people did/are run[ning] as well but for purposes of practicality were not included here)

So lots of experience in government affairs, 8 members of Congress (current or former), 11 Governors, 2 CEOs, and a doctor.  {anyone else hear the 12 days of Christmas in their head too?}

Well it is now down to hyperTeflon Hillary who has a commanding lead (thanks to super-delegates) and “Feel the bern” Sanders, on the democrat side.

On the Republican side, it is populist churl Donald Trump, conservative and most definitely a lawyer Ted Cruz, former tea party darling and now devoted establishment marionette Marco Rubio, and more vanilla than vanilla John Kasich.

If you believe some of the blogs it seems a bunch of power player tech CEOs, big wig Democrat and big wig Republicans met on a nice little resort off of Georgia to plot against The Donald.  Now even if they were meeting to discuss this year’s secret Santa, seriously people, allegedly the brains of a nation all get together, that doesn’t seem suspicious at all.  Now I am not one for “conspiracy theories”, OK I love reading all the crazy ass shit people come up with, my personal favorite is the one about John Kerry being a lizard dude, tbh I don’t really get the whole thing but, IF anyone is a lizard dude, John Kerry is totally it.  I kinda want someone to sneak into one of his press conferences with a big bag of flies and release them, the truth would come out then.  Tongue smacks everywhere is a dead give-away for lizard dudes, I’m pretty sure.

Where were we, oh yes, the election, ok so Hillary looks to be the Democrat nominee, unless Sanders can break out a can of whip ass or you know Hillary gets arrested/charged whatever.

On the Republican side looks like civil war is brewing Trump on one side and the GOP establishment on the other, well with a big help from the Democrats.  So if Hillary is worried about running against Trump wouldn’t she be dogging on Cruz, Rubio, or you know Sanders?

Rumors have it that Moveon.org is behind the anti-Trump protesters.  Several have been seen with Bernie Sanders signs and BLM shirts.  One completely delusional young man also rushed the stage at a Trump rally.  No doubt more violence is on the horizon for Trump rallies not because of Trump supporters but because of crazed and/or paid operatives.

Poor Hillary has a new issue, after asking where Bernie Sanders was when she tried to fix the health care system twenty years ago, unfortunately for her, a picture showed up showing good old Bernie standing behind her.  So either Hillary is a pathological liar (sniper fire in Bosnia) or perhaps age has dimmed her memory.

Hillary

Well that is enough random thoughts for the day (early morning).  Just remember to be safe, take care of yourselves and help promote civility and civilization.
