Is there some reason Iowa has to be the place we start the primary/caucus season?

Yes, but pulling out with no Santorum?

If the Republican "establishment" wants to take down Trump, here is possibly their only hope: Gather up a few of the women he's been with over the years and convince them to conduct a sustained, unified campaign insulting his manhood.

Start off with a Playboy interview, where they discuss his shortcomings among a number of other topics. Don't want to make the strategy too obvious. Hope the culture picks up on it and ties it into the fledgling small hands meme. The party elite can take care of these ladies' lifestyle needs while they make the rounds of Stern and the late night guys. Maybe make an appearance on SNL in a skit about Trump overcompensating.

When the inevitable positive testimonials come in, the gals snidely counter that the yes-woman must not have much in the way of comparison.

If it gained steam, the topic would unmoor someone with his middle-school disposition and acute narcissism. I could see Trump losing focus on the campaign and perhaps even releasing to sex tape to prove his worthiness. Of course, that would probably only make him even more popular ... so, never mind.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

Did Rubio somehow stumble into winning Minnesota? He's becoming the establishment favorite with all the endorsements he's racking up, but it doesn't seem to be helping.

Cruz winning Kansas by a 2-1 margin is surprising.

Rubio and Kasich's numbers in each state still don't add up to second place anywhere. Where's the establishment money going to go in a Trump-Cruz contest?

A couple of the warmongering neocons have been talking about backing Hillary over either of those too, because they see her as more reliably blood-thirsty.

My twins had their birthday in January and are now registered to vote. The boy is sort of meh about the primary & doing his civic duty. But the girl is bouncing up and down about this. From the beginning in this cycle she's read everything and watched every debate. She's feeling the Bern on the Dem side, but remains undecided about the GOP field. I share all of this to remind the three of you that this crop of new voters are the same clowns who five or so years ago jammed small twigs into my door locks in a vain effort to gain access to the house. Future of America...

We watched the Megyn Kelly interview with Donald Trump last night because we're stupid, I guess. She needs to quit Fox News right now and become the next Barbara Walters. A chimp in a bowtie could've conducted a more interesting interview.

In other news, there might be an exciting reason to vote here in Hoosierville: The dildo governor who signed the anti-homo legislation that got the state all kinds of negative press last year is in a pretty decent race this fall. It turns out even a lot of the dipshits here who drive their Honda CRV's with "In God We Trust" license plates (complete with an American flag background ... this really is a thing) think the dude is a dildo.

That's good news. Pence has made public education in Indiana almost as crappy as it is in North Carolina.

Orlando Shooter called 911 to pledge allegiance to ISIS


I pledge allegiance

To the Islamic republic

In iraq (next door to Iran)


And to the beheadings,

Gang-rapes and torture,

Of all who aren't allah's fans


We'll hammer on homos,

Flip out over comics,

And wreck culture here and a afar


'cuz our imaginary friend

No love does he send

So thinkers' lives those shall we mar.

Checked the returns before heading to bed.

John Conyers is going back to Washington to drool on himself for another two years. Good for him.

Not pretending to know too much about this, but wouldn't the EpiPen argle bargle be nonexistent if the FDA could negotiate prices of prescription medication?
