Except that Eisenhower actually ran for the nomination, didn't he? Today they're talking of parachuting in Paul Ryan or someone who hasn't done jack to win any goddamn 2016 primary! The GOP is the mother of all trainwrecks...

What's truly irritating is that you don't even have to ask the guy about his plans for education or healthcare or fuck all, really, because he doesn't have any ANYWAY. All those sad wimpy reporters at the so-called "debates" have to do is point out, printed facts in hand, that the shit-for-brains is LYING. And that's it. THAT'S IT. How fucking hard can it be?! I mean, they don't even have to research dick, just go to politifact.com and print the fucking thing! Jesus Fuck! I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!

Its a possible rumor that Steve Shelley will be swept in as the Republican candidate at the convention!

LifeDistortion 03.10.2016 03:15 AM

This election could truly be historic but not for the right reasons if both the RNC and DNC go against the people. Between the RNC freaking out about the possibility of Trump as their candidate and the Democrats facing the possibility of Sanders as theirs when all the elite Democrats have been pulling for Hillary, things are either going to get really interesting, or they're going to show the average American just how much these people truly don't give a shit about what the American voter wants. Will it change anything? The realist in me says no, but just imagine a Trump VS Sanders contest, for better or worse.

The cynical apathetic side of me has said for years that they wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire.

SuchFriendsAreDangerous 03.11.2016 12:01 AM

I said last year and yall can quote me that this election will be won by a rich, elitist, white man... Hillary it is then ;)

Don't I wish Sanders would DRUMPF him! Unfortunately, if we trust this vox.com article, it is just too damn unlikely. :(

http://www.vox.com/2016/3/10/1118990...anders-can-win

For what it's worth, Sanders won me over when he crapped on war criminal Henry Kissinger. NOBODY who's reached the level of political notoriety that Bernie has does it. When did Kissinger become an across-the-board "bipartisan elder statesman", anyway? Even Fareed Zakaria, who I usually like, quotes him regularly and interviews him as much as he can. Fuck all that! And since we're at it (sort of), fuck Nancy Reagan too! Just say YES!

This is not dissent, this is stalinism.

"Chicago community activist Quo Vadis said hundreds of protesters had positioned themselves in groups around the arena, and that they intend to demonstrate right after Trump takes the stage. Their goal, he said, is "for Donald to take the stage and to completely interrupt him. The plan is to shut Donald Trump all the way down."

Trump deserves to be shut all the way down. Now, in order not to fall into complete hypocrisy, I have to defend his right to speak horseshit after horseshit. But "Stalinism", gimme a break...

I don't dislike Bernie Sanders. He would probably be a fun guy to have a couple of beers with. But my youthful idealism has long since faded. To anyone who thinks Sanders has a chance in hell of being president, I give you these two words: George McGovern. The parallels are striking: Nixon was a vulnerable incumbent. But McGovern was seen as way too far to the left, and Sanders is even more extreme. Anyone who calls himself a socialist isn't going to be elected president, at least not at this juncture. In fact, assuming Trump really gets the GOP nomination and survives an assassin's bullet, I think he could actually beat Sanders--and that is a very scary thought. Hillary Clinton is far from perfect, but I think a lot of the GOP tirades against her are overblown and hypocritical. As for Bengazi and the email "scandal", these would have been one day stories had she been a Republican-- as to the former, an underling would have said "The Secretary Of State can't micromanage the huge number of US diplomatic locations" and "her private server is much more secure and efficient than the inefficient one the government uses" as to the latter, and it all would have been over. Yeah, her ill advised trade agreement support is a negative, and she's not exactly free of fat cat influence. But the lesser of two evils is a very valid concept. We know she won't appoint Scalia types to the SCOTUS, wage war on women's reproductive rights, and will seek to improve on the Affordable Care Act, etc. And IMO, of all the candidates, she's the only adult in the room. Plus, she'll have Bill's help when he's not chasing interns. So my vote will go to Hillary.

It was a Stalinistic tactic to disrupt meetings with violence and shouting or just plain obstructionism. When I used to hang out with anarchists in Berkeley thats what they'd call it when the Sparticus League or Communist Party people would show up at open organization meetings around preserving People's Park and just make it impossible to get anything done. Its curious this happened in Chicago - and just like Mark Rubio's penis talk, the MSM is blaming this on Trump, as if he organized the demonstrators himself.

Bro, i am surprised to see you diss the demonstrations outside. Trump didn't organize them but he definitely inspired them. Marching in the streets is as if not more potent a form of political speech and the political process as conventions, rallies, and elections. If Trump's supporters believe in their candidate the resistance will only further their resolve so it doesn't hurt him or them. What it DOES do is motivate, inspire, and rally the opposition to Trump.

America is a nation founded on demonstrations, marches, and even rioting. Don't fuck with a proven American tradition

Sorry to disappoint but "liberalism" reflects people's desire for social justice and proactive change. The naivete is obvious but it doesn't negate the sincerity neither the necessity. Conservativism is a dinosaur ideology from petrified reactionaries terrified of the prospects of losing their privilege. Fuck em all dinosaurs go extinct. And like Kurt Cobain said, "and then we will move into their homes."
