Maybe the Republican Establishment Can’t Have It All

Given their failure to take down Donald Trump, is it time for GOP elites to let go of some cherished inward-facing policy priorities?

    Even more delicious is watching Fox News Channel lose their collective minds over this Trump walk-out.
    If there is any way you can watch FNC in Canada go ahead and flip it on.
    It’s akin to “Storm Watch 2016” with by the minute updates and all kinds of other silliness designed to lead the view to believe they know what they are talking about.

    “Trump hates wyminn”
    “Trump is AFRAID of Megyn Kelly!”
    “Trump is threatening Megyn Kelly!”

    Greg Gutfield removes all doubt that he’s a sanctimonious jack ass and a phoney baloney poser, as I have suspected for a while.
    This is an epic troll of titanic proportions.
    Trump you beautiful mutant, you punked them all!

    I would just Hate to see Him lose.

    Oh bullhockey. The GOP doesn’t have any “cherished inward-facing policy priorities”; they have government pensions to protect, and that is their entire ideology. They would rather see Hillary elected (or Bloomberg, or Sanders) than Trump, because Trump is a wildcard. In their perspective, it’s better to be an employed minority party in a rigged game than risk being thrown out in a revolt created by an outsider.

      The most appealing thing about Trump is that in addition to him campaigning for ten years in the popular culture as the star of The Apprentice is that he has fuck you money and is beholden to no one.
      The fact that he’d never set up a teleprompter in an elementary school classroom is just icing on the cake.

    • Is Cruz viable or is the narrative that he’s the real outsider the GOP insiders fear so much BS?

        Here’s the Cruz dilemma that I’ve faced in my own life.
        I went back to school in my late thirties because I didn’t want to be the guy trapped in a dead end career obsessing over the colour of the napkins, tablecloths and candles of someone’s wedding.
        I never gave a shit about that even if I was good at it.
        And I was really good at it.
        And it was Plan B.
        Once I got married and had kids Plan B worked for a while.
        Then, after getting thrown under the bus one too many times I figured out how to get back to Plan A and went for it.
        I thought I was going to mop the floor with those stupid kids and get all the scholarship money and all the summer job placements.
        I didn’t.
        There was one guy who was better than me.
        Any other year I would have won.
        But, not this time.
        He won and I took a four year detour to the hinterlands.
        I improved there.
        Cruz will, too.

    It’s time for the GOP to wither and die.
    The Dems, at least, reward their bass with phones, EBT’s and other goodies.
    The GOP gives nothing to it’s base but betrayal, derision and scorn.
