Does this mean that traditional voters count again?
The GOP’s Super Tuesday bloodbath: Dick Nixon counts the bodies
Rubio is the messy, embarrassing, unlamented death of Reaganism. From now on, check your wallet if someone tries selling it to you. The Whigs have more currency.
Hanging tonight’s loss solely on Rubio is like blaming the ventriloquist’s dummy when his jaw gets termites. There couldn’t be a worse outcome for McConnell, Priebus, and all the bastards who sat on their fat butts while Trump poked open wounds in every factory town from here to the Gulf. If you slip in blood this spring, blame them.
Cruz isn’t going anywhere. He’ll pitch tents, charm snakes, and attempt to part the Red Sea.
He’ll tell the Holy Rollers that God made Marco weak. “We love him anyway. But I’m the one who can fight for you.”
While the Super Tuesday votes continue to roll in, the presidential hopeful appears to be feeling confident. Some pundits actually consider Rubio’s second and third-place finishes promising. He did win Minnesota, after all. As the leading establishment candidate, Rubio rightfully considers himself the best candidate to defeat Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Only problem?
He has only won one state — and people on Twitter have caught on.
They would. The question of whether Rubio could defeat Clinton is an entirely different one from whether Clinton is beatable at all. Clinton is beatable if Americans turn away from progressivism, in which case it doesn’t matter as much who they elect.
Remember the fable of King Log and King Stork?:
The Frogs Desiring a King
The Frogs were living as happy as could be in a marshy swamp that just suited them; they went splashing about caring for nobody and nobody troubling with them. But some of them thought that this was not right, that they should have a king and a proper constitution, so they determined to send up a petition to Jove to give them what they wanted.
“Mighty Jove,” they cried, “send unto us a king that will rule over us and keep us in order.” Jove laughed at their croaking, and threw down into the swamp a huge Log, which came down plash into the swamp.
The Frogs were frightened out of their lives by the commotion made in their midst, and all rushed to the bank to look at the horrible monster; but after a time, seeing that it did not move, one or two of the boldest of them ventured out towards the Log, and even dared to touch it; still it did not move.
Then the greatest hero of the Frogs jumped upon the Log and commenced dancing up and down upon it, thereupon all the Frogs came and did the same; and for some time the Frogs went about their business every day without taking the slightest notice of their new King Log lying in their midst.
But this did not suit them, so they sent another petition to Jove, and said to him, “We want a real king; one that will really rule over us.”
Now this made Jove angry, so he sent among them a big Stork that soon set to work gobbling them all up. Then the Frogs repented when too late
Better no rule than cruel rule.
Most traditional working citizens will in fact be “gobbled up” by the progressives to whom they are no use, rather a hindrance. (Because machines and migrants can do the work, and if needed, living standards can fall “for the sake of the environment.”)
