Top Picks - Capture Arkansas

EDITORIAL: For Marco Rubio

And, for that matter, John Kasich

This article was published February 26, 2016 at 2:02 a.m.

Somebody we know said last weekend that Bernie Sanders would never become the nominee for the Democrats this presidential election season. Not going to happen. Don't worry about it. If something was to happen to Hillary Clinton, legally, and she decided she had more important things to worry about than the presidency, then the Democratic leadership would go to a brokered convention. Joe Biden and John Kerry would then decide which place to take on The Ticket, and the party would go on from there.

Note that Republicans ultimately put aside ideology and settle on the candidate they believe is most likely to win a general election. Remember John McCain and Mitt Romney? Jeb Bush was supposed to be the one, but that last name of his just turned people off. Wonder if it had anything to do with the last president named Bush. Anyway, now we know who the two candidates will be, Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton. What is most amazing to me is that in this election, the Republicans will be running the non-white, child-of-immigrants in Rubio (both Cuban parents were not citizens when he was born in America), and the Democrats will be running a white candidate with a long lineage of American forbears. What a change from the last election.

Notice the phrase "Thinking Republicans"! It is like my grandson asking me --- are there unicorns? [ you ever see one?]
Notice John Kasich & his position in the primary race! Notice John Kasich & his position in polling with the repugnant party!

If a equals b , and b equals c, then a equals C.

Enough said.

PS- Surely the ADG is not asking we descend into failed ideas again like when the paper supported the enormous disaster of supporting the great and powerful "W" . We know he tried to destroy civilization here in USA and came close , but he did about as much damage to USA domestically and otherwise as you could imagine in 8 years.

PS2: what about that position of the repugnant party on children born on USA soil with that dang constitution requirement on citizenship? Oh, I remember they are not just repugnant but hypocrites!

It's sort of discordant, though, to hear to such old ideas come out of the young pipsqueak's mouth.

So, Charles, you and your comrades MO is to silence anyone who disagrees with you? Typical compassionate liberal.

So the ADG has decided the election. Why vote?

OITS, we are not silenced.
Rubio, Cruz and Trump walk into a bar.
Bartender looks at them and says, "Is this some kind of joke?"
Bernie Sanders walks into a bar with a pork pie on his head. The barman asks, "Why are you wearing a pork pie on your head?"
Bernie replies, "It's a family tradition. We always wear pork pies on our heads on Tuesday."
The barman remarks, "But it's Wednesday."
Sheepishly, Bernie says, "Man, I must look like a real fool."
Bill Clinton walks into a bar and asks for a beer. He chugs it, looks into his pocket and asks for another beer. He chugs that beer, looks into his pocket and asks for another.
Bill does this a few more times until the bartender asks, "How come you ask for a beer, chug it, then look in your pocket?"
Clinton says, "Because there is a picture of my wife in my pocket and I'm gonna keep drinking till she looks good enough for me to go home."

Now, Freud would interpret that joke as suggesting slak is hot for Hillary.
Or he might say, sometimes a bad joke is just a bad joke.

Are the Koch brothers getting ready to buy the ADG?

Because the Democrat primary has been rigged from the beginning for Mrs. Clinton (Superdelegates, HELLO), it's a waste of breath to discuss Bernie Sanders in the general election. It's most logical to see how Marco Rubio handily defeats Mrs. Clinton as John Brummett most adequately explained the other day. It's just as logical to see how Donald Trump wins in November as well. Establishment politicians and their sycophants in the media (if the shoe fits, ADG, wear it) will bemoan a Trump candidacy because they are far removed from the Main Street America. Everyday conservatives would crawl over broken glass on their hands and knees to vote against Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump is already pulling away precious black votes and only an idiot would believe Hillary will replicate the black turn out of BH Obama. Young people will welcome Trump's attacks on Wall Street and his nonstop mention of that distasteful affair with Hillary and Wall Street payola/speaking fees.
The limousine Republicans can whine about Trump all they want - they and their scope of influence amount to about .0001% of the vote. Be it Trump or Rubio or Kasich or Cruz it matters not. Hillary Dianne Rodham Clinton is simply unelectable in the general election.
