To the Loser Goes the Spoils

There are more Nazis with power today than there were in the Nazi Party in Nazi Germany.

And they supposedly lost that war.

Which means there ought to be a neighborhood gas chamber at the corner of happy and healthy.

And now, today’s open thread.  Nazi Arizona and Nazi Utah vote today, they will presumably give Nazi Party primary wins to the Nazi Donald Trump and the Nazi Ted Cruz, respectively.  The former contest is winner take all and the latter is proportional, so if that’s how it goes, Trump will come out the mathematical winner.

Because arithmetic is fascist.

So far in AZ, “All Others” is ahead of Cruz for second place, as Ace is putting all the dropped out and vanity candidates in the “all others” category.”

Turnout, Arizona

Republicans

2008: 541,035
2012: 510,258
2016: 533,103

Democrats

2008: 455,635
2016: 408,926

Arizona was a rare state in 2008 when and where Republican Presidential Primary turnout was more than the Democrats.

Utah used primaries in 2008 and 2012 but is using caucuses this year, so no comparison.

Update

While R turnout was up a bit over 2012, it was down compared to 2008. But, in 2008, John McCain was running for President and on this ballot.

Politico calls AZ for Trump, WTA meaning he gets all 58 dels.

Since Cruz won Utah with a majority, he gets all 40 delegates.

Trump almost ran the table in Arizona with counties, but Ted Cruz won Graham County, a rural county in the southeast, one of only two AZ counties with Anglo names, and he won it by 4 votes or 0.1% of the total.

Bern’s only county in AZ was Coconino (Flagstaff et al), which is not a surprise.

I have an IL Republican political question.
In spite of voting exactly like a democrat 100% of the time and quite likely suffering from brain damage, Kirk won the primary.

The buzz that I have been hearing is that he will decide to retire due to health reasons and the IL R party will give that spot to someone else.

Have you heard anything about this?

I am afraid that makes too much sense. I know many people who vote for team R that will not vote for Kirk in the general election. If they ran some unknown crapweasel these people would probably vote for them. The IL R party seems bound and determined to pull defeat from the jaws of victory any time they can.

That gossip has been ubiquitous ever since Kirk got sick. And leave it to the IL R party, who foisted Alan Keyes on the state’s electorate the last time they were able to have this prerogative, and I think I can be safe in assuring you that they won’t pick someone like George Wallace.

They should ask Mike Ditka.
I think he learned his lesson last time.
My theory with Keyes was they wanted to loose so that they could (and did) say “I guess a conservative just can’t win in IL. It is democrat lite from here out”.

BTW I voted for Keys because I could tell 0bama was being pushed upon us by something bigger than the Chi town machine. Keyes’ people were at a gun show I was at right before the election. I meant to get over there and pick up some of their Obama Ben Lyin’ signs. I had no idea how useful those signs would have been in the future.
