Power of Snark

St. Louis County

I snarked six days ago:

Well, forget about that.

These two non-entities are obviously cannibalizing themselves out of the race, even though it’s really questionable to think that they were ever in the race.  As you can read, Dixon decided yesterday, but I didn’t find out until this morning, to throw in the towel.  So, we are down to what was reality all along, that only Kindercare and Hanaway are credible, and unless either one of them disavows RTW, Koster can start measuring for drapes.

Otherwise, the only way these two can kiss and make up is if Brunner sends Greitens a box of handwipe bottles for Christmas.

And also, pray tell, why did they even want to meet at the Starbucks on Euclid and Maryland?  When the Coffee Cartel, right across the street, is way better and lighter on your wallet?  On second thought, Greitens should lay off the caffeine for awhile.

Trump Goes There

24 11 2015


Fit, meet shan:

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is calling out Hillary Clinton for supporting a protective border wall around Israel while also opposing a protective wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Oy vey!

Trump is about to find out that hypocrisy is policy.

Columbus, Ohio

Wait’ll BLM finds out who founded PP and why.

But that won’t matter until KKKrazy Glue loses its adhesiveness.

I thought the problem with Trump is that he is pro-abortion.

Thinking Past the Sale, Again

We’ll sit here and argue about just how many Muslims in New Jersey cheered 9/11 on the day of 9/11, whether Trump actually saw them or not, or precisely how many he did see doing that, or if he’s being truthfully hyperbolic.

The point remains, the concept of Muslims cheering 9/11 is getting out there and being put on the table.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered?

The leading Republican Presidential candidate leads the second place candidate by a slightly higher margin among women than men, has a huge lead among moderates but only a slight lead among very conservatives, but is not leading among evangelicals.

Leading the pack, on the backs of moderates and he’s doing it in spite of evangelicals.

The Republican establishment ought to be eating out of this guy’s lap.

Instead, they want to pump hot lead through his skull, or rather, they hope someone else will do it.

The reason is for another polling item:  The front runner has a 21 point lead among non-college whites but only two point lead among anyone with a college degree.

This means the non-evangelical moderates who love the front runner and who are making him the front runner aren’t urban(e) social issue non-conservatives, but working middle class blue to gray collar whites.

Like I wrote here two months ago, the front runner is proving that the party establishment was correct on the need to moderate, but dead wrong on what needed to be moderated and who would be attracted in earnest.

This data also made me figure out precisely why people who want no part of evangelicals or the Magic Negro were peddling the Magic Negro to evangelicals — To keep them away from Trump so that this may cost him a few early states, in the hopes that this trips him up, gets him discouraged, and gets him to drop out.  When in reality, evangelicals are easy pickings for Trump otherwise.  I knew that Magic Negro was an anti-Trump foil; I just didn’t know precisely how until today.  And as far as early states go?  Remember, in 1992, among Democrats, Bill Clinton lost eleven of the first twelve contests.  These things are marathons, not sprints.


Denial In this Mirror is More Distant Than It Seems

23 11 2015

Washington, D.C.

Cillizza starts with:

It has become damn close to religion in Washington to assume that Donald Trump will, at some point not too far from now, flame out of the presidential race — that he will start losing altitude in polls, get sick of the whole thing and return to the safe sinecure of Trump Inc.

And the rest of it is him warning Beltway cucks to get past their denial.  He also noted that Magic Negro was just a blip, Big Ricky and Little Ricky have poll numbers that don’t justify all the talk about them, and Jeb! is a non-entity.

But, like I said a short while ago here, this assumption, that Trump cannot possibly be the nominee, because he’ll either voluntarily quit, reveal his whole “scam,” say something extraordinarily stupid, people will get tired of him, circumstances will make people want someone with more “gravitas,” (or worse, the eliminationism will work), is a fundamental scaffolding behind a lot of beltway and conventional wisdom ink spilled about this race.

Thinking Past the Sale

“Thinking past the sale.”

While we’re hammerwocking over the possible veracity of the stats and the credibility of those who assembled them, the fundamental base message of black on white violent crime is being assumed and accepted by those who are otherwise nitpicking.
