    As for Sarahcuda, she’s still a milf and still makes the progs crazy, that’s all good. And she’d make a badass RNC chairman; shake those damn wingtips up and dump that damn Prius or whatever his name is.

    And she and the corn country gov might have just took TC down a notch so he’ll see he needs to be veep for 4 years to be ready for ’20. Of course he’s right about the gasohol and a lot of other stuff, but he ain’t quite ready for prime time; he can learn a lot about that from the Donald.

    Long game is that the Palin endorsement of Trump maybe enough to get the establishment repubs to back Cruz to stop Donald Windsock Trump (his political direction is whatever way the political winds blow his toupee.) I still see Ted as a better solution set than Trump.

    As to being better for prime time nobody is going to deal with Windsock because he will change directions in a heartbeat if the winds blow that way.

    Deal makers stand their position and get a deal that is within that position. it may not be perfect but it is better than being sold out. Anybody remember what the repubs have been doing to us for the last 4 years.

      “…the Palin endorsement of Trump maybe enough to get the establishment repubs to back Cruz…”

      So, how ironic is this? the Palin endorsement of Trump maybe enough to get the establishment repubs to back Cruz

      Neither is true of course; those wingtips are scared shitless of both of them. Funny as hell though. 😉

        That’s actually pretty brutal. First potentially successful attack I’ve seen on Trump. (And if he’d thought of it then, it would have mattered a lot more in the debate than his “New York Values” comment.)

      • January 20, 2016 at 5:17 pm

        No harm no foul, DT can just ask Prius, Ryano and the nitwit SC gov from Punjab (call me Nikki!) if he gets their endorsements and watch them turn blue…

        Actually a major backfire for TC methinks, he needs to think before yapping if he wants to be vice, exactly my point about needing time to marinate.

      • January 20, 2016 at 6:39 pm

        Might not work. Bob Dole just gave a backhanded endorsement to Trump (over Cruz).

  • January 20, 2016 at 12:38 am

    Hard to see how it’s a good thing for the wingtips who have sold us out for two cycles to get behind Ted as a compromise…more likely the kiss of death for him.

    As for political winds, hell I was once a Jimmy Carter supporter; intelligent people learn and change when presented with logic, reason, and hard facts.

    And deal making? I do not think anyone wants to go head to head with the dude who perfected the art of it. No doubt that’s what happened with Sarah, we’ll see where she ends up in a Trump admin. Same for little ell Rand Paul, can you imagine a better choice for head of the department of getting rid of departments? He’s putting together a team, and we best all hope it’s a winner.

    • January 20, 2016 at 12:50 am

      I’ve got a short-list of dream administration appointments. I’d love to see John Bolton as Secretary of State. I expect he’d go in there with a big axe and fire a lot of career bureaucrats.

      I’d also like to see Ann Coulter as White House Press Secretary. That would only last a couple of weeks though, because after that all the White House press corp would have died of apoplexy.

    Getting close to going all Dukakis there; he’s awesome on 2A and a LOT of other issues, but the boy needs time to marinate. Can’t imagine DT doing facepaint no matter which way the wind’s blowing.

    And further to the team-building and deal-making, Cruz in second chair for four years with a private plan to take the top of the ticket after the dismantling of the disaster of the last twelve (yes, twelve) would be a great one, paving the way for the ’20’s to be my childrens’ version of the 80’s (please God).

    Y’know, I’ve commented on it before but I think it bears repeating today: Trump is an incredible political operator – yet gets no recognition for it. Someone assails him and he immediately ripostes in a telling and disabling way.

    In the heating competition between Cruz and Trump, the Senator starts attacking him for not being a “real” conservative. (He certainly doesn’t appear to approach things from a high ideological standpoint – certainly not in the way that I’d prefer, but Reagan isn’t available anymore…) Days later, Trump trots out Tea Party standard-bearer Sarah Palin and neatly undercuts Cruz’s attack without devolving into a “Yes I am”-“No you’re not” argument.

    And that’s not even to mention that he made Hillary Clinton shut up and back down. When has that ever happened before?

    Whatever comes of this campaign season, this is an impressive performance to watch.

      The problem is that as the word is used now it really does’t mean “afraid” but disapproving of homosexuals. I have never met any man who was genuily fearful of faggots. In my experience most hetero males find homosexual behavior so repugnant that they try to minimize any contact with homosexuals. The “phobia” aspect is a sobriquet applied by the left to explain that repugnance. It is an attempt to control the narriative so as to make a normal behavior seem abnormal and pathological. It is part of the “new speak” PC process described by Orwell so many years ago.

      In the TC facepaint commercial this weekend, apparently after displaying a nice mound of feathered victims, one of those bearded dudes out of La. will say of Ted, “if you’re gonna be one of us, you gotta be able to shoot a duck and make a good duck gumbo…Ted Cruz is one of us!”

  • January 20, 2016 at 8:21 am

    Truth always wills out and Sam is a lucky woman.

    This came in an email and has a different slant on the why of DT:

    You’ve been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons. Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement. You want them gone
    immediately so you hire a guy. A pro. You don’t care if the guy smells,
    you need those raccoons gone pronto and he’s the guy to do it! You don’t care if the guy swears, you don’t care if he’s an alcoholic, you don’t
    care how many times he’s been married, you don’t care if he voted for
    Obama, you don’t care if he has plumber’s crack…you simply want those
    raccoons gone! You want your problem fixed! He’s the guy. He’s the best. Period.
    That’s why Trump. Yes he’s a bit of an ass, yes he’s an egomaniac, but you don’t care. The country is a mess because politicians suck, the Republican Party is two-faced & gutless, illegal’s are everywhere. You want it all fixed!

    You don’t care that Trump is crude, you don’t care that he insults people, you don’t care that he had been friendly with Hillary, you don’t care that he has changed positions, you don’t care that he’s been married 3 times, you don’t care that he fights with Megyn Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell, you don’t care that he doesn’t know the name of some Muslin terrorist,…this country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegal’s, we are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hamid is a special group with special rights to a point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in; “AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED” and Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what the people want.

    You’re sick of politicians, sick of the Democratic Party, Republican Party, and sick of illegal’s. You just want this thing fixed. Trump may not be a saint, but doesn’t have lobbyist money holding him, he doesn’t have political correctness restraining him, all you know is that he has been very successful, a good negotiator, he has built a lot of things, and he’s also not a politician, he’s not a cowardly politician.
    And he says he’ll fix it.
    You don’t care if the guy has bad hair.
    You just want those raccoons gone.
    Out of your house.

  • January 20, 2016 at 9:44 am

    I am seriously disappointed with Sarah. Really Trump over Cruz? Cruz is the embodiment of the Tea-Party.

    My hope was that Trump would go to Cruz with “the Deal”. “Look Ted..may I call you Ted? OK. You run as my VP. Now just listen. See I will get bored with this whole President thing, since I won’t be able to Fire Congress. So, I’ll serve 2years and a couple of days, then resign. Then you can finish my term, and run for two of your own. That will give you 10 years to straighten this country out…It will be Hugggeee!”

    If in fact winDsock is already cutting cabinet deals for endorsements, is the SarahCuda a sell out? My gun toting/conservative spousal unit hates her. Why I don’t know but if anything put a nail in winDsock’s ticket that was it. While being on the fence before, she is now “Totally for Ted.” I found this out during some pillow speak last night. She spoke I listened, no rebuttals were entertained. Politics does make the strangest bedfellows.

    I know Trumps a bit “off”, but Sarah P I think shes pure concentrated nut butter. Woman scares me in the visceral way that happens when you find out you done stuck your dick in crazy.
    I never discount my gut feelings in these things. Saved my ass in the Army and Navy- and saved my ass as a kid during coups in Brazil and Peru.
    I think Trumps gonna gather in the troops/cabinet early – if naught to force the others to show who they favor so he can destroy them as part of the system. trump will just say, “What? I’m famous for saying, ‘You’re Fired.’ Of course I can change my picks…now about their’s…let me just say………..”

    I still think he’s a NYC Democrat who’s figured that if he’s a bit more conservative he can win big. That’s what matters to him. If he gets ignored or fails in primaries, he’ll take his game and back Hilary big time.

    He owes clintons big for certain laws and they him for donations…

    What we need for President is a no nonsense dwarf (classic D&D) Hammer in hand ready to wade in and adjust kneecaps until everything is as it should be.

    Our biggest problem isn’t at top, it’s the entire system that ensures everyone gets a turn at top and keeps them and their cronies in power. That needs to be gutted. Logrolling is what killed GOP. THey assumed they’d always have certain votes, instead of adjusting and moving out – stretching to reach more and more voters.

    My first reaction was heartbreak. As in a freshly minted one-handed Luke Skywalker yelling NOOOOOOO!!!

    After I got over the shock, I realized that either Trump or Cruz was going to drive everyone batshit crazy with a realized win in November. While my preference was Cruz, I would accept Trump as an alternative to Clinton, Sanders, Bush, etc.

    If we can’t outright turn around and away from the abyss, we can at least slow down the approach until we can get someone in office capable of the 180 degree turn.

    It hacks me off to no end that we have to do things the hard way rather than the smart way.
