    The Match Cut 2015/2016 Presidential Dog and Pony Show

    I can't help myself, I've been reading a lot about the election so far, and, sure, it's all BS and vaporous puff pieces and repackaged press releases and stupid speculation, but it's also been riveting to me for some sick reason. The biggest thing was the mood whiplash of knowing nothing about Carly Fiorina, watching her light up the first debate, and then actually listening to her on the second one and being kinda very horrified.

    Also, I think per the thread title every post should feature a dog, a pony, or both.

    Given the choices we have this year (Bernie won't make the cut), now, more than ever, the only ethical and socially just vote would be for NONE OF THE ABOVE.

    I am voting Sanders regardless of whether he gets the nomination or not.

    I could justify voting for any of the Democrats. The top tier GOP ones all suck something fierce.

    This new stuff about Ben Carson and the pyramids is just the thing this race needs.

    I'd do a list of all the candidates but I really don't have enough spots for last place/these people are bloody crazy.

    Trump put Carson on notice last night, suggesting that his knife story was bull by getting away from his podium and futzing with his belt... along with comparing Carson's pathology/disease to child molestation... and wondering aloud just how stupid Iowans are... in Iowa.

    Will this start to deflate the balloon? It could.

    This just means that someone else will take Iowa. Knowing how crazy the GOP party is here my money is on someone like Rubio pulling a surprise upset.

    PS: My worst fear is that Cruz wins Iowa.

    It's hard to think about who could possibly win Iowa and NOT confirm that the GOP party is completely crazy. It's really just gradations of crazy at this point.

    Speaking of gradations of crazy, Trump supporting a Muslim registry should probably be getting more blowback, but after 70 years of everybody everywhere comparing everything to Hitler, something that legitimately merits comparison to Hitler probably won't get the attention it demands.

    The crazy continues to pile up. Gotta love Carlson going full stupid until you realize that he's supposed to be a legit presidential candidate.

    Trump leveled up his troll game today with the no Muslim immigrants thing - must've been feeling the heat from Cruz's rising poll numbers.

    Nostalgic for the days when calling someone a “fascist demagogue” in US politics was a hyperbolic insult.

    It'll swing back. I'm mostly convinced that Trump is a stalking horse for either the right or the left (which one, I can't quite figure).

    The bigger problem is next to Trump's rhetoric, things like no-fly lists, black sites, drone attacks, carpet bombing, busted encryption, and NSA metadata all look like moderate positions.

    Longer term, that's bad. Really bad.

    Don't blame me. I'm voting for Bernie.

    Also Ted Cruz having his birth certificate questioned makes me smile. Suck on that GOP assholes.

    This Trump thing is one of the weirdest political events of my lifetime. I can't decide if Trump is a billionaire that feels slighted by other (more wealthy) billionaires (George Soros, Sheldon Adelson, the Koch Brothers, whoever runs Goldman Sachs) and wants to stick it to them for some personal reasons, or if he is, like Irish says, a "stalking horse" presumably for Hillary Clinton, but perhaps for other nefarious people, who knows? This whole thing is deeply bizarre.

    I choose to take him at face value. He's a media-savvy bigoted bully shithead who wants to be president to satisfy his unquenchable egomania.
