Clinton is pretty shitty, too.  Maybe he could pull off a squeaker...

Are you saying they are NOT what they look like? Which candidates you had in mind?

Yes. Honestly, it's fairly shocking. Until yesterday I was still in the camp of people that figured a Trump nomination couldn't possibly happen, but even if it did the establishment figures and party would forgo endorsing him to save face for the future. But as soon as Christie endorsed him (who's under no urgency to make an endorsement now from what I can tell, unless he wants on the ticket) it's indicative of the fact that the party now sees Trump as the overwhelming favorite, and their subsequent need to give his candidacy some credibility via endorsements, particularly from "reasonable" people who aren't a part of the Christian right. If the GOP really thought they could take Trump's legs out from underneath him, Christie wouldn't be endorsing him.

I really think it is a big deal.

It's unfortunate this whole situation has destroyed any remaining faith I had in American voters, because it's sure as hell restoring my faith in reckless bravado.

Surprisingly good read and he starts off not name calling but rather explaining why some folks are behind the hairpiece.

GOP establishment realizes that smurf boi Rubio isn't going anywhere so they're going to feign party unity behind tRump but they're really flipping to HRC.
