    This from David Brooks, long time conservative. This, in a nutshell, explains why the GOP base has hitched their short bus to Cruz and Trump. Disenchanted eLectorate always look for the biggest contrast to what they have. So the two slimiest, most obnoxious assholes would be the choice.

        Does this mean that there will be no more "kids table" at the next debate? Can't wait to see Huckabee on the big stage.

        • Huckabee quit before Iowa.

          Oops actually right after. Thought it was before.

            Aw shucks. That would have been fun. Is Carson the only representative of the befuddled candidates?

            Just watched a focus group of SC voters who all found Ted Cruz genuine and likable. Hate Trumps potty mouth. All evangelicals so their stupidity and naïveté is not surprising.

            • Ted Cruz has pretty much the most punchable face in politics atm. Not that I'd condone punching anyone.

              He's slimy. Trump is just a showman. He doesn't have any idea what he's doing other than entertaining. It's 100% empty demagoguery from him. "I'm gonna be the best 'Jobs President' God has ever created!"

              No one asks the follow up questions because our media is much more interested in the sporting event than the actual policy positions. Can you imagine asking Trump about the need to get KSA and Iran to sit down at the same table? He'd have no fucking answer except for something like, "I can make them do business. I know the best people in the world for sitting down at tables. Tremendous table sitting people, just the best!"

                And the low info voters eat his shit up.

                I'm waiting for someone with a bit of financial acumen to ask him if the paltry millions Daddy staked him with would have created a larger sum had it been invested in the market and ridden the S&P growth rather than what he has accumulated stumbling through his other stunts. Insults and profanities galore will spew from him.

                    My dad was sent to Charleston in 75 to start the first project on Kiawah Island. A real culture shock for someone that lived all his life "up north".

                    When I graduated in 75 from USF the only job offer was with the North Charleston PD. More than likely you saw a real sampling of those from the real South Carolina.

                    • I don't get people like that where all you have to do is mention Jesus once and all of a sudden you're a "good Christian" who is very likable. How can you be so simplistic in assessing people? They must be scammed constantly.
