A Farce in the Crowd

So, here's who made the the cut:
Businessman Donald Trump
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee
Former surgeon Ben Carson
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie
Ohio Gov. John Kasich
Or, put another way, three former governors, one sitting governor, one former US senator, one sitting US senator and the only woman in the field were aced out of starting positions at the Republican Goat Rodeo by a revival tent huckster, an openly batshit doctor and a thug-tempered carnival barker with a comb-over.

Congratulations, GOP.  I'm sure, somewhere in the Great Beyond, Abraham Lincoln and Dwight Eisenhower are looking down upon you...

...and trying to figure a way to nuke the entire party from orbit.

It's the only way to be sure.

Perhaps this is the form the nuking from orbit is taking; less satisfying perhaps, but less radioactive.

Can't thank you enough for the Cretors popcorn recommend for the
Great Goat Roping. That Chicago Mix is very tasty.

Awww, Piyush didn't make the cut. He must be so disappointed.

Off-topic: Joseph Cannon advises against installing Windows 10.

@Ivory Bill Woodpecker: Cannon's a conspiracy nut. He wasn't throughout the Bush II years, but after Obama's win the man's cheese just slipped right off his cracker. Reading his site now is like looking at a left-leaning version of InfoWars.

When it comes to Windows 10, I'll trust actual experts, not the sky-is-falling-NSA!! types.

Whatever, Mac, but even if Microsoft is a giant corporation which is actually honest (sh'yeah, right), there remains the unsatisfactory nature of Win10.

I did install Win10. It sucked like the surface gravity of a neutron star. I went back to Win7 the next day.

Enjoy your Panopticon State and its masters, the corporations. (Capital is Sauron; Uncle Sam is merely the Lord of the Nazgul.)
