Manafort 2016

But still there's lots of reason for doom

James D

Insty posted this link earlier today:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/food-and-drink/drinks/the-day-i-tried-to-match-churchill-drink-for-drink/

I hadn't realized quite how fond of drink Churchill was.

42,000 bottles of champagne in his lifetime? That's 1.5 bottles, every single day, from age 12 until his death. And that's not even counting everything ELSE he drank on apparently a daily basis.

How on earth did the man survive to 90 years old?

NK

Trump has dumped the Toady and is no longer acting punk ass? TK won't like this turn of events.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Michael Barone; Trump can’t break the Republican Party.

centralcal

Donald goes all boring and establishment.

I am sure it is only temporary, until he can be his "own boss" again one day.

Doom-- yuuuuuge dooooom.

Dave (in MA)

Saw on Insty that Jackson's getting booted off the double sawbuck in favor of Harriet Tubman.

I'll be happy to take custody of as many of the out-of-favor notes as they want to send me.

lyle

from age 12 until his death

How do we know he waited until age 12 to start in on the imbibing? :)

Porchlight

I love Barone but I don't think I agree with him. So many people took the red pill this cycle. We will see.

And there's another book that takes a look of churchill's finances going around.

buccaneer morgan

Yes they seem to have been possessed by hive or myriad.

lyle

As to that 1:25 link, Insty's Sarah Hoyt reports that Moochelle made these remarks while in Argentina. Hoyt makes a reference to a black hole in her post and proclaims the term as NOT racist. I say: not yet, anyway...

Dr. Eric Walsh, a renowned public health expert who also serves as a lay minister, has filed a federal lawsuit against the Georgia Department of Public Health alleging he was terminated for delivering sermons on issues ranging from homosexuality to evolution.

Sorry, pal. Your kind of religion isn't as sacrosanct as a certain other kind of religion...

He was a force of mature, every generation or two, there is one like him or the iron lady, most of the time it's dross.

Appalled

Appalled is thorough naive about what the democrats have done just in last half dozen years

Not naive at all. Ordinarily, you would not find someone with my policy preferences supporting folks like Walker and Cruz.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

It's about time we removed all racist Democrats from our money...and elective offices...and society in general.

Miss Marple

Harriet Tubman was a Republican..

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I was referring to Jackson.

I do consider it appropriate that, given the state of the country, a woman born into slavery is on our currency.

Miss Marple

Ignatz,

I knew what you're u meant. I should have explained that I found it ironic when they wanted a black and a woman, they chose someone who considered herself a Republican. Don't know if she ever got to vote, though.

Porchlight

Gun-toting Republican, even.

matt

So now with the Tubman twenty they can nail you for racism and sexism if you decide to use 10's instead.

Never was a Jackson fan, but I think MLK or maybe Frederick Douglas would have been better choices.

Porchlight

I think it was always going to be a woman. Part of the "pave the way for Hillary" 2016 action plan.

Porchlight

And since Hillary needs to shore up AA votes...

"42,000 bottles of champagne in his lifetime? That's 1.5 bottles, every single day, from age 12 until his death. "

For some reason the name "Wilt Chamberlain" popped into my head.

http://patterico.com/2016/04/20/prediction-ted-cruz-will-be-president/

Not if the WSJ has anthing to say about it:

http://www.wsj.com/articles/clintons-negative-majority-1461106609

All of which means Republicans should be poised to retake the White House in November if they nominate someone remotely tolerable. Yet they may not. Donald Trump reinforced his GOP front-runner status Tuesday with a blowout victory in his home state of New York, but his negative rating in the WSJ/NBC survey is an astounding 65%. Ted Cruz is disliked by 49%, though he’s less well known, with 21% having a neutral view. The Texan finished a distant third in New York to John Kasich.

Hard to believe, but Messrs. Trump and Cruz may be the only two Republicans who could lose to Hillary Clinton.

Come back, Jeb! All is forgiven! Or maybe you, Marco! Sob! :)

lyle

In lieu of The Daily Wretchard, he's your Daily Sultan Knish:

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/2016/04/the-fallacy-of-focusing-on-islamic.html

Radicalization comes packaged with a set of local grievances and explanations. It contends that all Muslim terrorism is a response to local conditions and that we are responsible for those conditions. Even though the “radicalization” is Islamic, it denies that Islam plays a positive role as a Jihadist goal. Instead, like Halal liquor or hashish, it’s what Muslims turn to when they have been disappointed in the West or in their own governments. Islam is just what happens when a Belgian Muslim can’t get a job.

[snip]

Radicalization favors local explanations. But those local explanations don’t add up nationally or globally. Europe spends a fortune on social services and yet Muslim terrorism has only grown worse. Other immigrant minorities in Europe have lower unemployment rates and aren’t blowing things up.

Removing Muslim dictators in the Arab Spring didn’t lower terrorism; it vastly increased the power and influence of Islamic terror groups. Nor have changes in American foreign policy and greater outreach lowered Islamic terrorism. If anything the scale of the problem seems to have only become more severe.

So London is going to go from Red Ken to right-wing intellectual Boris Johson to Sadiq Khan, whom Cameron has accused of being sympathetic to ISIS. Just to give you and idea of how London has changed and it wouldn't surprise me to see a Muslim mayor of NYC in the next 10 years.

National Enquirer has a new scandal.

Cruz gave a press conference about how he is really winning.

Trump in Indy is back to calling him Lyin' Ted.

Mississippi is threatening both Cruz and Trump supporters to accept establishment delegates or they will have police throw them out of the convention.

As I say, this year there was really no one else to challenge Hillary, The Inevitable. Oh, there was Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland. Yet he had no natural constituency even in today’s Democratic Party that was large enough to give him a chance. For a while it looked like he would run as a nudist, but there are simply not enough nudists in the Democratic Party at this point. Possibly he would have been a stronger candidate if he run as a vegetarian or a vegetarian nudist, but Martin had been photographed too often eating meat. My guess is he ate raw meat. He is that kind of he-man guy.

Thus obviating the chance for another deep, subservient bow to Saudi King by King Putt.

NK

First Obummer sided with Iran and MB to accelerate overthrowing the House of Saud, now when he is halfway out of the door, he is embarrassing them by releasing the 9/11 info about Saudi Salafists aiding the hijackers, despite the Saudis assisting with the GWOT from 2001-2009. Not greeting Obummer is the least worst thing the Saudis will do to him.

narciso

ironically according to robert lacey's account, the sauds felt disrespected by W, now they know better,

so the dog that doesn't bark is how after all the hrumfing over the san bernardino iphone, it turns out it's 'sound and fury' signifying nothing' or words to that effect,

Repubs will not be winning Maryland Connecticut or New York in November.
Wins here do not predict the future because they are not swing states
Trump was beaten in Ohio,Colorado,Wisconsin,Iowa and Minnesota and Rubio came close in Virginia.
All are swing states
Trump did win Florida.

The Republican party is in shambles, pretty much no matter what happens. Who's to blame?
a) Trump
b) Bush (any or all)
c) Obama
d) they shouted out who killed the GOP, when after all it was you and me
