So Ted Cruz just named Carly as his V.P. Pick giving me one of the “Hey, that would be great” tickets of my start of the race muse.
Yet now it is somehow pallid.
I wondered why…
It all comes down to Ted “gaming” the system. From the “dirty trick” of announcing Ben Carson was pulling out of the race, when he was not, to the “mining delegates” via insider games, to the more recent “partnership” with Kasich, where the apparent agreement was to split who put campaign efforts where, but Ted got on TV and said ~”All you Kasich voters, vote for me, that’s the deal” and Kasich had to go on TV and say ~”No, I’m not out of the race in Indiana, folks who want to vote for me ought to. I’m just campaigning more here.”
At what point does “work the system efficiently” cross over into “slimy political untrustworthy liar”?
It just all feeds into the perception of a slimy lawyer politician playing insider games and that whole “Lyin’ Ted” image.
Add in that neither Ted nor Carly comes across as “Nice Dad” or “Mom I Want” (my thesis is that folks vote for the Dad or Mom they would like running the place…) but rather both come across as cranky, manipulative, and angry…
And I’m left feeling unenthused.
So we have a choice between:
Lyin’ Ted and Cranky Carly
Crooked & Heartless Hillary
Kasich, who’s he? Nice guy, but finishing last.
Momly “easy” Bernie,
MILF wanna be… wants to give away everything and have Dad pay.
Bully Trump with Mussolini Tendencies
Really, that’s the best this nation has to offer?
So something is horridly wrong with the selection process when you end up here, having started wth such a large field of Good Folks With Clue.
Sadly, I’m reaching the point where I no longer care who wins… though I’d rather not have it be Hillary… Not 4 (or, shudder…8) more years of Obama Part Deux and Billy In The Pantry With The Maid…
Though it would be interesting to see Madam Hillary staff the white house with 100% submissive men and dare Billy Boy to “go there” ;-)
Part of me, the sick and twisted part, thinks it would be fascinating to see a Trump / Bernie ticket… THE two folks completely outside “acceptable” for both sides ;-) Yes, I’m in a bit of a “screw them all” mood… and I’d vote for that ticket just to watch folks in DC have their heads explode.
But, for now, it looks like a Hillary / Milquetoast (what, you think she will chose anyone but a submissive?) vs Trump / Nobody (what, you think any ‘somebody’ politician will accept being on a ticket with him and having that be their political epitaph?) race in the end.
Well, let the Soap Opera play on. Maybe we can have 2 convention fights and something good in the end. Yes, I’m dreaming.
