Not that super Tuesday

The primary in five northeastern states are ho-hum no matter how cable news try to put lipstick on a pig

The pig is GOP candidate Donald Trump. Should I call Donald Trump a pig? Why not. Trump calls his opponents insulting names or engages in personal insults, such as his remarks yesterday that the eating habits of John Kaisch were disgusting. If Trump wants to talk disgusting, its definitely a case of Donald pot calling the Kaisch black. One will not have to search far and wide to find instances of The Donald engaging in the disgusting. There are so many instances that I will not take the time to direct readers to a link.

Likewise, one must need look far and wide to find a story that gives a chance to the alliance between Cruz and Kaisch. That is probably true but such a partnership working would undercut the talking head class and their Trump fixation.

Still, the networks play this “Super Tuesday” — every other Tuesday primary also was given such a moniker by cablet outlets — which is actually less than super.

As Washington Post columnist Philip Bump asserts about the remaining Republican candidates, “the three are not thoroughbreds, they are sloths.

The race has been and, even more so today, remains about process. The primary elections seem even less important than early in the campaigns. Delegates are the name of the game and there is no given that even delegates will be of that much importance, especially if Trump wins the delegate count.

Donald Trump has shown lately through his speeches and actions that his campaign is slowly running off the tracks. His alleged campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, was reduced in status after the accusations that he assaulted a reporert at a Trump rally. Paul Manafort had been picked to supposedly manage the GOP convention in Cleveland¬† this summer, yet Politico reports that Lewandowski was back in the saddle after attempts to make Trump look “presidential” were rejected by the candidate. CNN veteran political analyst John King says he has seen campaigns shuffle personnel during the years he has covered politics, dating back to his time as the Associated Press political correspondent.

Who knows what will really happen? I don’t expect we will know anything for certain until a Republican candidate is anointed in Cleveland.

Oh and as far as the Democratic contest, Hillary hasn’t had any real challenge as of late. Bernie Sanders and his campaign has seemingly run out of steam. Maybe he is just selling a vision at this point.¬† I am no Hillary fan but I don’t want a Republican to win the general election in November. I hope Sanders will soon feel he has sold that vision and help the Democrat ticket.
