The Hungry for Power Games - another one bites the dust

I would have bet on Scott Walker, if I'd had to bet on the Republican primary. He seemed to have the Koch brothers backing him - and other billionaires, too. And he was a right-wing loon governing a rather blue state. How did that happen, if he wasn't electable?

Oh, well. Who could have predicted Donald Trump?

This is the second drop-out in the past week or so. (At this rate, they'll all be gone in a few years, huh?) Maybe I should post Stephen Colbert's tribute to Rick Perry, too, since this seems to have become a series...

I suppose they won't all drop out, huh? Too bad. This is the party of Abraham Lincoln, after all, and the party of Teddy Roosevelt.

Well, no, it isn't. This is actually the party of Strom Thurmond. It's the Dixiecrat Party in GOP clothing. They did that to themselves with their 'Southern strategy' of deliberately wooing white racists.

But it worked so well. That's the depressing thing. And the fact that it's still working, with a disturbingly large part of America, is even more so.
