    Ooh…not sure that Trump was thumped. A New Yorker who is the epitome of loud brash in your face mover and shaker went to Iowa and placed second. So now I guess we can discard the idea that he was a stalking horse for Hillary, or that the campaign was a lark, or that he wouldn’t do well in Iowa because he didn’t have any ground game.

    Cruz: Glad he won. The first actual conservative to win the Iowa caucus since…I dunno. Bush Sr.? Reagan? This is big.

    Trump: He lost but I’m afraid he’s going to run as an independent and do a Ross Perot to Republicans; split the vote and let Hillary get in.

    Socialist Sanders: It terrifies me that an open Communist, the sworn enemy of all freedom and all that America used to stand for, was a very, very close second to Hillary.

    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” -Reagan

    Take it up with the Daily Mail. I just link this stuff.

    You forgot the REAL winner according to the intelligentsia: H1-B champion Marco Rubio.

    If you woke up from a coma today and looked for GOP TV coverage, you would have thought he won the whole bowl of corn.

    And had Bush not wasted $15 mil on attacks ads to bring down Rubio, Trump may have finished third. I think that’s significant, but apparently no one else does 🙁

    I’m glad Cruz did well, but why does that first photo remind me of this?

    Stated differently, what is it about primary victories that cause politicians to be compelled to inhale their spouses into their own lungs?

    I agree with you! Except I think Bush spent more than $15 million (or was that just Iowa)
