I'll probably get into trouble for writing this, but Michael Jackson will fade away while Prince will live forever.

American Democracy

So, here's the worst case scenario for American democracy.

Despite her big win in New York, Hillary Clinton goes back to her losing ways against Bernie Sanders.  She goes into Philadelphia behind in elected, pledged delegates,  but, unlike eight years ago, the super-delegates remain loyal, and she gets the nomination.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump arrives in Cleveland with a significant lead in actual votes as well as pledged delegates, but not the majority he needs to secure the nomination.  The Republicans, after multiple ballots, reject both Trump and his nearest competitor, Ted Cruz, and instead pick John Kasich as their standard bearer.  Donald Trump, angry and hurt, launches a third party run.

The election is over, Hillary comes in first, Trump second, and Kasich third.  And one faithless elector casts a single electoral college vote for Paul Ryan. No candidate has enough votes in the electoral college, so the final choice for President is left to the House of Representatives.  They choose Paul Ryan, a man who hasn't received a single cast vote from anyone.

And that's how American democracy finally dies.

Teddy Boy and the Women

Teddy Boy is running as an evangelical Christian.  Of course his sexual dalliances are relevant.   Meanwhile, our favorite hacktivists, Anonymous, have posted phone records that may show a link between the Texas Canadian and D.C. madam Deborah Palfrey.

Now, let's be clear.  Heidi Cruz's appearance is not an issue, but as long as the press is fixated on who's wife is hotter, they aren't questioning Mrs. Cruz's employment at Goldman Sachs.  The Wall Street firm already has too much influence in Washington.  What happens if a Sachs employee is First lady?  Will it be a repeat of Dick Vader and Halliburton?

Donny Dumbo vs Teddy Boy

Let's be honest.  Ted Cruz is worse than Donald Trump.  Trump may be a jackass, but at least he's a malleable jackass.  


North Carolina just passed one of the most stringent anti LGBT laws in the country.  Should gay and transgender activists disrupt the NCAA championship game featuring the North Carolina Tar Heels?  I think so.  I mean why not?  There should be consequences for North Carolina and taking it to their beloved basketball team seems just about right.
