Big day today in the primaries.

Ohio and Florida, of course: but also Illinois, Missouri, and North Carolina. Handicapping: Ohio is… probably Kasich. Missouri is… 50/50 for Cruz. Illinois is up in the air. North Carolina will be a chaotic mess. And Florida? Well, Marco Rubio may or may not win Florida, but nobody can say that he didn’t fight it down to the wire. Sometimes you can’t do anything else.

As for best- or worst-case scenarios: optimum would be for Kasich to win Ohio and Rubio to win Florida, and then have both drop out. Worst case scenario is a full sweep by Trump AND both Kasich and Rubio staying in anyway. Somewhere in the middle would be clarity, and a two- or three-man race. Election won’t be over tonight.

    While I can see your argument, I loathe Kasich.
    I would kind of like to see him utterly rejected and humiliated.
    .
    Of course, I’m also of the opinion that if Kasich or Rubio win, the odds of getting them out of the race approach zero.

    Correction to the optimum: Cruz to win Ohio and pull off a miracle in the Idiot, I mean, Sunshine state (former resident, but “Florida Man” is a thing after all).

    The Dem race is suddenly as interesting as the Republican side. Can Bernie repay his Michigan upset in Ohio , Illinois or Missouri? the longer this race goes on the more cash the Clintons have to spend.

    • acat says:

      Ummm.. quite likely, if enough Dems cross over to support Trump.

      Trump is filling the role of spoiler .. for *both* parties.

    I can’t take it anymore. Can I please get off this miserable ride?

    • Moe_Lane says:

      Nope! We’re all on this magical carousel until it stops spinning.

        It’s not seasonally appropriate, but I direct your attention to Clark Griswold’s soliloquy .. the one you can easily find (language warning) by searching “griswold hap hap happiest”…

        That’s .. kind of the mental state (not the *competence* state, of course!) I picture Moe enduring at the moment.
        .
        I hope Mrs. Lane does not need a newel post repaired.

        I plan on drinking heavily.

        Are you sure there isn’t a wiring panel we can pry open and short-out? Or even just increase speed so that those on the far-out row would be flung off due to their tenuous grasp of both the ride and/or reality?

          The roulette ball of Fate lands where it will.
          About all we can do is enjoy the anticipation.

            To quote an exchange my some college buddies:
            Friend1(The arts major): “Sure, let’s play Russian roulette with a one-shot pistol”
            Friend 2(The actuary): “Not-first!”

            Somehow, I always hear sentences like the second in Tim Curry’s voice.
            .
            “antici .. pation”.
            .
            Let’s do the time warp again!
