Quote of the Day, This Is Absolutely True About Trump and New Hampshire edition.

One of the reasons why I privately worried about Donald Trump winning Iowa is because I’m pretty sure that he’s going to win New Hampshire, and for precisely the reasons that Dan McLaughlin states:

New Hampshire is the best possible state for Trump. It has a primary, not a caucus; a long history of high voter turnout built on a culture of town meetings, scores of tiny state legislative districts, and frequent contested statewide elections (the Governor is up for re-election every two years, the House and Senate seats flip parties with regularity); and way more secular, white independents than any other state. And Trump has had a double-digit lead in the RCP poll average in New Hampshire continually since early August.

Trump winning Iowa and New Hampshire would have… complicated… matters for the GOP.  And we’ll leave it at that.

My RedState post on Trump and the public option.

Found here. Short version: dude’s for it, man.  It’s pretty clear that Donald Trump supports a public option, because as recently as last September he was describing either that, or something like a federal Medicaid expansion, as being part of his plan.  I dunno why this hasn’t been mentioned more.

My RedState post from yesterday on the Trump debate thing.

Found here. Turns out that Donald Trump decided to bite the bullet… we think.  Smart money is that he ends up trying to get back into the debate anyway, if ‘smart money’ even means anything anymore in this context.

PS: If you follow me on Twitter then you know that I’ve gotten more and more tired of the man’s shtick lately. The Flowchart was never meant to be tested to destruction… well. A resolution of my problems should not be the end-all and be-all of human society, either.

This [expletive deleted]ing guy.


You’re killing me here, Donnie.  Killing me. This is not helpful.  This does not make it easier for me to help present a consistent, conservative vision and message for America.  This is why they say, “Do not flap your gums.”  Stop flapping your gums, Donnie. Hire some [expletive deleted] who doesn’t like you, and pay him to double-check it when you want to say things like this.

I mean… Jeez, Donnie. You gotta remember all the [expletive deleted] that you say! You just gotta! All the time!

…Arggh.  This guy.

The obligatory Larry David / Donald Trump / SNL post.

I… do not think that this worked out the way that the Democratic client ‘advocacy’ group wanted it to work out.

While the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” creator probably doesn’t need the cash, he’s about to collect $5,000 courtesy of an immigrant rights group for heckling Donald Trump this weekend on “SNL.”

“Trump’s a racist!” David shouted at the end of the GOP presidential candidate’s monologue. When asked by Trump why he was shouting, David answered, “I heard if I did that, they’d give me $5,000.”

Donald Trump threatens to sue the Club for Growth for libel. Over… an *attack ad*.

Permit me to demonstrate, fairly succinctly, why it was not a very good idea for Donald Trump to threaten to sue the Club for Growth for libel over its new attack ad ‘Politician.’ To wit: in order for us to discuss that, you gotta see the ad. Well, I guess that some people don’t feel the need to see the ad, but the rest of us do. That entire ‘informed citizens of the Republic’ bit, you see:

Tweet of the Day, NO! That’s Fine… edition.

…we’ll take it as written and be happy about it.

Seriously, it’s not like it was dated October. Let us simply all get on with our lives, OK? This has already dragged on long enough.
