One thing I've thought wise was how you Canadians, and the Brits as well, keep their election campaigns short and sweet.

Yabut... only ten people live in Canada.

This quote caught my eye this morning...

In the interest of accuracy and "Truth in advertizing" -- shouldn't they advertize such events as --

"The GOP Circlejerk"????

Trumph is the pivot man.....

Actually, tonight was also the first debate of the Canadian 2015 election. Which, at a 79 day writ drop, is the longest election cycle we've ever had. The clown show in Cleveland tonight is the precursor to an election which is 400 days away.

Something about that seems a little insane to me.

One thing I've thought wise was how you Canadians, and the Brits as well, keep their election campaigns short and sweet. If you need 400 days to get your message out, you must be terribly stupid, complex beyond belief, or covering up the fact that you really have no message and hoping that quantity makes up for a lack of quality.

I'm inclined to think 1 and 3 are the case with our own pols.

Don't forget reason #4: extra time to suck the donors dry in return for future favors. It's much more work than these pols will do when in office.

They had a sampling of quotes in the local newspaper today. My favorite was from Huckabee: "The purpose of the military is to kill people and break things..."

"Break things"? Is his middle name Beavis?

It is better Trump than this socialist H.Clinton.
I liked Ted Cruz. He is very smart and he will do what he promised to do. He will fight. At least he will try.

I thought, compared to the other 9, that Kasich came off as a relatively level-headed, plain-spoken, guided but not blinded by his faith, classic conservative. In other words: he's fucked.

Trump actually scares me more than Obama or Hillary Clinton. Trump is a salesman suckering you into a bad deal. Watch as he continues to peddle the message of doom and gloom and that you need to elect him and only him before it is too late. He is creating a need in the minds of the American people. He is manipulating them in a very disturbing way.

Now I know Hillary and Trump will lie to the American people to get their votes. What scares me about Trump is I don't really know where he stands. With Clinton, at least you do.

I won't vote for Hillary or Trump.
