Must have been me leaving a tag open...sorry.

Jeb is toast.

Bye Bye, Lindsey

WASHINGTON (AP) With just over a month to go until early voting begins in the 2016 race for president, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham announced Monday he was ending his campaign.

46103. arkymalarky - 12/21/2015 6:51:05 PM

I wouldn't vote for him for dog catcher, but I enjoyed his comments more than any other candidate.

President Donald Trump.

There's a reason I think progressives are fuckwits.

Salon is just blowing smoke. It's like PUMA in '08. Republicans are seeding that thought hoping it'll take root, and it isn't going to.

46106. iiibbb - 12/22/2015 8:33:45 PM

Except I know real people who are saying this.

And I'm not sure Nader is fresh enough in their minds.

46107. arkymalarky - 12/22/2015 9:56:55 PM

I think trump is more likely to run as an independent than Bernie Sanders is.

46108. arkymalarky - 12/22/2015 9:58:13 PM

Stan's going to go for bernie in the primary, but when it comes to the general unless somebody reasonable moves to the forefront I can't imagine. Of course I never take anything for granted. Not after 8 years of Bush. Or 8 years of Reagan for that matter.

46109. iiibbb - 12/22/2015 10:20:08 PM

The only thing that makes Hilary avoiders irrelevant is Trump running as an independent.

46110. judithathome - 12/23/2015 8:58:45 PM

Now taking suggestions for places to move outside the US if Trump or Cruz is elected....we've thought about becoming permanent "cruisers" but I hate that idea because of too many exposures to disease....on month two of severe cough and cold....and I got it at ONE party. So I want some obscure place where I don't have to mingle and where Keoni can still play golf.

Very serious...so far, we've thought about an ex-pat community on the coast of Mexico...

46111. arkymalarky - 12/23/2015 9:13:13 PM

I would like South Korea personally. Talk to our girls who live there. Canada's great now they've gotten rid of their right wing and Spook's son just got his citizenship there. Considering the coast and global warming, probably wouldn't be too bad Temp wise

46112. arkymalarky - 12/23/2015 9:15:03 PM

Stan and I are just Going to stay put where it's easy to ignore. Both here and in Colorado.

46113. judithathome - 12/23/2015 9:49:01 PM

Korea is nice to visit but I wouldn't want to live there...been there, done that with the Orient.

46114. ms. no - 12/24/2015 1:09:59 AM

My sil's parents are retiring to Panama.

I'd come visit!

46115. arkymalarky - 12/24/2015 1:40:33 AM

Don't think I can go south of here. I can barely breathe here. We know people in SK and Canada who would love to help us visit or live.

Is it possible that the rise of ISIS is an unintended consequence of Nader's 3rd party run in 2000? Thousands of Nader votes in Florida would have likely gone to Gore and it seems like Gore would not have gone taken us to war in Iraq. Without the Iraq war, the Middle East might be very different.

And there's always the question of whether 911 would have happened with gore. Bill Clinton supposedly stopped several planned attacks. Most famously the LAX millennial.

Dale bumpers died. Best politician in Arkansas since I've been here.
