"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

The discussion on CNN was whether the Belligerent Billionaire's  rivals will support BB if he wins the presidential nomination.

Senator Ted Cruze said intently ; " I am not in the habit of supporting someone who attacks my wife" 

He gets an F for articulation. F minus for imagination. 

He makes it sound like his wife is a regular target and a nomination battle is a regular event in his life. e

So far as we know,it's his first flight of fancy.  How is that habit-forming?

He could have answered the question, yes or no.

Or better still, he could have disassociated himself with the attack ad showing a nude photo of BB's wife. 

With all the intensity he could muster, he didn't  even think of that.

This  from a man who thinks he should be King. 

The media are still aiding and abetting  sly,calculating , "Independent" Senator Sanders.

Numerous times a day, it's  repeated that Hillary is not popular or trusted. No explanation is added . 
Her opponents are given free rein to pound her mercilessly and then,to add insult to injury, they ask Hillary to explain the phenomena.

The Secretary of State has earned a million votes more than the Behemoth  and 2.5 million more than the  Senator but apparently votes cast don't mean the same as they do elsewhere.

Sanders crowds are orchestrated  to boo the Secretary,  as Trump Rallies are encouraged to physical abuse. But Sanders gets a pass. 

Dozens  of political "analysts" endlessly  engage in the gabfest of expertise . Uniformly, they acknowledge  Hillary's competence,skill, experience and platform, while insisting on her unpopularity. 

What would it take, one wonders, to please the chattering class. 

Do they ever listen to themselves ?

Originally Trump stated he would support the republican candidate. Now he says he will not. Truly a man of his word/

Nah, they don't listen to themselves. And they live in protested little bubbles in which no one dares to criticize them. Imagine being one of Trump's kids, never mind one of his ex-wives.

I came upon a very interesting photo display of interiors that compared Trump's with that of Saddam Hussein.

There is a great deal of vulgar similarity, all featuring ornate gold and crystal furniture and chandeliers.

You should see the TRUMP TAJ MAHAL hotel and casino.

The man's taste is surely up a certain unnamed orifice.

Cruz believes the End of the World is upon us which is why he was so cavalier about shutting down the government.
Trump has no idea what he believes. If he were to be elected, the End of the World might be upon us.

One can only hope for a brokered republican convention to really mess them all up.
As long as they keep the guns out of it.

The End of the World will not be upon us if anyone of those presidential candidates get elected. We are witnessing theatrical performances by everyone, including the media.

Cruz wants votes so badly he went hunting in full gear with the Duck Dynasty bunch. He uses the same anger as Trump but with a slathering of quasi-religion smeared over the top.

I believe you're right.
