Pundits seem to feel Sanders may have  chance after all, after the tie in Michigan

He needs to win about 63-66% of the vote in every single state from this point forward.

Looks like I'll be voting for Clinton in the general.  I've had happier thoughts, but she ain't in the fucking clown car full of Nazis, so...

I'd like a thread split, please.  Say, post 326.

Done, with relevant responses to the sub-conversation centered on post 326 split out as well so that those who wish to continue with that conversation may hopefully do so seamlessly.

The thought occurs that the aftermath of this election is going to be so much of a shitshow we can't even guess how funny it will get.

If Trump takes it, pundits will never want for work for their daily/weekly shows because something stupendous will drop out of him regularly. Republicans and democrats shit themselves and refuse to do anything constructive. 

If Hilary takes it, the same but with references to Clinton/Blowjobs. When attempting to do anything, Republicans and democrats shit themselves and refuse to do anything constructive.

So that would probably leave either fucking about with Foreign policy and you just know how well that will fucking go.

So Ha fucking Ha. At this rate I wouldn't be surprised with either starting to pull the ISIS card a lot more over the next few months.
Nine naked Men just walking down the road will cause a heap of trouble for all concerned.

Last night's GOP debate was the scariest one yet, because they all suddenly looked... serious.

Still saying hate-filled, ignorant bullshit, but calmly.  One of those fuckers could win, couldn't they?

I suspect Rubio's plea for Trump to recognise that "American" and "Muslim" are not mutually exclusive categories will lose him even more votes in Florida.  After California, Florida has the 2nd highest concentration of anti-Muslim hate groups in America (after California), and is of course the home state for Stormfront and Don Black.

Yes.  Trump or Cruz.  I'm actually thinking Cruz.  His eschaton bullshit is really starting to go down with the crowd.

I think the party is falling apart.  Romney is pushing for a brokered convention....if that happens, all hell breaks loose.  If it doesn't...Trump or Cruz win, and all hell breaks loose anyway.

There is literally no good option from an RNC POV.  I'd almost feel sorry for them, if they weren't suffering from circumstances of their own devising.

I just shouted at my computer for them to shut the fuck up.

If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.

I'm holding out hope that that's just a poorly phrased, spur of the moment tweet reacting to the embarrassing events at the Chicago Trump rally. Or his account was hacked.  :lol:

Its about to get more fun than anyone possibly ever wanted.

Trump has threatened to send people to attack Sanders' rallies, and is speaking with his legal team about paying the fees to defend his supporter who helped start a brawl last night by sucker punching a protestor.

Sorry, no, he's paying the legal fees of the guy who punched someone on Wednesday, my bad:

http://www.vox.com/2016/3/11/11202540/trump-violent

Quote
n Wednesday, 26-year-old Rakeem Jones was being escorted out of a Donald Trump rally by security when John McGraw punched him in the face.

Jones was protesting the rally, which is why he was being escorted out by security to begin with. McGraw was charged with the assault. But he was unrepentant.

"He deserved it," McGraw told Inside Edition. "The next time we see him, we might have to kill him. We don’t know who he is. He might be with a terrorist organization."

When Donald Trump was asked about the incident at CNN's debate Thursday night, he generally defended the attendees at his rallies. And on Sunday, he told Chuck Todd on NBC's Meet the Press that he's "instructed (his) people to look into" paying McGraw's legal fees.
