New Hampshire Open Thread

Bernie and Trump win. Battle for second among Republicans, with Kasich and Bush currently outpacing Cruz and Rubio.

What a stupid state.

I am ridiculously tired of everything to do with the New Hampshire, which, if history is any indication, will do very little to help us move any further towards a GOP nominee beyond convincing some of the also-rans to give up the ghost and end their campaigns. That said, I saw this video in a post on Powerline in which Triumph the Insult Comic Dog speaks to a group of freshmen — uh, “first year students” — at the University of New Hampshire. Not to lapse into silly cliché, but this really did have tears rolling from my eyes. Warning: video contains copious profanities in case you are at work.

I find it interesting that this video is produced in conjunction with Funny or Die, which mostly produces comedy ideologically aligned with the beliefs of its left-wing co-founder Will Farrell. Funny or Die has in the past shilled for ObamaCare and they are generally relentlessly hostile towards conservative public figures while largely delivering sloppy wet kisses to their allies on the left. So for that particular collection of smug progressives who still laugh at Farrell’s scenery-chewing and continuing buffoonery to be willing to lampoon the lunacy of one of the key pillars of modern leftism should give great pause to crybullies everywhere.

Profile of a Trump Supporter

Alternate title: How’s That Whole Democracy Thing Working Out For You”?

A reporter found the woman who yelled at a Trump rally that Ted Cruz is a “pussy” and interviewed her for her further insights, which are as follows:

“I watched the debate, and [Ted Cruz] just comes across as a pussy,” she told Mic on the floor of the Verizon center. “He doesn’t have the balls to stand up to Putin. He doesn’t have the balls to stand up to other leaders of others countries.”

When asked whether she trusts Trump, she answered, “He’s got the balls the size of watermelons, whereas the other ones got the balls of little grapes.” She then specified the size of other candidates’ testicles. “The other one, Rubio, [has balls] like a raisin.” When asked about the other candidates, she answered, “They’re nobodies.”

If it makes you feel any better, her vote counts the same as yours.

P.S. The “Gimme Free Stuff or Die” state selects its preferred nanny today. I’ll open a thread this evening. If you can’t wait, use this.

Donald Trump on Ted Cruz: “She Said He’s a Pussy”

He would never say this about Ted Cruz. But an audience member said it — and he had no choice but to repeat it. To denounce it, you understand!

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” — Franklin Delano Roosevelt

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” — John F. Kennedy, Jr.

“Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” — Ronald Reagan

“She said he’s a pussy. That’s terrible. Terrible!” — Donald J. Trump
