OH BOY. Is something finally going to happen in this Never-Ending Horror Show of a contest??
Let’s check in with Political Prophet Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight to see what the hell is going to happen, before we live it, tomorrow!
❝[The] overall projection [is] 224 delegates for Mr. Romney, which would be a majority. It’s now Mr. Gingrich in second place, with 87 delegates to Mr. Santorum’s 76.❞
Or, in chart form:
Now that’s a shitload of delegates.
Relatively speaking, anyway. So why does this matter, to anyone, at all? Well, if the Republican base really does decide to start rallying around ol’ Mittens – if not in spirit then at least in numbers – then the sound of idiotic, promise-making, birth control-condemning, narcissistic wingnuts yammering all over our country will start to diminish…hopefully, maybe? And maybe we can really start “vetting” our options, as Republicans claim they love to do but GOD do they hate it IRL.
It’s been said to death, but what the hell: maybe soon we could start talking about the real issues?? We all love the sideshow, but when you start looking around and you realize to your horror that there is no actual show and it’s all sideshow, that may mean it’s time to pull our shit together and at least try to talk about something real. Just one thing, at first, so everyone can get used to it, then we’ll work our way up from there?
Oh yeah, meanwhile, we’re getting closer and closer to going to war, because we are America, and that is what we do. But don’t get distracted by that, because abortion.
