Arizona, properly understood

The Arizona raw numbers tonight will be misleading, and subject to misinterpretation, because as many as half the votes have already been cast, and a majority of those were made before Rubio dropped out.  Early voting is an incredibly stupid idea.  It’s probably something those airheads at the League of Women Voters came up with, and a bunch of Arizona legislators were so witless as to agree to it  These guys aren’t rocket scientists, believe me.

What would really be significant would be truly scientific exit poling.  Compare that result with the raw total, and you’d begin to see where Arizona was heading.  And if I’m right, Cruz would have won it without early voting.

This is something John Kasich needs to understand.  The party is coalescing around Cruz.  Does the name Lindsey Graham mean anything to you?   He needs to get out before Wisconsin, or he will hold a special place in the history of the Republican Party  — sore loser, and idiot.

The problem with Wisconsin is that it’s an open primary.  No surprise here, but a lot of the moron vote that is Trump’s base of support is Democrat.  So he’s in better shape here than he was in Arizona.  With Kasich out, one on one, Cruz beats Trump in Wisconsin, and beyond.  Do the math.

Utah is an outlier, which explains Trump’s lack of support there.  But it signals what’s ahead in Montana, South Dakota, New Mexico, Nebraska, and the eastern parts of Washington, Oregon and California.

I’ve urged everyone to cut Kasich some slack, but if he goes on to Wisconsin he’s as dumb as a Trump.

I’m a Roman Catholic, and a proud one, and I dislike it when people run down the Church, based on nothing but ignorance and prejudice.  I was at a party with Babbie and some of her girl friends were talking about some book by some guy named Dan Brown, and how it really told you about how the Catholic Church really was.

Babbie is a Christian, but religion has never been anything she’s really interested in.  When we were dating I asked her what religion she was, and she said Protestant.  I asked what kind, and she got upset.  She went to Piedmont Community Church, and it was basically non-denominational.  As long as you weren’t a Catholic or a Mormon, you were welcome.  When I said I wanted to be married in the Catholic Church, she really didn’t care.  She’s a Christian, Catholics are Christian, so no problem.

But when she started joining in with her girl friends, and parroting this anti-Catholic propaganda crap, I blew up.  The problem was, I’d had a few beers, and I was tired of listening to these women.  Babbie, I said, You’re dumber than a stump.

She often reminds me of that incident.
