Is this the best the Republicans have?
Jeb Bush and Rubio (perhaps as VP?) and perhaps Rand Paul (who's far too low in the polls at this point) were the Republicans best chance. I can't imagine the current cast of Republican front-running clowns as having even a sliver of a chance in the general election. The Republican Party, even after publicly ruminating on the need to leave xenophobia and racism behind, still consider this populist hatred to be the only trump card left in their weak hand. For me, of course, this is all great news. Now, if Hillary would just slip so that Sanders could take the Democratic ticket, we could have an interesting election. I'd imagine the Koch brothers and their like-minded brethren would be calling up hit-man at that point, but I still fantasize.
