With billionaire bully boy Donald Trump arrogantly flashing his fascist colors on Super Tuesday, how many supposedly big-time Republicans have spoken out against his disgusting politics of racism, hatred, and aggressive know-nothingism? Too damn few.
If the Republican Party can't come together and figure themselves out, we're looking at a chaotic next few months. If 1912 is any indicator of what could potentially happen, and it principally is, Republicans better prepare themselves for a President Clinton or Sanders.
Tomorrow's the big night, whether you prefer to call it Super Tuesday or the "SEC Tuesday" (because of all the Southern states). So rather than scramble to get this out before the polls close tomorrow night, I'm posting all my primary picks today.
Few people realize that the series of children's books by L. Frank Baum, on which the film was based -- most notably The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and some 15 subsequent Oz volumes published during the first two decades of the 20th Century -- is riddled with political references and serves as an allegory for American populism in the 1890s. The parallels to Trump's campaign are profound.
It was the political equivalent of boxer Muhammad Ali dramatically upsetting George Foreman in the Rumble in the Jungle.
Please accept my sincere congratulations for having Donald Trump as your present frontrunner and, after Tuesday, likely presidential nominee. You've worked so very hard to get him here, and I applaud you for your efforts.
If you thought McCain's selection of Alaska's then half-term governor was odd, wait until Trump or Cruz have to sit down with their closest advisors and make a decision.
This election may not yield the gentle outcome and humane transition I hope for, though I will continue to work for that. Either way we can be sure Christ will not return in a tank carrying an automatic weapon. We are in a sea change.
Today, during the Upfronts, ABC was totally up front about a new political television series that's about to hit the airwaves -- one which will provide conclusive proof that Donald Trump has totally trumped the GOP.
Life in the Boomer Lane could barely contain her sadness over the recent discord between some mighty high profile people. She will now bring you up...
We have serious doubts that we'll see Trump at any future debates -- after all, if he can blow them off with impunity, why would he subject himself to them in the first place?
Welcome to Headline Hangover - our weekly take on some of the ridiculous local, national and global news stories. Here's a look back at some of the headlines that caught the world's attention this week.

It's not a new phenomenon for a politician to use someone's suffering for political gain, but Sarah Palin, in addressing her son's arrest last week for domestic violence, has managed both to propagate a series of misunderstandings about PTSD and to dishonor veterans.
A Brooklynite turned "back-to-the-land" Vermont socialist who honeymooned in the Soviet Union and has far less executive experience than Sarah Palin vs. a fact-free braying bully boy billionaire real estate and gambling mogul bizarrely backed by evangelicals would be crazy enough. Toss in another New Yorker, a billionaire "daddy knows best" ex-mayor and media mogul who is no class traitor and we get the full banana republic experience.
Now that Sarah Palin is back in the news; I thought this tongue twister was apropos. Say it three times fast!...
