Momentous(ly Bad) Night In U.S. Politics: Ted Cruz Drops Out, Donald Frickin' Trump Will Be The Republican Nominee Comments (0)

In a shocker, Ted Cruz—after losing today's Indiana Republican primary, has dropped out of the race for president. (Carly Fiorina's veep run was historically short.) Will he try for convention mischief? Will John Kasich follow suit? No matter; Donald Trump is now the presumptive nominee.

On gay issues, it's great, in that Cruz is by far the more virulently, legitimately anti-gay candidate between himself and Trump. But Trump is an ill-informed, erratic blowhard, and he is now one step closer to being a major-party nominee.

Depressingly, Bernie Sanders scored a surprise win in Indiana—which is an open primary—and now gets to continue attacking Hillary Clinton as if she has been “anointed.” You know, those decades of public service don't really count when you're crowned. Ugh.

Now, even though Sanders won an open primary (so non-Democrats got to vote) and spent millions to win it, we get to endure him attacking Hillary Clinton all the way to the Democratic convention, where Hillary will be the nominee on the first vote.

From now until then, Hillary can't entirely shrug off her battle against Sanders, and will also be getting body-slammed by Donald Trump every single day. Like he did in his speech tonight, saying Hillary would be “a very poor president.” I wouldn't be surprised if his next attack is something like: Hillary's so terrible she can't even sew up the nomination like even IIIIII have!

Just let me know when she officially has the nomination and Sanders has thrown his support behind her, because I'll believe the latter when it happens.

Final thought: We need to focus on beating Trump, not beating up on inevitable nominee Hillary.

Gotta love watching Carly Fiorina fall off a stage after introducing running mate Ted Cruz, as if disappearing through a trap door.

 
Heidi Cruz Denies That Ted Cruz Is The Zodiac Killer Comments (0)

It's gotten to the point where a ridiculous Internet meme suggesting that Ted Cruz could be the Zodiac Killer is actually being denied by his wife.

Ted could not be the killer, considering the slayings began within two years of his birth, but that isn't stopping his wife from addressing the eyeroll-inducing theory:

Well, I’ve been married to him for 15 years, and I know pretty well who he is, so it doesn’t bother me at all. There’s a lot of garbage out there.

Which is exactly what the wife of the Zodiac Killer would say, right?

P.S. Thirty-eight percent of Florida voters think it's possible that Cruz could be the Zodiac Killer.

Hillary Clinton & Gay Men: A Love Story Comments (0)

(Screen grab via HillaryClinton.com)

Check out Matthew Hays's piece on whether Hillary Clinton has a special edge with gay men—and why.

I'm quoted in the piece, and the to-be-expected bonkers comments make for a great antidote to antiquated notions that gay men are somehow smarter and funnier than straight men.

P.S. Just because there seems to be a great percentage of gay men who are for Hillary (or who like The Golden Girls reruns or enjoy anal sex or go to Madonna concerts), it shouldn't threaten you so much if you're not one of those guys. No pressure!

 
Jane Sanders: IT WOULD BE NICE IF THE FBI MOVED IT ALONG Comments (0)

As many Democrats seek a way to come together in order to defeat (probably) Donald Trump, it's unfortunate that Bernie Sanders's wife, Jane, has appeared on FOX News in order to say she wishes the FBI would speed up its investigation into Hillary Clinton's private server.

Her exact quote:

We want to let [the investigation] go through without politicizing it, and then we’ll find out what the situation is. And that’s how we still feel. I mean, it would be nice if the FBI moved it along. [Laughs] But, other than that ...

It sounds like she's hoping against hope that Hillary will be formally accused of wrongdoing, be embarrassed by a scolding, or even be charged.

It's a far cry from one of Bernie's finest moments in his campaign, a moment that not only helped Hillary but, I would argue, helped his own prospects:

 

I think this cycle is unique on the Democratic side (and something more than unique on the Republican side!) in that the usual coming home of Democrats is complicated by the fact that Sen. & Dr. Sanders are not Democrats, but Independents. Most of their supporters are Democrats who prefer him to Hillary, but will vote for her in a pinch. But there is a higher-than-usual (and louder-than-usual) percentage of voters in the Sanders camp who will simply never vote for Hillary—and there's no sense in fretting over them coming home because home is not the Democratic Party.

Let the #NeverHillary crowd crow and let them have their satisfaction at denying her their votes, because they were never going to vote for her anyway.

I am hopeful that more people in this country see Hillary Clinton as a good choice to run the U.S. over Donald Trump, who seems not only maniacally ego-driven (and yet Hillary is often tarred with that insult), but frighteningly unpredictable. It doesn't boggle my mind that someone might dislike or mistrust Hillary, but it does boggle my mind that anyone who isn't a dyed-in-the-wool right-winger could see Trump as a safer bet.

 
Ring Dreams: Ted Cruz's Indiana Gaffe Comments (0)

I would rather this young woman reconsider her support of Ted Cruz over his lack of foreign-policy experience, his absence of deep thought, his push for a theocracy and/or his abhorrent views on LGBT people, but if embarrassingly referring to a basketball hoop as a ring is what it takes, so be it.
