Anyone remember all the GOPers who fell before Rumpy in 2016 with such macho rhetoric as “Please clap”….. and then the GOP’s best became the mess we suffer with now….
The 2020 elections will tell whether having 20+ Demonrats running for the Presidency was a good thing. They are only now beginning to realize ‘they have overplayed their hand.’
Your family must be so proud of you, Stiglich, to see the so-called political humor comics you come up with on a regular basis. I’ll bet you’re thankful every day that every Republican is so perfect and ridiculing anyone other than the way you think is funny.
Kevin Necessary did a great job talking about editorial comics the other day.
Just trying to say something positive. Instead of ripping this piece of offal to pieces.
Cory will still have a job as a Senator and can run again later. Not everyone can run against Trump this time around, so some people have to bow out. Tom’s message misses by a mile.
Spartacus certainly did stumble, but he can call it a learning experience and move on. I don’t like him politically but I think he’s one of the few that is at least sincere and honest. Ironically, I think that may have hurt him.
Hair Treason Weasel was like the Black Knight in ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ by the end of the primaries, sliced to pieces by all of his verbal gaffes, character assassinations, and xenophobic and racist blathering and was still supported by the Maggats.
This is no shock. Only one will ‘win’.
Once again Tom Stiglich proves he has nothing to say.
Do not confuse this garbage with political commentary. Tom Stiglich is just a disgusting excuse for a human.
Again, Stiglich has over-estimated his powers of observation and perception!
Of one thing I am certain: Trump would never be “Spartacus”.
Commonly, yes, election campaigns end if the candidate doesn’t catch on with the public.
You might want to take note of the FACT that this campaign falsifies the oft stated NEW-CON claim of Democrats being identity voters. None of the black candidates ever caught on with black voters.
Of course, NEW-CONS will now deny they ever said such a thing.
Booker has shown good sense in bowing out of the race now, since it’s clear that he won’t get the nomination. Instead, he can now assist whoever does get the Democratic nomination.
Meanwhile, contrary to Stiglich’s cartoon, he’s far from dead, politically. In fact, he’s still a Senator.
The Dems’ rules kept Booker off the debate stage. Whether or not that’s a good idea is also debatable, though I’m inclined toward thinking it’s at least semi-realistic. Anyhoo, Booker then decided (correctly) that if he couldn’t be on stage, he was effectively out of the running and (correctly) dropped out. If he’d been resonating well with the Dem electorate, presumably he’d have made it onto the stage… which is why I think the rules are at least somewhat real. Interesting to me that another rich white guy did make it into the roster… for the first time. He’s been running ads like money was no object, and it sure looks like that’s working for him.
The thing that amazes me every 4 years, both parties, is the enormous egos. 10, 15 even 20 people seeking the nomination, most of them marginal at best. Most of whom never had a snowball’s chance.
Why? Don’t they have trusted friends willing to tell them the truth? People like Booker, Christie, Gabbard, Kasich, Harris, Jeb Bush, etc, etc. I suppose some of them are running for VP or a cabinet post but most actually believe they can win.
I suspect egomania is a requirement for career politicians.
