Apathetic? Uninformed? Don't even vote? Have your bread and want your circus?

Scott "Dilbert" Adams says you can always pick who would win the presidential election by who would win in a cage match.

I'm not sure that's foolproof because Obama has won the last two elections. It was a much better predictor, I suspect, before women got the vote, although I haven't done the research. In any case, there is no doubt in my mind that Romney beats Obama in a cage match. And even conceding the age difference, McCain does too.

OTOH, Adams includes VPs and whereas Sarah Palin might hold her own against Joe Biden in a cage match, Biden (surprisingly, given how much Ryan works out) is going to stomp Ryan. At least that's what anyone would think after watching the two debate.

Anyway, this metric seems to favor Trump over HRC.

Jeb! is going to lose to anyone, except perhaps (Baby) Hitler.

If HRC wins, who does she pick as her running mate--that is, tag-team partner? Biden?

Why not? He's a wily veteran who knows the ropes and how to employ a foreign object when necessary.

Who does Trump pick?

Why not...

Saw this over at Ace's.

I wonder if the tape is sped up, because Obama runs it together until it's almost a name.

Someone: "Here comes Huey R."

Obama: "No, that's not Huey R."

I suppose it's nitpicking to point out that there have actually been only 43 boys who have been President.*

"Girls rule, boys drool!"

HRC's campaign is so much more mature than Trump's.

*Despite Grover Cleveland's non-consecutive terms, he was still only one boy.

Oy.

Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. That's embarassing.

One reason I think Rubio reminds me of LA Law Jimmy Smits besides the obvious Latino angle is they both do this left eyebrow thing when they get earnest:

I watched the SNL sendup of the last GOP debate and found it really poor. I'm especially disappointed with Darrell Hammond's Donald Trump because Trump should be easy and back in the old days I was a fan of Hammond's.

The only person who made me laugh was the guy doing Carson.

I remember a time, back in the late 90s, when I thought nonsense like this mattered somewhat more than I do now. Now I see well-educated people yammering about the birth control choices of their daughters, or gay marriage, and I think they are morons.

That is really great, the Jimmy Smits thing.

Has everyone decided that it doesn't matter what comes out of Chris Matthews' mouth?

"Who is going to watch a debate between two Cuban guys?"

Donald Trump retweeted someone calling Megyn Kelly a bimbo for these shots for GQ.

I guess if the Trumpster wins in his eyes we'll have a bimbo for First Lady:

Someone else (besides Sterling) has noticed Ted Cruz's similarity to Mr. Haney

The embedded video is worth watching to see Cruz's imitation of Billy Crystal and Carol Kane in The Princess Bride.

Although you have to wonder how many times he has watched the movie to learn the lines like that.
