Tomorrow is primary day in Massachusetts and I don't know what to do. The Washington Post has an article on Bay State Republicans (there are a few of us) and how Donald Trump has won their hearts and minds. I'm mortified by the thought. This is our nominee?
I fear that Trump has entered the same Zone reserved for Barack Obama back in 2008 where almost nothing he says or does will be counted as a strike against him. Supporters don't care: he's their guy. Trump is aided by a weak field of undistinguished senators and a general backlash against all establishment candidates, the same phenomenon that is elevating Bernie Sanders.
Geez, do I have to vote for Rubio? Is he our only hope? Can I write in "NOT TRUMP" and erase a pro-combover vote; does it work that way? It should.
Since my vote usually doesn't count for squat in Massachusetts, I'll probably get a six of IPA and watch Netflix.
Extra - Nate Silver: "And if you are a movement conservative, Trump is arguably a pretty terrible choice, taking your conservative party and remaking it in his unpredictable medley of nationalism, populism and big-government Trumpism." Yep.
