#TrumpTuesday: Resistance Is Futile?

Newt Gingrich (who is obviously part of the Borg): Trump cannot be denied

Instapundit: Why Rubio is outRepublican voters feel betrayed by GOPPreparing for the post apocalyptic conservative movement and the reckoning (2008)

Actually I do not think resistance is futile, but I was prompted to do this given Jonah Goldberg’s tweet below:

I do not believe a plurality translates into an automatic nomination—although if Trump starts landing more than 50% of the vote that is a whole different thing. At that point, he may even come into the convention with enough delegates to clinch it.

But right now with Trump taking Florida, Kasich fairly strong in Ohio in exit polls and early results (which like Florida is winner take all), and presumably Cruz competitive elsewhere–it is looking like there is a possibility of a contested convention.

Limbaugh predicted this: Cruz urged to apologize to Mitch McConnell (can’t they just hug it out). Exit polls show voters are really angry with the GOPe. So any brokered convention will be a disaster if they think they will just shove an establishment guy in. That means the Democrats will almost certainly win the general.


If John Podhoretz can resist, so can you!
