"Let's have a spelling bee to determine the presidency. I'm guessing we'd get Cruise."

Who is "Cruise?"

Is Tom running ?

Hillary wants it decided by coin toss.

In New Zealand, we had a GPS unit called "Kruse", so we started calling it Ted. But it had a female voice, so she became Theodora.

Great unit, BTW. It told you the culture, history, and geology of the landscape you were driving through.

I hope they are paying royalties to Sheldon Cooper.

I don't get the reference, Tim.

Thanks, Tim. Apropos. Though we liked Theodora, she did get on our nerves sometimes.

That Trump woman is almost as bad as Josh Earnest. I've seen her on TV. Dumb as a rock. She just repeats her idiotic talking points and horse race results. Perfect as a Trump nominee to SCOTUS.

From Obama to Clinton to Cruz, my guess is that they would all misspell t-r-i-l-l-i-o-n. Obama and Clinton misspell b-a-b-y and h-u-m-a-n on a Democrat principle.

I like Hil-liar-ly.

Beldar said...

Droll. Would've been just as funny, though, without the "sexist" part.

Does anyone else think the necklace she is wearing is made of dummy pistol and rifle cartridges? Must be an NRA special!

It's a good thing she isn't running for President, just repeating talking points like Trump and Rubio do.

On the other hand, Cruz is much better than that. He's the last adult in the room (Kasich and Carson are too, but they are way behind).

Not much choice left if you want to vote for the non-talking point candidate.

Cruise? My money's on Cruzio. Either one of the Cubans at this point.

RigelDog said...

Tongue in cheek, I guess, but seriously: I would bet on Cruz because of his extensive legal writing experience and his audiographic memory.

John Henry said...

I have trouble with Hillary. I can never remember whether it has 1 l or 2.

If you look up famous people with first name Hillary, there seems to be a lot with 1 and a lot with 2.

Maybe she is the one spelling it wrong?

I'm pretty sure Tom Cruise is Canadian.

Larvell said...

No, I'm sorry, that's Hillary with two Ls. No presidency for you. On to our next contestant.

Saint Croix said...

I think this is a spot on article about the Hillary-Trump train wreck.

The election nobody wants!

Rich Rostrom said...

First they mention "a spelling bee", then they misspell "Hillary" and "Cruz". The stupid, it burns...

rcommal said...

Is that a trick link? Or one that just doesn't work.

Paul said...

How do you spell 'grifter'? H..I..L..L..A..R..Y!

How do you spell communist 'useful fool'? B..E..R..N..I..E!

How do you spell 'used car salesman'? T..R..U..M..P!

So please folks, vote for anybody but these three. They are all just different forms of herpes.

Laura said...

Missile or Online Guidance System?

Jury's still stuck in the mud. I know the intersection. Got dragged through all the crap I learned back in high school. Pity no one has caught on. Turn the light on. I'll show you my moderate vote.

Saint Croix said...

An endorsement from George W. Bush might be helpful right about now.

Hey Marco! No voice mails, dummy!

Saint Croix said...

"Mr. President. How are you, sir?"

"I'm fine, Marco. How are you?"

"Oh, you know. Drinking a lot of water."

"Right."

"Trying not to make pee jokes."

"Right. You never know when a pee joke might bite you in the ass."

"That's right. I was wondering, sir, are you voting in the Texas primary?"

"Yes I am."

"Would you mind if I ask, who are you voting for?"

"You know, my own father wouldn't endorse me."

"I know!"

"Or Jeb. You got to make it on your own! That's what he said. I said, shit, Dad. What about the good of the country?"

"Did that work?"

"No. He was all, nepotism sucks."

"I'm okay with nepotism."

"I know, right?"

"Of all the -isms, I think nepotism has to be one of the best."

"How are you and Jeb getting along?"

"Not so good."

"Right."

"I might have said something. I can't remember."

"Right!"

"I'm sure it's on youtube, whatever it is. I like your brother."

"I don't think he's going to be endorsing you."

"Yeah, I didn't ask him."

"Or my dad. Or my mom."

"I don't want to cause any family friction."

"You won't."

"Just trying to save the country."

"Right."

"From the forces of evil and tyranny."

"Yeah, that's what Ted said."

Humperdink said...

Endorsements? Marco is furiously working the phones, pleading with McConnell, Ryan and Boehner not to endorse him.

When a comment seems that easy, it is often wise to consider whether one is being set up.

"Not Hilary? How sexist of you."

It's Hillary. Not Hilary.

It sure does!

"Mitch? This is Marco."

"Hey, Marco."

"I want to thank you on this Supreme Court stall you're running. Hold the line, buddy. You're doing great."

"Thanks."

"You rock."

"Thank you."

"Mitch McConnell is the man!"

"Thank you, thank you."

"What do you think about Ted as a Supreme Court nominee?"

"I don't know. He's a troublemaker."

"Yeah, yeah. Let's get him on the Supreme Court. Make some trouble over there."

"Yeah."

"Get him off the campaign trail, and out of the Senate."

"Yeah, yeah!"

"I hear he doesn't like Roe v. Wade."

"Yeah, I don't like it, either. That opinion sucks."

"What do you say, Mitch? Marco for President, Ted for Supreme Court? Speak up! Now is the time for the Grand Old Party to kick some ass."

"That fucking Obama, I hate that guy."

"Hillary."

"Right, right. Hillary. She sucks too."

"Come on Mitch! Hold the line. Save the country. You can do it, brother."

"So you want my endorsement?"

"Yes!"

"I don't know. I got to think about it."
