Morning After Open Thread

Well, I don't know about you, but I feel dirty.

Yesterday, New Hampshirens New Hampshire-ites New Hampshirii people from New Hampshire went to the polls. Three hundred and ninety six thousand of them cast their vote for Sanders, Clinton, Trump, Bush, or Kasich.

New Hampshire, you were given the privilege of being one of the first in the nation to cast your vote and you done f*cked up.

It looks like Chris Christie is going to head home to New Jersey to consider his options. Good riddance. You had your chance in 2012 and chickened out.

Jeb "Low Energy" Bush spent $1,150 per vote in New Hampshire only to come in fourth place. At that rate, it will cost him $74,500,000,000.00 to get sixty five million votes in the general election. Jeb and his superpac have spent $70,400,000.00 this cycle and they've won 3 delegates. That's $23,466,666.66 per delegate. At that rate, he would need to spend $26,845,866,666.66 to win the 1,144 delegates necessary for the nomination. Sadly, because of his ego, unlimited access to stupid people's money, and his complete disregard for the well being of the Republican party, it is likely that he will remain in the race until he's puling Jim Gilmore's numbers.

I didn't see the debate, but it appears Rubio's gaffe cost him dearly. He finished a close fifth place behind Bush and Cruz. He needs to come in first or a very, very close second in South Carolina if he wants to stay in this race. I hope Rubio directs his attacks at Bush/Trump and not Ted Cruz. If Rubio fails in South Carolina, it would be a mistake to hurt the only other acceptable not-Trump candidate.

Fiorina, Carson, and Kasich are still in the race for some reason. None of them have a path to the nomination and it'd be better for the party if the debate stage only had 3-4 real contenders on stage.

Cruz had a good showing considering he didn't spend much time or money in New Hampshire.
