John Kasich, Mathematically Eliminated from Winning Nomination, Now Competing in Utah Only to Deny Ted Cruz the 50% Winner-Take-All Threshold and Deliver Delegates to Trump

Kasich is no longer a real candidate, per the math, but now seems to running for the position of Trump's Vice President, running against Cruz to keep Trump in the lead.

Via Allah, Kasich doesn't have a chance in Utah. Neither does Trump, actually, as Mormons are solidly against him.

Yet Kasich is buying ads in Utah -- for no reason other than to keep Cruz below the 50% threshold at which Cruz would invoke the winner-take-all rule and get all 42 of Utah's delegates.

Kasich is a strange and ugly worm of a man, full of vanity, for reasons baffling to all onlookers.

Meanwhile, while most of "Mr. Trump's" spinning chorus is on the same page in claiming Trump only spoke of "riots" as a metaphor, one surrogate forgets which lies she's supposed to tell and says "riots wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing" if a group of people thinks they're being "ignored."

A similar logic was offered to justify the Ferguson riots -- but was angrily countered by some of the same people now threatening riots.

Lenin said that principle was for the weak. It was weak to object to something on principle. The strong man, the wise man, asked "Who? Whom?" before making his decisions about the propriety of an action or tactic -- "Who?" is doing it, and to "Whom?" is it being done?

Only then, when you've figured out whether your Tribe is doing the act in question, could you decide if it was Proper Soviet Thought to support it or condemn it.

And now "Who? Whom?" analysis seems to be en vogue on the right.

What a truly wonderful time to be alive.
