Still whining

The Donald and his acolytes are still whining about the horrible, no-good, evil things that Ted Cruz did to win the delegates in Colorado. What he did was figure out the rules and play by them, while Trump's organization, which wasn't much of an organization at all in Colorado, did not and got skunked. Drudge in particular seems to be in stratospheric dudgeon.

Should we have sympathy for the Trump campaign? Hell no. The rules were out there in August of last year. If you are going to win an election, you need to be organized and have your people in position everywhere you campaign. We're now in the middle of April and the only candidate in the Republican field who has a nationwide organization is Cruz. Trump should have been building an organization all along, but it's increasingly clear that he didn't bother. What does that tell you about his ability to run a national campaign?

It's worth noting that the rules have been in place, apparently, for 156 years. So Drumpf's ignorance of this is akin to a President being ignorant of Marbury v. Madison, which, incidentally, we appear to have.

I wanted to add something witty to say about Voldemort, but just letting speak for himself is all the joy that I need.
