It now appears that Donald Trump has an essentially clear path to the Republican Presidential nomination, as Ted Cruz has decided to end his campaign this evening, following thorough thrashing in the Indiana primary.
This is a disheartening result, as Trump is probably the biggest horse's ass that has ever run for president. He's right up there with George Wallace and Henry Wallace, a thoroughgoing scoundrel.
Think about it, seriously. The presumptive Republican standard bearer was on television today accusing his primary rival's father of being an accomplice to Lee Harvey Oswald. How in the hell can this man represent the Republican Party? It's utterly beyond the pale.
Ted Cruz has his faults; of this, there can be no doubt. Still, how on Earth can anyone support someone like Donald Trump? There's nothing remotely entertaining about any of this. It's a dumpster fire of the first magnitude.
