Our blessing is worth nothing.

Here's a fascinating graphic[1] from the Center for Responsive Politics:

Endorsements from the Beautiful People are wildly out of synch with the early indicators of whom the electorate really favor.

What such a graphic looked like in previous years I don't know. If it's sui generis this year, it looks like the voters have had enough of what's been on the menu for the last 60.

  1. Right now, I'm going on faith - I have a certain confidence in Cruz's master plan. It's hard for me to believe that such a smart man would not have anticipated this series of events.

  2. I was with Cruz in the beginning but now I am for Trump. Time for something completely different. Let us pray.

  3. Ms. Fox, I don't think many people anticipated this. Not the full extent of the lunacy, I mean. Ron Paul tried to sound the alarm on fiscal and monetary excess, an on constitutional decay. I will always appreciate Cruz's courage in standing against the tide in the Senate.

    He's not my first choice for reasons that I need not bore you with. I'm with Mr. Texan on Trump, let it be told. It's time to break a little furniture now. Gordian Knot time.
