Just a few weeks ago it would have been unthinkable. The Donald has risen to the top of the Republican race for the presidential nomination. At the same time Hillary keeps losing ground. The vast majority of the electorate does not trust her. Bernie is speaking to large numbers and raising millions in campaign donations. He is looking better all the time. And yet many thoughtful people say that Bernie is too extreme, that he is unelectable.

Is it possible? Could Trump actually win the Republican nomination and then go against a weakened Democrat, Clinton or Sanders? Could Trump actually be elected president of the United States? OMG!

It really is unthinkable, but what if it does happen? New Jersey senior citizen Carl Perrin has his answer. A few years ago he learned that when he was born, his parents were still Canadian citizens. If the unthinkable happens, could he claim dual citizenship? Could he move to Canada

Pollster John Zogby says that Hillary’s campaign is “in trouble… She is frankly sinking like a rock.” Bernie Sanders, according to Zogby, is just an alternative to Hillary. “He is a progressive with flash and bones, but essentially he’s not a very appealing person.”

Sooner or later, the pollster says, somebody else will jump into the race, someone who can electrify the base of the party, possibly Joe Biden or John Kerry. A third name that Zogby didn’t mention is Carl Perrin. Could he be the one? For the time Perrin is not commenting.

Maine Governor Paul LePage endorsed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in his campaign for the Republican nomination for president. Christie is not exactly known for his good manners, but beside the crude LePage, Christie seems like a courtly gentleman. One writer described the men as two peas in a pod.

Christie could not be elected in his own state. His approval rating is only 30 percent. LePage’s approval rating is only 43 percent. He was reelected by having a plurality in a three-man race. So an endorsement by Paul LePage is not going to help Christie. It would be like Dick Cheney endorsing a prominent Democrat. If by chance Christie   is nominated (heaven forbid!), he would lose in both New Jersey and Maine.

After President Obama sang “Amazing Grace” during his eulogy to the victims of the Charleston shooting, Senator Ted Cruz decided to sing during a campaign stop in Iowa. During his speech the senator broke into “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

As he sang, his voiced cracked, and his eyes welled up with tears. The song was followed by 30 seconds of awkward silence. According to sources, Cruz was moved to tears by the Supreme Court’s decision to make gay marriage legal throughout the country.

A spokesperson for the senator denied the allegation that Cruz knew his political career was on the rocks, and he wanted to showboat his talent as a singer. However, if there are any talent agents out there who are interested, they can get in touch with Cruz through his campaign headquarters.

Ted Cruz is a really funny guy. While Joe Biden was mourning the death of his son, Cruz chose to make a joke about the Vice President. Now, just days after a racist shot nine black people in a church in Charleston, South Carolina, Cruz was in Iowa making jokes about gun control.

What is wrong with that guy? He has the sensitivity of a cockroach.
