So, let’s go through what went on while I was on vacation.
No, there is too much. Let me summarize:
- The Republican frontrunner assured America that there is nothing wrong with the size of his genitals. Despite this, he continued to win primaries. He capped off the week with a campaign event where he hocked a bunch of his branded merchandise, some of which turned out not to be his merchandise and attacked those suing him over his bogus university.
- Surprisingly, this was only the second most-nauseating piece of world-leader-genitalia-related news in the last year.
- Despite endorsements, a positive outlook and policy smarts, Marco Rubio sank like a stone. He now appears likely to lose the Florida primary, which would basically finish him as a candidate.
- Ted Cruz surged forward as the only viable rival to Trump at this point. I have my issues with Cruz. But at least he’s better than Trump. As I noted before, I’m not sure if I’d vote for him, but I’d feel a lot less doomed if he were the Republican candidate.
- A socialist won a stunning victory in the Michigan primary, upending a 20-point deficit in the polls.
- Clinton tried to call him out on how he’s going to pay for all his crap. Of course, this elided the problem that we don’t have enough money to pay for our existing load of crap, let alone any of the stuff that Clinton has proposed.
- Telemundo had the temerity to ask Clinton about her scandals and was flayed for it by the pro-Hillary press. She smugly assured us that she will not be indicted. She’s probably right. The elites never are. That’s precisely why millions of Americans are turning desperately to a crackpot commie-sympathizer and crackpot pseudo-billionaire.
In short, the country continued to go to hell in a handbasket whether I was documenting it or not.

I’ll have more to say on several issues. But there’s some comfort in knowing that it’s not just me: our politics is getting stranger by the hour.
