Cruz and Kasich Deal Already Fraying

Donald Trump is reveling in the seemingly quick demise of the deal between Cruz and Kasich to divvy up Indiana, New Mexico and a few other states hoping to stop Donald Trump from being the Republican nominee.

The agreement, in which the two candidates agreed to cede forthcoming states to one another — Mr. Kasich would, most crucially, stand down in Indiana’s primary on May 3 to give Mr. Cruz a better chance to defeat Mr. Trump there, while Mr. Cruz would leave Oregon and New Mexico to Mr. Kasich — carried the stench of desperation, but initially it seemed like a breakthrough.

Cruz is apparently putting his hopes on Indiana and California. [More...]

But it may be over for him if he doesn't take Indiana. And Kasich, despite the deal, still has meetings with Republican leaders scheduled in the state.

Voters in Indiana, Mr. Kasich said, “ought to vote for me,” even if he would not be campaigning publicly there. He added, “I don’t see this as any big deal.”

    Ted is deciding on his running mate, according to TPM, and Carly is a front-runner. She would bring a touch of class to that ticket.

    ...when Carly Fiorina adds "class" to you campaign.

    It means you started in negative figures, and she has brought you to a slightly less negative figure.

    double your pleasure: less bubbles than a bottle of Dom Perignon opened in aught eight, and as palatable as pheasant under ground glass.

    such a great place for information and education. :) I didn't know about that kind of mole before, but instantly thought of the movie Water for Chocolate. Further 'research' brought me to this, a Como Agua Para Chocolate Project.

    You can say 'mmmmm' again. :)
