This election will be truly hilarious* if Hillary is indicted soon. Both establishments hate The Bern AND The Donald. So if they are the two candidates, there will be some sort of “Donkelephant Party” entry, like Paul Ryan.
Sanders and Trump voters are passionate and will stay with them. Thus the bi-party “Anyone But Them!” candidate will likely win.
In this scenario Ted Cruz is the wild-card (yes, I know that combining “Ted Cruz” and “wild-card” seems oxymoronic. Th…us some of the hilarity.)
A third-party candidate winning because half of each major party abandons them? Has anything like that ever happened before?
And don’t blame me: I’m voting for Bill and Opus.
*It’s only hilarious if you know it doesn’t matter who wins. The U.S. is balkanizing; it’s the inevitable twilight of multi-ethnic empires. I’m just hoping that you, my friends and family in all your glorious hues, avoid being trampled in the process.
