What do you hope happens in the GOP primary? Not that it matters, I hate when pundits lecture us not to root for this or that bad outcome.
I’m hoping that either Carson, Trump, or Bush wins. Carson and Trump because they’d likely get destroyed in the general and because I’d enjoy being told “both sides do it” when one side is recommending replacing the IRS with tithing or revoking the citizenship of children of undocumented workers. Bush because he’s both a crappier general election candidate and less frightening potential president than Rubio or Walker.
If I’m honest, I’ll admit that I shouldn’t want Carson or Trump to be the nominee because what if some scandal comes up and Hillary goes down and the Carson/Trump presidency brings about the end times? That would be bad.
Nevertheless, I can’t help but want Jeb to go down in flames just because I can’t help but want the opposite of whatever Joe Scarborough and Ron Fournier and other “right-center” assholes want.
