TRUMP THUMPS THE ESTABLISHMENT IN S. CAROLINA

The Millionaires and Billionaires that make up the Republican Establishment must be sitting on toilets all over this great land of ours doing you-know-what as they watch $300 million plus of their dollars being flushed down the toilet and their wind up dolls drop like flies after once again being trounced by Republican "voters" (what really counts) who are "mad as hell and won't take it anymore."

Even bringing out the big guns didn't even dent the Trump tsunami. Jeb! dragged the whole family on stage an nary got blip. Rubio hung the new Republican poster child and Palin replacement, Nikki Haley, on his arm that brought nothing more than a few photo ops his way.
The sad fact is that Republicans would rather vote for a reality TV show celeb than anything these behind the stage "donors" could come up with. And I say, good for them. It has been so depressing watching these lost souls wander the political landscape looking a for a savior.


Donald Trump has won the South Carolina primary, while Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio are locked in a tight battle for second place.

"Politics: It's tough, it's nasty, it's mean, it's vicious. It's beautiful," Trump declared to his supporters at his victory rally in Spartanburg, S.C.

"Let's put this thing away," the real estate mogul crowed, looking ahead to Super Tuesday fights and boasting again of his big win last week in New Hampshire.

The Palmetto State also claimed the first casualty of the night: after a disappointing finish, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush suspended his campaign.

The brash billionaire was expected to carry the conservative Palmetto State, despite controversies in the past week that have had little impact on his dominance — as usual this election cycle. In last Saturday's debate, Trump attacked former President George W. Bush over his handling of the Iraq War, and on Thursday he tussled with Pope Francis over immigration.

Cruz worked to turn out the state's sizable bloc of evangelical voters, but even among those voters Trump triumphed, according to exit polls. The share of self-described born again Christians increased from four years ago — up to 73 percent compared to 65 percent in 2012. Trump carried those voters with 31 percent of the vote, while Cruz won 27 percent and Rubio got a 22 percent share.
