    omg omg Trump gave in! We win biyotchh!! hahahaha
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    This news saddens me. I was looking forward to volunteering on his campaign.

    First Huckabee stepped out, now Trump. Looks like the field is narrowing.
    With Trump dropping out, the Republican field narrows about as much as it would if Hank Hill announced tomorrow he will not run. Trump was running a business campaign, not a presidential campaign.

    I think it was this night that really put things in perspective for the Donald. A ballroom full of people laughed at his ridiculousness.

    Well... yeah.

    Publicity stunt much?

    Really, what did you win?
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
