Wiretap: Trump and Cruz are furious Kasich won’t quit

Drop out

Ted Cruz is fuming because John Kasich won’t drop out of the race, saying he’s taking votes away from him. And you thought it was the Donald who said he was angry that Kasich won’t drop out of the race because he’s taking votes away from him. Oh, wait. Trump did say that.  Could both be right? Via The New York Times.

Still possible

Eugene Robinson: Don’t count Trump out just yet. Because whatever happens in Wisconsin, he’s still way, way ahead in the delegate count.  Via The Washington Post.

Right direction?

E.J. Dione: This time, Trump really has done it. No really. Seriously, really. Because, Dionne writes, “the instinct that Americans would never choose as their president a clownish peddler of racial and religious stereotypes who made everything up as he went along was right from the start.” Well, wasn’t it? Via The Washington Post.

    Kasich is just another corrupt RINO trying to rob Trump of the nomination for the establishment.
