John Kasich has won one. Count it, one state - and he's still in the fight

So to those who are throwing in the towel for Bernie:

Get a grip.

3. Kasich won a seat at the convention tonight.

Honestly, I feel he's the most dangerous opponent for us in the GE. He has the ability to hide his madness and sound rational.

7. There is no question he is the scariest and most difficult R to beat.

He projects an aura of rationality that hides his absolutely insane conservatism. The different between him and a Cruz or Mike Lee or Mike Pence...Kasich won't tell ya that he's going to screw ya senseless once he has the job...he'll just do it.

To think that there's a 1 in a bazillion chance that he'll have a seat at the table on a national level - that's just terrifying.

12. I dunno. Cruz is way freakin' scary. He is a Dominionist/ChristianReconstructionist, and that is

VERY scary shit.

4. Interesting

He didn't pull out? I thought his only purpose was to deny Trump Ohio. Maybe he'll stay in a little more to make it look good?

8. The only hope for Kasich is a brokered GOP convention

Where Trump doesn't have enough delegates going into the convention and the establishment unites for Kasich against the candidate who received the most votes and delegates.

It probably won't happen on the GOP side because it would trigger a revolt by the voters. It definitely won't happen on the Democratic side since Hillary IS the DNC establishment and she will have enough delegates. After tonight, it is over. I choose not to live in fantasy land. Bernie was never the favorite, but I thought with a big night tonight he had a real shot. Unfortunately, it was not to be.

9. We back Bernie because we love him.

They back Hillary because she is the ESTABLISHMENT.

Bernie is going to be on our side.

Kasich may be the only elephant standing in short order.

Xipe Totec you are a scholar and I am tarring my bat.
