Maybe If He Had Bothered To Learn...


...How the RNC delegate system works in caucus states, and the maneuvering that is possible there, if you have your shit together on the ground in those states, he might have been able to cut Cruz off at the knees.

But what we're really talking about here is Trump's ability to manage staff and marshal said resources into an effective task machine, and for that all you need realize is that he had his ass handed to him by the likes of Ted Cruz. I'd be crying too I suppose, but not because the big boys didn't give me what I wanted. No, this is an embarrassment writ large. This is getting sucker punched by a panty waist geek anybody worth their political salt should have seen coming from a mile away.

When you read the article, though, you end up asking yourself this question: What's worse, a whiner in the face of adversity, or a trickster complaining about the other guy's tricks out smarting him, and his own statement there makes this plain:

"The Republican National Committee, they should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this to kind of crap to happen. The rules are no good when they don't count your vote ... like in Colorado," he said on Tuesday at a rally in Rome, New York. "The rules are no good when you have to play dirty tricks to pick up delegates."
