« The Not Ready for Prime-Time Players: Trump Campaign and Pence - This campaign is not amateur hour or minor league. This is a tragedy, inside a calamity, wrapped inside a catastrophe. Not Trump or Pence, I mean the Campaign. | Main | A Boring Biden - Tim Kaine as VP Pick Will Deliver Virginia Plus adds Remarkable Contrast, as an Issues Veep (UPDATED) »

July 20, 2016



I'm breaking my silence to say the GOP dodged a bullet by not nominating Cruz. He came across as a sore loser. Ronald Reagan endorsed Gerald Ford in 1976. Cruz won't get the 2020 nomination even if Trump loses in a landslide. Had he just kept his mouth shut he'd have been a decent candidate in 2020 if Trump loses or 2024 if he wins. Cruz signed a pledge and said he was a man of his word. Now he's just confirmed that the GOPe is just a bunch of Dem-Lites.

Hi Wayne and Catriona

Wayne - thanks. I'll be deleting your comment soon, but wanted you to see this first. Thanks.

Catriona - I don't want to delete your comment before you've had time to move it. Would you mind pls posting it to the thread about the campaign not this one about the jokes. I see you posted there too, so you may have posted accidentially here. I mean the thread on 'The Not Ready for Prime...' thanks! I'll delete this when you've done that or in about a day..

Tomi Ahonen :-)

To all in this thread

PLEASE limit your comments to the JOKES. If you want to post more 'You might be a Republican' jokes, or comment on the above blog, that is fine. DON'T discuss the ELECTION or politics here. Please go to another blog article that discusses politics (immediate previous blog article does that). And obviously tech/mobile readers, pls don't post tech comments here.

I will be policing this comment thread very tightly, you must limit comments to the jokes & joking.

If your plan to grow the economy, improve health care, stop terrorists and foster world peace consists entirely of Hate Hillary, you might be a Republican.

LOL grouch !!!

If you think crumbling bridges, potholes in Ike's Defense Highway system, neglected dams, schools, power plants and airports can be fixed by "Lock her up!", you might be a Republican.

This was so much fun. It made me laugh for hours. I'm getting ready to have a very painful surgery and needed this so much. Thank you to all.

Hi Lynne Marie

Thanks! And congrats! You had 4 of the most popular jokes, so you were in a very funny mood. Hey, good luck with the surgery and I hope they'll do a kind overdose on the painkillers...

For me it was one of the best days of the whole political calendar for this election, just laughing and laughing and laughing... Reminds me of the ridicule we did in a similar way of Dr Ben Carson about half a year ago, and then the old Romnesia jokes we did about Romney in the 2012 election cycle also on Twitter...

Lynne Marie, when I know of another cool hashtag with a fun topic about our fave clowns, I'll go find you on Twitter so we can join that fun too. Now, good luck with the doctors..

Tomi Ahonen :-)

You might be a Republican if... You think Demographics is an update of Hooked on Phonics.

#YouMightBeARepublican Your complete thoughts on any subject can fit on a bumper sticker. Preferably with alliteration (ex: drill baby drill, lock her up).


If you teach your children that Democrat and Demon are just two more ways to spell evil, you might be a Republican.


Had Mr. S. Elop been born in the USA, Donzi could have nominated him a his VP. #YouMightBeARepublican if you regard Canada as part of Northern Mexico.
