How Many Times Must The Mailman’s Son Run For President?

During the primaries leading up to Trump’s eventual nomination for president there was a tiresome, self-inflated idiot far too many Republicans simply could not stomach.  That idiot was John Kasich.
His platform then included immigration amnesty, foreign intervention, Medicaid expansion and only modest resistance to sweeping social change. He espoused his views with a rather grating degree of sanctimony.
Kasich wants to be a good guy, but, even more than that, he wants you to recognize he’s a good guy who’s possibly better than you. He likes to cite Matthew 25, in which Jesus speaks of doing unto “the least of these,” citing it confrontationally to people who question his policies. “You know what I tell them? There’s a book. It’s got a new part and an old part. They put it together. It’s a remarkable book. If you don’t have one, I’ll buy you one. And it talks about how we treat the poor.” 
A commenter at Ace Of Spades demurred, “Kasich seems like that weird guy in the rest room who pees with his hands on his hips.”
He drew ire from Republicans who supported Ted Cruz. Having earned a measly 154 delegates and winning only one contest in his home state of Ohio, he made it much easier for Trump to garner the 1,237 delegates needed to become the nominee of his party without a contested convention.
Marco Rubio, who left the race in March had more delegates than Kasich.
He ignored calls from a growing number of party officials to quit the race, saying he, not Cruz, presented the best option to stop Trump.
His pigheadedness defied all logic.  It reminded me of the ending credits of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off where Ferris comes into a hallway in his bathrobe saying, “You’re still here?  It’s over.  Go home…Go.”
Well, the mailman’s son is teaming up with Colorado’s Democrat governor John Hickenlooper to challenge President Trump in 2020 in what his political advisor John Weaver called a “unity” ticket.
Weaver, it should be noted, was behind the losing presidential bids of John McCain─twice─ and Jon Huntsman.
We always knew he was a closet Democrat.  Maybe the good people of Ohio would prefer he focus on the state’s failing schools, inner city violent crime, the public pension shortfall and the deadly opioid epidemic.
Go home John.  Nobody wanted you in 2016 and they certainly won’t want to support a narcissistic RINO turncoat in 2020.  Just go.
