John R Kasich will you please go now

Honestly, I have to say I’m impressed at how desperately John Kasich is willing to cling to the delusion that the Kasich for President juggernaut is just around the corner and will be firing up its engines any day now.

Jonah Goldberg has a great editorial today about the Ohio Governor’s vanity run for the White House.

Here’s a taste:

There was an old “Saturday Night Live” fake movie trailer narrated by horror-movie veteran Christopher Lee. John Belushi played a houseguest who couldn’t take a hint from a couple who just wanted to go to bed.
 
The husband tells Belushi, “Look, I don’t want to be rude, but my wife is VERY tired!” Belushi responds by picking up the TV Guide and saying dismissively, “Yeah. . . . Hey, there’s a good movie on tonight! I think I’ll call up some friends and watch it over here!”
 
Then came Lee’s creepy voiceover: “It came without warning! They were just being POLITE! They didn’t realize that they’d be stuck with . . . ‘The Thing That Wouldn’t Leave’!”
 
John Kasich is this election season’s The Thing That Wouldn’t Leave.
 
After investing everything in New Hampshire, Kasich came in second, doing worse than Jon Huntsman had in his race-ending performance in 2012. Kasich’s response? He didn’t just declare victory, he proclaimed, “Tonight, the light overcame the darkness.”
 
Since then, Kasich has lost some 30 contests and won one — in his home state of Ohio. But still, he just won’t go.
 
It’s not just that Kasich can’t take a hint, it’s that he appears to be living in a kind of fantasy world, largely defined by three myths or delusions.

Read the entire column HERE.

Mr. Middle-America, Middle-of-the-Road couldn’t even get 15% of the vote in Middle-America, Middle-of-the-Road Wisconsin, and yet there he is — hanging on to the dream.

Let’s face it. If Kasich were living on Planet Earth and not on Planet Delusion, he would have dropped out two weeks after his one and only win in Ohio once it became painfully obvious that winning his home state provided absolutely zero bounce for the guy.

But Kasich doesn’t live on Planet Earth.

The sanctimonious so-and-so from McKees Rocks, PA just can’t seem to get it through his head that Republican voters just aren’t that into him. What’s worse, Kasich really does believe that all eyes will turn his way if nobody gets the nomination on the first ballot.

That’s not just delusional, it’s kinda sad, deeply embarrassing and really pathetic. The longer he hangs on, the more irritated voters become with the guy.

Goldberg is right. Kasich is the Thing that Wouldn’t Leave.

The time has come.
The time has come.
The time is now.
Just go.
Go.
GO!
I don’t care how.

You can go by foot.
You can go by cow.
John R Kasich will you please go now!

    The “R” in John’s name stands for “Clueless”. (Yes. They spell as well as they take hints!)
