Okay, Can We All Move On Now?

I said it a month ago, and again a week ago -- Trump will not win a single primary and by St Patrick's Day he will be a distant amusing memory.

I was wrong.

He may be a memory by Martin Luther King Day.

Does this really need analysis? He is an empty suit in the political arena. In a field of 16 he picked up 25% support, give or take. When there are four, maybe five, serious candidates in the race, it was kind of easy for a guy with 100% name recognition, specializing in bombast and pandering to the low-brow crowd, to get the attention of every fourth voter early on.

Now all that is over. He's hit his zenith and, simultaneously, brought the Republican's 2016 cycle to its nadir.

Now. Can we please move on from this distraction and start dealing with the substantial weaknesses of the serious candidates?
