Hillary Clinton squeaked by in Iowa last night. The vote was so close that in several precincts the winner had to be decided by a coin toss, but the “luck of the Clintons” still shines on them:

Not only that, but after each coin toss, the Clintons invested each flipped quarter in cattle futures and turned them into a few hundred thousand dollars.

On the GOP side, Ted Cruz beat Donald Trump and Marco Rubio by several thousand votes.

Trump’s speech last night was actually fairly gracious, but it was inevitable that he’d start taking it out on voters at some point:

That’s just one notch above, “voters, you’re fired!”

Update:

Remember when I said Trump was fairly gracious after losing to Cruz? That didn’t last long:

    Watched this from a treadmill up at the club and couldn't believe our eyes?

    Even before this came down to Heads I win, Tails you LOSE, the Microsoft "voter app" displayed the Dem results only in percentages..! So Like Bern, we may NEVER know the precise tallies!

    When MM pointed the uh, OBVIOUS, the USAToday linked article only showed (1) response and that was "They're probably overloaded right now, Bashing is Easy! Refresh and check back in a few minutes".

    Okay, so now Microsoft is judged by the same yardstick as a garage start-up or Junior Achievement project? Got it! More stunning, no one stands to win bigger than Bill Gates if Hillary takes the nom, and ultimately the WH. She's the only candidate left that actually supports Common Core! So why so, paranoid..?

    Again, like the 'passing' of Obamacare, the precedent set is to get results QUICKLY ( damn fairness, correctness and, 'transparency' ) Claim VICTORY, and let the 'losing' side fight their case out amongst the Just-a-bloggers!

    Moving on! More incredible, this just after the revelation the Patriots probably stacked the deck with THEIR coin tosses still fresh in the memory of most Americans. Anything to win. The end justifies the…

    And speaking of Microsoft. Their new edge browser is attempting to mark Doug's site as an "unsafe site".

    Big Truthy strikes AGAIN!

    Thankfully a Mac user, but I never see anyone from the base getting their news from CNN etc. getting blocked. Just Drudge readers.

    Getting quite concerned b/c now all the various .mil websites are converging. Update your new address or phone number and… it's on DEERS, virtual personnel etc. etc. It's like MM noted ( in what feels like a lifetime ago ) they're "creating defacto national databases". (para)

    WHY leftists in this country ( whose idea of freedom includes everything from public s_x to cr@pping on squad cars ) don't find this altogether too cozy relationship between Big Tech and this WH 'disturbing' is beyond me?

    Also wanted to note, while I may have been "missing the spirit of an Open Thread" at MM's yesterday, Conservatives really need to Pull.It.TOGETHER!

    Suggestions like "We should just let the S.Koreans and the Japanese fend for themselves…" aren't HELPING! Apparently now, nothing is too ludicrous to suggest?

    I realize the pendulum is finally swinging, and there *is* an awful temptation to throttle control BUT, let's try to have more maturity than Code Pink huh fellas? NOBODY has the kind of political capital to make such a misguided notion work so can we focus on a) getting our OWN IRS back on a leash b) review the validity of every SSDI "claim" that's been submitted since this bozo got in office and c) clean house at the EPA?

    Fighting magical thinking with magical thinking! Yeah, that'll work…

    Missed all that at MM recently as I have been traveling for business (looks like there will be an uptick in travel for me), but it does sound like they are trying to swing the pendulum to far in the other direction. Anyone who has read/studied history realizes the whole "fend for themselves" approach is what gets us into trouble. We don't need to be attempting to nation build, but we need to make sure our allies know we have their backs and expect them to have ours; otherwise our enemies will just pick us off one at a time until no free countries are left.

  9. Marshall_Will on February 8th, 2016 7:52 pm

    Trust me, enjoy your travel time, you're not missing a thing! Recently read, and noticed for myself, plenty of mainstream sites are just closing down the Comments Section altogether.

    It's almost impossible to police and nearly always a liability. Even many of MM's former all-time great posters, that thoughtfully prepared and researched their positions, now just mindlessly blurt out whatever drivel comes to mind.

    It's about cheap shots & snark, while bringing little to nothing of value? I get it, I'm "blog fatigued" ( and just fatigued in GENERAL ) but there is an obligation to responsible Free Speech. And the last thing we need be doing is alienating one another over anything as trivial as choice of candidates? Several posters have gotten particularly and unnecessarily nasty.

    I have noticed the nastiness of late. Seems like many are ready to throttle those that disagree. The travel isn't bad. Getting to see some interesting places and networking is great. It is actually fairly interesting how it all came about. My name is getting out there in a good way and more and more parks are requesting I come out and take care of IT infrastructure and trouble tickets that have languished for a long, long time. I help one park out and they tell another that requests I come out and on and on it goes. With any luck it will lead to a promotion in the not so distant future.
