Those boys should smile more, don't you think?


Oh what a night it was in the way Up Nort' state of Wisconsin! It was a night that the punditocrats all said Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders, currently both running second place in delegates in their contests, really needed to win for math reasons and momentum reasons and other reasons probably too. And they winned them, by handy margins!

On the GOP side, there is this whole thing about how Donald Trump's campaign seems sorta kinda like it's falling apart, or maybe it's just hitting a bump in the road. Trump has been turning off lady voters with his FIVE DIFFERENT POSITIONS on abortion, and also by being gross in the general direction of Ted Cruz's wife, Heidi, so much that even Trump's wife Melania -- never hardly ever seen during this campaign -- has been out there saying, "Hey honey, take your short vulgarian fingers off the retweet button!" But would Wisconsin voters be turned off by all the escandalo! rumors about Ted Cruz's Canadian penis crossing the border into lady-ginas he's not married to, and switch to Trump?

APPARENTLY NOT! Cruz beat Trump by 13 BADGERS, which is how they count "points" in Wisconsin.

For the Dems, it was harder to tell what was going to happen, as Bernie has had some MOMENTUM! lately. However, some of the polls showed him winning, while others showed Bernie neck and neck with Hillary, and oh my goodness so nailbiting! But Bernie winned! With his win in Wisconsin, by a margin of 14 BADGERS as of this writing, he has now won six of his last seven contests.

In fact, he said "momentum" a whole bunch of times in his Wisconsin victory speech, which was held in the Wisconsin suburb of Laramie, Wyoming:

Do you want to watch Ted Cruz get a booger on his lip and maybe boink a whore and be generally foreign-born and punchy and smug? Well, he didn't do the booger or the whore thing, but his Wisconsin victory speech featured a whole lot of him thinking this CHANGES EVERYTHING, blah blah blah, Ted Cruz never fucking shuts up when he (occasionally) wins. Here's his speech if you have nothing better to do in life.

What's next? Oh, just the must-win Wyoming Democratic caucuses, which is voted in mostly by cows and and other Wyomingese people who are not named Cheney. But THEN comes the New York Primary on April 19 and that one is like WHOA. Will Trump and Hillary take their turn and win on home turf? Will the Ted Cruz sex scandal SPLODE in the meantime? Guess we will just have to wait until then to find out, since we are not psychic, unless we are. (We are.)

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
