Let’s see. There is ISIS and terrorism. We have the Zika virus. We have a Supreme Court vacancy. Wages are stagnant for most Americans.

Meanwhile, the GOP presidential contenders have all backed off their pledge to support the eventual nominee and they are debating the behavior of a campaign manager. Now that is what I call being on the road to the White House.

You have to figure the new GOP establishment is just going batty.

How many MLB clubs will have new skippers this season?

Sen. Ted Cruz said last night that he can get 85% of the remaining delegates to get to 1,237.  Sure.

I guess you can say Rick Perry is now an ordinary non-voting citizen. He didn’t vote in the recent GOP primary. My 92 years old Dad did. So did my 89 years old Mom. Here is from the Trib:

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry may have stumped for Ted Cruz for president, but there’s no record he voted in this year’s Republican primary in Texas. A spokesman for Perry suggested his ballot may have been lost in the mail.

Perry is registered to vote in Fayette County, about 75 miles east of Austin, where he and his wife Anita moved after he stepped down as governor in 2015.

Fayette County Elections Administrator Dina Bell confirmed by email on Tuesday that Perry requested a mail-in ballot for the March 1 Republican primary and one was given to him on Feb. 1. Bell recalled that Perry showed up in person to get it but that her office never received the completed ballot. 

“A voted ballot was never received from James Richard Perry,” Bell wrote. 

Jeff Miller, Perry’s former campaign manager, insists that Perry filled out the ballot and mailed it in.

Sure! That is what they all say.

Here is the entire Trib story on Perry skipping the primary election: http://www.texastribune.org/2016/03/29/no-record-rick-perry-voted-Texas-primary/.

I was watching the GOP Town Hall last night on CNN and Gov. John Kasich said he had more experience than Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz combined. I agree. Then what he said next prompted this tweet from me:

@JohnKasich says @HillaryClinton has more experience. He is right. #Election2016

You have to give Gov. Kasich credit for being honest.

The Dodgers, Mariners, Marlins, Nationals, and Padres of course will have new skippers this season.

How about these tweets:

Hinch says Fiers, Feldman and Fister will throw in that order following Keuchel and McHugh.

One more in Florida and then the Astros are headed to Houston.

I am ready for sure.
