Washington - The No. 2 Republican in the Senate said on Monday he was worried that Donald Trump could be an “albatross” for Republicans running in other races if he were to win the party’s nomination for president, CNN reported.

“We can’t have a nominee be an albatross around the down-ballot races,” John Cornyn, the Senate majority whip, said when asked if he had concerns about the possibility Trump could win the nomination, according to CNN. “That’s a concern of mine.”

“I think he certainly is a controversial figure,” the Texas senator told CNN. “I think we need someone who can unify the party, as opposed to divide the party.”

These so called Republicans are losers. They had majorities in both houses and yet President Obama ran roughshot over them. They are the albatrosses.

"...Donald Trump could be an “albatross” for Republicans running in other races if he were to win the party’s nomination for president,

IY"H....I'm a grateful Democrat.

One thing I have learned from many of you Luddites, including I suppose you Herr Barbaz, is this:

Reactionary intolerance is a d'oraisa horror when aimed at us...but it's just ducky when aimed by us at others.

I predict this:

The Republican implosion will cost them both the presidential election and the Senate.

B"H for Herr Trump...and the Republican establishment which embraced Tea Party anger, while it won them elections...but are now stuck with the unintended consequences.

It's a hopeful time for us Liberal Democratic, Big Boy,...whose Congresses brought you YOUR religious liberties in this country...and whose Supreme Court Justices upheld YOUR religious liberties by continuing the established legal tradition of interpreting a living and evolving Constitution.

Heil Trump...Heil Cruz...Populist reactionaries both.
