You will be shocked to learn that “try to be less obviously angry” was not an affect that appealed to Republican primary voters:
Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, who tried carving out a space in the Republican presidential field with a hopeful message built on his life story — the son of a single mother, he rose from poverty to become the only Black Republican in the Senate — announced on Sunday that he was suspending his campaign.
“I think the voters, who are the most remarkable people on the planet, have been really clear that they’re telling me, ‘Not now, Tim,’” Mr. Scott said on Sunday evening on Trey Gowdy’s program on Fox News. “I don’t think they’re saying, Trey, ‘No.’ But I do think they’re saying, ‘Not now.’”
Not now, not tomorrow, not ever.
Probably better all things being equal to be one of the first clowns out of the car, unless you really like Dubuque and Cedar Rapids in the winter.
