How insanely awful is the crop of GOP candidates?

They can't get enough signatures to make the VA ballot and have to resort to lawsuits to get in.

They are either so bad that no one will take the time to get signatures, or so lazy they can't be bothered to do anything but hire lawyers.

It is bad. It's easy to get 10,000 signatures because people will sign those petitions regardless of what party they belong to.

And now they're gonna force people to sign a pledge to vote for a GOP candidate in general if they want to vote in the primary. It's like mother Russia up there.

While the GOP field is poo, the signature collection issues has more to do with poorly run campaigns without a lot of money than it does the quality of the actual candidates.

Really? They can't run a campaign, but somehow they can run a country?

Yeah, they could have turned in thousands of fraudulent sigs like Obama. Man, will they ever learn?

    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles. Then Big Al had 42 in 2013. Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.
