Newt Gingrich (who is obviously part of the Borg): Trump cannot be denied
Instapundit: Choose your destructor, What a wonderful time to be alive, Mr. Brooks is confused, Dems gave us Trump, It's Over, Part I, Why Rubio is out, Republican voters feel betrayed by GOP, Preparing for the post apocalyptic conservative movement and the reckoning (2008)
Actually I do not think resistance is futile, but I was prompted to do this given Jonah Goldberg's tweet below:
I do not believe a plurality translates into an automatic nomination---although if Trump starts landing more than 50% of the vote that is a whole different thing. At that point, he may even come into the convention with enough delegates to clinch it..@JonahNRO so long this is not your view, I figure there's a chance #TrumpTuesday #ResistanceIsFutile @AceofSpadesHQ pic.twitter.com/9m00CT4EQ2— Evi L.

But right now with Trump taking Florida, Kasich fairly strong in Ohio in exit polls and early results (which like Florida is winner take all), and presumably Cruz competitive elsewhere--it is looking like there is a possibility of a contested convention.
Limbaugh predicted this: Cruz urged to apologize to Mitch McConnell (can't they just hug it out). Exit polls show voters are really angry with the GOPe. So any brokered convention will be a disaster if they think they will just shove an establishment guy in. That means the Democrats will almost certainly win the general.
If John Podhoretz can resist, so can you!

DRUDGE REPORT: Other than Ohio, looks like big night for Trump. Kasich winning in Ohio ends up helping Trump and one of Ace's commentators describes Kasich pretty wellFrom Raspail over at AceHQ: "Kasich seems like that weird guy in the rest room who pees with his hands on his hips."https://t.co/rZ7lNIyjST— John Rivers (@JohnRiversToo) March 16, 2016

AoSHQ: This is not a good idea (if you want to oppose Trump, let Cruz have the chance to legitimately win--that is your only option right now)
