Tonight has been an incredible time to be alive. Donald J. Trump has now locked up the Republican nomination for president. Ted Cruz dropped out after the humiliating defeat he suffered in Indiana and that handed the nomination to The Donald. But the most amusing part of all this is how so many Cuckservatives and #NeverTrump goons are abandoning the party and throwing a fit on Twitter.
It’s a veritable Trail of Tears.
Goodbye, Republican Party.

Much to my deep chagrin (& astonishment ~8 months ago), for the 1st time in my life, I will not support the GOP nominee for president.

For the first time since turning 18, I will not vote for the Republican candidate for President.

Well, there goes my time as a Republican. We'll be changing our party affiliations tomorrow. Frankly, I feel relieved to do it. Free even.

If Cruz concedes tonight, I’m no longer a Republican. If he endorses Trump, I am running for president in 2020.

Just asked the RNC to remove me from all their mailing lists because I'm leaving the party. That felt good.

Please libertarians, nominate a sensible candidate. This is your moment.

The Republican Party is dead to me. It obviously doesn't represent my values anymore.

I’ll be updating this column as the night goes along, but that’s just the short list of formerly Republican pundits who are throwing a fit right now.
Man, this is going to be a really fun week.
UPDATE: From Erick Erickson’s site, The Resurgent…
Ted Cruz is ending his Presidential campaign.
That is a sad way to end the Republican Party, handing it over to a man supported by white supremacists and neo-Nazis.
