Colbert clowns as Cruz and Kasich capitulate

I already wrote "Good riddance, Agenda 21 paranoid" in response to Ted Cruz dropping out, but that wasn't a proper send-off.  Besides, John Kasich ended his campaign the next day.  He needs a good-bye, too.  I'm outsourcing that to Stephen Colbert, who does to Cruz, Kasich, and (again) to Carly Fiorina what he did to Ben Carson, give a "Hunger Games" good-bye in Hungry For Power Games: Dyin' Ted.

Two more Republican tributes have finally fallen, leaving Trump the GOP victor.
Everyone, a toast to the victor!

I think we'll be seeing a lot of "cartoon Donald Trump" between now and November.

Follow over the jump for drinks for the fallen.

I've already toasted iCarly's first exit from the race, so I refer my readers to that post.  Instead, I begin with Kasich.
Now for an appropriate drink.  How about a Columbus Cocktail after Kasich's home town of Columbus, Ohio?
1 1/2 oz gold rum
3/4 oz apricot brandy
1 oz lime juice

Shake briefly with a glassful of crushed ice, and strain into a double-cocktail glass. Add a slice of lime and serve.
Next, Cruz.
Since the original game is playing up Cruz's birthplace, so will I by sharing the Calgary Herald's recipe for Stampede Caesar.
  • Rim: Fresh cracked salt and black pepper with steak spice
  • 1 oz Alberta premium rye whisky
  • 4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 dashes hot sauce
  • 3 pinches steak spice
  • 3 grinds fresh cracked salt and black pepper
  • 1 oz beef stock
  • 3 oz Mott's Clamato Cocktail
  • Garnish: Grilled Alberta flank steak on a skewer
  • Method: Rim a highball glass with citrus and rimmer. Fill the glass to the top with ice. Add the ingredients in the order listed. Stir well to mix the cocktail, and garnish.
The paper even posted a video to show its readers how to make a Stampede-inspired caesar cocktail.

Farewell to these drinks and the rules they accompanied!  That's the good news.  The bad news is that I'll be using Drinks and drinking games for Donald Trump and the GOP debates until Election Day.  I have a hangover already.
