Mixed Nuts

The off-year elections send off mixed messages:
from wins to regulate money in politics
to a loss for healthcare in Kentucky's gov race,
it's a foggy forecast for the year ahead.

The president's pursuing a mixed bag of policies:
banning the box and taking aim at criminal justice,
but putting boots on the ground in Syria,
and pursuing a deeply flawed TPP trade deal.

And then there's the mixed up GOP primary:
Carson rising on inane and insane comments,
Rubio rising as Jeb tries to "fix it,"
and Trump preparing for his SNL turn.

All told, it's a week of mixed politics,
but one thing that's totally clear:
The GOP field is a bunch of mixed nuts.
