How did that happen?

为什么会这样啊?

Yaaaaaay~

赢喽~

Mo, NOBODY in their right minds put their HQ out front like that! Why the hell would you put your commander under so much risk?

莫莫,没有人会把主帅那样直接丢到前线的。没有人会像你那么瞎搞的。你干啥呢?为什么冒这个不必要的险呢?

Risk and opportunity go hand in hand, Flora. What separates the winners from the losers is how they react to risk.

机会和冒险其实是手拉手的,弗洛拉。胜利者和失败者的区别,只是如何面对危险而已。

I had all the right strategies. The statistics. The money. The tactics. The –

但我的战术!我的统计!我的数据,我的钱,我的战略,我 –

Look. My guy is someone who leads from the front. It’s that simple. He fights for the little guys and everyone can see that. That’s why they follow him. That’s why he wins.

但我那个家伙是个身先士卒的家伙啊。就是这么简单。他为下面的小家伙奋斗,下面的小家伙能看到。他们跟随他难道奇怪吗?他能赢,很奇怪吗?



Hey, you know what, guys? We all saw this one coming a mile away.

伙计们你知道吗?其实这个结果我们大家都能预测到了。

At this point, the race is rapidly coalescing into shape. Trump is the undisputed frontrunner still, though at this point it seems that the establishment is coalescing around Cruz. But before we begin, let me comment a little on the democratic side.

目前来说,特朗普仍然领先,但目前看起来党内的大佬们似乎要挺克鲁斯。但我们八卦共和党前,咱先谈民主党吧。


 

Yes, it’s not subtle. Yes. Hillary and the other party elites have been calling on Sanders to drop out. I don’t know if Fairy!Hillary’s showing him news articles or polls or whatever, but you can see what we’re getting at, right?

这幅画其实并不隐晦。希拉里以及其他的民主党大佬几乎天天叫着总书记,让他退出来。我不知道精灵希拉里到底在给总书记看什么 – 新闻?还是选票比例?还是其他的?但你看出来我们的意思了吧?

Sanders, of course, is having none of it. One of the things that I have noticed consistently is how many news pieces are just outright condescending to him or ignoring him. For the record, while Bernie lost every single contest on March 15th, he managed to recover a bit yesterday, taking Idaho and Utah both at nearly 60 points higher than Hillary. He lost Arizona by about 20 points, but he is favored to win a number of the states coming up, and yes, it will take a miracle for him to come back and beat Clinton now, but this is no longer the age of man, or even the age of heroes. Given that this is a season that coincided with the rise of Trump, I’m not saying anything else other than it’s only over when Sanders chooses to make it over.

当然如果老爷子这么容易就退的话,他就不是老爷子了。我个人观察中,目前主流媒体仍然主要无视以及嘲笑他中。但说句实话,虽然总书记在15号的初选被希拉里打的落花流水,但昨天他确实追上来了一点哦。虽然丢了亚利桑达(20点的区别),但土豆州和内裤教州他都靠60多点的优势来暴打克林顿。我知道怎么说呢,现在他如果要赢的话,他需要一个奇迹。但这已经不是英雄的时代了。这也不是英雄的时代。这是奇迹时代!

(好吧莫根是脑残MCU粉暴露了。)

真的。考虑到这一季节毕竟咱看到了特朗普的雄起,我感觉,直到老爷子自己认输前,他可以一直斗下去的。

If you’re wondering about who the two ladies are in the Democratic side, here’s a hint. The one backing Sanders was the former vice chair of the DNC(Democratic National Committee). She resigned in protest in support of Sanders all the way back when Clinton was beating him in South Carolina. Since we unfortunately do not have shipgirls representing Hawaii, we thought we’d like to give a nod to her here, rather than not mention her at all.

如果你不认识那两位的话,我给点暗示吧。支持总书记那位,是民主党国家委员会的副主席(其一)。她选择了以抗议的方式, 辞职了副主席来挺老爷子。这位并且是在总书记在南卡被希拉里完全打爆的时候加入的。因为我们目前没有夏威夷的舰娘(而这位是夏威夷的),所以我们想让她在这里露脸。

The one backing Hillary happens to be a current representative from Florida. She was formerly part of Hillary’s campaign in 2008, and currently  serves as the chair of the DNC. Yup. No potential conflict of interest here. Nope. Not at all.

另外那位是佛罗里达的人大代表。本来就是希拉里08年选总统的人,现在是民主党国家委员会的主席。美国皿煮是完全公正的,绝对没有任何不公平。绝对没有!真的没有!真的真的真的!

Sidenote: Sanders is fun to draw. Especially his eyebrows.

另外:老爷子其实蛮好玩的。尤其是他的眉毛。基本可以替代表情哦~


Ah, Rubio, Rubio, Rubio…

啊,水哥,水哥,水哥啊…

Isn’t it funny how it ended like this, huh?

果然就是这样就结束了呢。真的好有趣哦。

(我记得这好象是我看中文版F/SN的时候金闪闪的一句话。总之当时给我的感觉,哇,日语翻中文好(装)酷(逼)哦,然后就稀里糊涂的记了下来)

Losing his home state by almost 20 points, his meteoric rise – and fall – will go down in American political history. Already I’m hearing my friends in that discipline use the word “Rubioesque,” used to describe a candidate who seemly had so much potential, yet ultimately, failed to meet those expectations.

在自己老家以20多点的数目被打败,水哥如同流星的升起(以及没落)会在美国政治学历史上留下芳名。我政治学朋友们已经开始用Rubioesque这个词来描述一个看起来有无限潜力的选民,但最终,还是完全没有发挥自己的潜力。

He looked like he was about to cry when he was giving his Florida talk. I don’t blame him. If I were him I think I would have cried, to be honest.

说句实话,他那佛罗里达的讲话我感觉看他都要哭了。不过我如果要是他的话,我直接会哭。真的。

His concessions speech was one of the best speeches I’ve heard from him to date, and partly what inspired us to well, draw his fairy as we did. Deep down inside, I’d like to believe that Rubio isn’t as bad as the media’s making it out to be. I think – if we were to ignore all the mudslinging for a second – that Rubio does genuinely have a positive side. If only he managed to stick to his positive campaign, rather than diving right into dirty politics (such as calling into question Trump’s mini-Trump, for instance), I couldn’t help but to wonder if he could have been, rather than what was.

真的,我认为他那场演讲是我从他那里听到的最棒的一次。最后我们给他精灵版本画成这样也是同样原因。其实,我真心希望水哥并不是媒体说的那样狼心狗肺。我相信,如果我们能暂时无视媒体的各种黑化的话,路标(Lu bi ao,哈哈哈哈中文好有趣~)确实有潜力能亮出他阳光明媚的那一面的。当然,如果,如果,一切都是如果哦。如果他没有开始直接人身攻击(举个例子攻击特朗普的迷你特朗普大小的话),我只是好奇这个后果是否能改变。

注:中国朋友们,当我看到某人说水哥是山寨奥巴马时,我直接笑翻了。太准确啦!

Well, guess what? I guess Fairy!Jeb’s warnings came true. He’s endorsing Cruz now. As of today, Cruz is still in, and Rubio isn’t.

总之,小小灌木的警告确实成真了。昨天他选择了支持克鲁斯。目前克鲁斯还在。水哥呢?

Now, some of the other folks here. First of all, Kasich. I have no idea what we’re going to do with this, but he remains a wild card at this point. Kasich won Ohio handily, but then the GOP establishment positively backstabbed him by immediately telling voters in Utah that a vote for him meant a vote for Trump.


 

啊,其他的梗…首先,州长。唉,我真的不知道下一幅画怎么弄,但我感觉他成为打乱僵局的野马可能不小。州长赢了自己家乡,但共和党大佬们直接背插一刀,告诉选民们在犹他州:不要投他。投他就是特朗普。

I can see why they’re doing it. But man, I just … I just feel like that’s real low, you know. Sure, mathematically it’s hard for him to win (actually, as of now, impossible), but if the GOP is aiming for a brokered convention, why are they shooting him – the last establishment candidate – before the running’s even over?

我理解他们为什么这样做,但天啊,这太卑鄙了。我知道数学上来讲这家伙赢不了,只能靠僵局后开会来拉选民,但如果他们目的是这个的话,大佬们为什么不挺他呢?他毕竟是最后的忠实GOP的死党啊。

Does Kasich know he’s just being a pawn? I mean, I don’t want to give the conspiracy theorists too much credit, but in all seriousness, they’ve GOT to be trying to paradrop in someone that they’d like. I find it incredibly unlikely that they’d take Cruz over Trump.

州长知道他被耍了吗?知道他只是一粒废棋吗?我不想太吹阴谋论,但你知道,如果他们要靠僵局来打到特朗普,那,目前唯一的解释就是他们要空降人进来。否则没有原因不让大家支持州长啊。毕竟他们挑特朗普以及克鲁斯的可能是不高的。

Anyone’s game, folks. All I have to say is that if the GOP IS going to resurrect a guy whose nickname starts with an M and rhymes with something you put on your hands to keep them warm …

要空降的话,空降谁啊?他们不是要复活那位M打头,外号是跟你冬天戴在手上让手取暖的那东西的那位元(常)老(败)级(将)别(军)的大师吧?

Oy hoy yoi, actually you know what. He’ll be amazingly fun for us to draw, but yeah, on second thought, GOP plz self-stump. I can already see how absolutely and hilariously that’ll backfire now.

(莫根用了一个特别纽约/新泽西代表无奈的吐槽音)

你知道吗?算了。如果真是这家伙上来的话我有完美的梗。这家伙会非常好玩的。并且再想想看的话,共和党请自行逗逼。我已经能看到这企划如何完美的失败了。


 

Now, Mr. Cruz. He is the only one left who can realistically challenge Trump. While he didn’t pick up any wins on Mega Tuesday, he did get all 40 of Utah’s delegates yesterday. So he’s definitely still in the running.

好啦,克鲁斯先生了。他是唯一一个能挑战特朗普的人。虽然究级周二他没赢一个州,但昨天他拿下了犹他所有的票数哦。40个呢。所以他当然有竞争能力。

Er, about the guy? First of all, you guys may have see this.

但这家伙?兄弟们来来来来看看这东西。

I kid you not that’s a Ted Cruz coloring book. More than one, in fact. 

我没开玩笑,这是个泰德克鲁斯的填色书。并且不是一本。

I am absolutely not joking. Yes. That is a real thing.

这是真的。我没开玩笑。

Anyways, without making any kind of statement on Mr. Cruz’s drawing ability, his strategy, or why we’ve even brought this up, the thing in his hand is the fabled unity ticket. Cruz-Rubio. An alliance to surpass all alliances. A trump card capable of stumping Trump. A –

我…不想吐槽克鲁斯先生的绘画能力(我看过这家伙的画,嘛,只能说…),他的战略,战术,以及我为什么正在吐槽这个。但你知道他手里攥的那东西是什么吗?那是传说中的合体选票。一个超越所有联盟的联盟,一个能打败特朗普(注:特朗普字义是打倒的意思)的王牌,一个 –

Yeah, never happened.

一个从来没有机会发生的逗逼概念。

(Not saying that it won’t happen in the future – Rubio’s gotta be taking a side at some time, right? But as always, we’ll see!)

(我不会说这个永远不会发生。毕竟水哥需要选择阵营了嘛,但,咱们走着瞧哦!)



So, Trump won Florida. And Missouri. And Illinois. And the Northern Mariana Islands. And North Carolina. And Arizona as of yesterday. I’m pretty sure he’s still on track for the nomination.

然后特朗普赢了佛罗里达。赢了密苏里。赢了伊利诺伊。还有我…根本不知道那个翻译是正确的北马里亚纳群岛。还有北卡。还有亚利桑那。我感觉这家伙好像还在赢啊。

I think we’re going to keep the color theme and go from there. Trump picks up the most hilariously colorful cast of characters going forward that I am at a loss as to who to include next, but honestly, it means that we’re almost never lacking for ideas.

总之呢,我们准备保持他的颜色设计。支持特朗普的人物很有趣。我真的不知道画谁好。但,说实在呢?我们画他总是不缺概念的。

No comment on what’s happening in Europe right now.

我对欧洲目前情况没有任何评论。

I’ve personally noticed an increased intensity in both people attacking Trump and people speaking up in defense of Trump. I’ve grown to appreciate how many organizations that I personally once considered fair are now willing to intentionally misrepresent, distort, magnify, or outright fabricate correlation and association to promote a particular viewpoint.

不过,这几天我发现攻击特朗普的声音特别响亮。但同时也有越来越多的人开始为特朗普说话。我最近才发现有多少我认为应该是公正的组织愿意主动的歪解,放大,缩小,曲解,或者直接创造出假新闻,就是为了推动一个什么固定的观点。

I’m not saying that Trump is necessarily the truth or the light. Far from it. Part of the fun doing this is really getting down to the bottoms of it all, and figuring out what are truths, half-truths, and lies for myself. Part of my research process is that I look at print media (yes! old fashioned newspapers! my university has plenty of subscriptions) first, then I scour the internet, occasionally listen to podcasts or commentary from a variety of networks, and of course, search social media. Sometimes this means diving headfirst into comment sections, though I can tell you now that I can more or less list, off the top of my head, all the common talking points used by both sides at this point.

我不是说特朗普就没说错过话。完全不是那个意思。但我们做这个的亮点就是我感觉去挖掘真理很好玩。我真的认为学习什么是真理,什么是半真理,什么是谎言是很有趣的事情。而我自己观察的过程,其实是先看报纸(对,我们学校有很多真的报纸),搜集网络,有时听听专家评论,然后宅宅社会媒体。有时这表示打开评论区,但我可以告诉你哦,基本上常见论点我都摸的差不多一清二楚了。

Again, I don’t claim to be unbiased. I only try my best to be fair, and I encourage you to do the same. Think about what your opinions are. Ask yourself, why is that right?

如同上次一样,我只能说,我试图保持公平。我希望公平,而不是中立。想想你自己观点是什么吧。问问你自己,为什么这是正确的?

“Because” doesn’t count.

“因为”不是答案。

If you have a reason, ask yourself again, why is that right?

如果你有原因,再问自己一边。为什么那个原因是正确的?

If you still have a reason, then ask yourself again, why is THAT right?

如果你还有原因,再问自己一边。为什么那个原因的原因是正确的?

Ask yourself if you really understand the arguments you’re presenting. Ask yourself if you really have given the matter the consideration it deserves. I’m asking yourself to ask yourself these questions not because I’m trying to convince you of anything. If I were, you would have seen me make my own positions very clear at this point. No. What I’m trying to do is out of respect for your own intellect.

好好问问你自己你是否真的理解你自己的观点吧。这观点论点是你的,还是你只是一只鹦鹉呢?这些很谨慎的话题你花足够时间思考了吗?我只是想问问你这些问题,并不是想说服你什么。如果我想说服你的话我早就把政治观点亮出来了。不。我这只是出于尊敬你的智商做出的选择。

Your brain deserves better than 140 characters and 20 second sound bytes. Your life, too, for that matter, deserves better.

你的大脑理所当然应该得到比140字符或者20秒快评更有意义的营养。你的生命也一样。

Seriously. Get going. Move forward. Aim high. By the very virtue of you being human, you have the capability to soar. Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane and make it fly for you.

真的,不开玩笑,向前走吧。眼睛看的高点。脑袋想的高点。就凭你是人这一点,你能超越自己的。不要坐在飞机里在跑道上等着别人来帮你起飞。你的观点也好,你的生命也好,不要盼望别人替你做你应该做的。

Change your attitude and you’ll gain attitude. Believe me, you’ll love it up here. 

改变你的态度,你自7然会得到高度。相信我吧,当你飞上来后,你会很喜欢这里的。
