Donald Trump's victory speech after winning the Nevada caucuses was more of the usual. At least, mostly. He had plenty of panders for everyone.

The NRA: "We love the Second Amendment, folks. Nobody loves it more than us."

The Greedy Ones: "It's hard for me to turn down money, because that's not what I've done in my life. I grab and grab and grab. I get greedy and money, money, money!"

The Greedier Ones: "I'll tell you what we're going to do. We get greedy, right? Now we're going to get greedy for the United States. We're going to grab and grab and grab!"

The Evangelicals: "It looks like we won by a lot. Evangelicals -- I love the evangelicals. Pastor Jeffress has been so incredible on television and elsewhere."

And let's not forget the Poorly Educated: "So we won with evangelicals. We won the young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated. I love the poorly educated. With the smartest people, with the most loyal people."

He went on to claim he won 46 percent of the Latino vote, but that's highly questionable and based upon some really outlandish entrance polls with a 10 percent margin of error.

Throughout the night, media pundits kept talking about angry voters. Can we just stop talking about angry voters and call them what they are? They're angry bigots. Don't believe me? Check out these guys who showed up at one of the caucus sites:

I do agree that he won the majority of the poorly educated. It's the only explanation for why he keeps winning.

Can you help us out?
