THE DONALD TRUMPS THEM ALL!
REPUBLICAN CLOWN CAR HAS A NEW HEAD CLOWN
You know, every so often an opportunity for comment comes along that’s so attractive it’s like ticks greedily sucking on the blood of a dog: inevitable, irresistible and innumerable. Not only have the raping Mexican immigrants come to be centered in The Donald’s scattershot shotgun sights but now it’s John McCain in Trump’s laser beam as well. Look, I’m not a fan of McCain, but, hey, whether or not one considers being tortured in a North Vietnamese prison worthy of the label “Hero” the man really doesn’t deserve the “I would have liked my heroes not in prison” from never-served-in-the-military Trump. And, by the way, I certainly would have traded his 356 draft-lottery number for my 134 number back in the day.
I am more thrilled than a homeless guy finding a $20 bill on the sidewalk over the ruckus Trump is foisting on the Republican Party. This time around, the Clown Car didn’t have any sitting Republican Congressmen telling women that they can stop a pregnancy when she is raped or Bain Capital is a job creating company so it had been pretty dull going until Mr. $10 Billion Net Worth Five Times Filing for Bankruptcy Protection Blow Hair blowhard roared into the conductor’s seat on the engine of the Republican crazy train in such a divine comedic fashion. And in true Kansas Brownback and Louisiana Jindal fashion he’s not backing down! I mean this is a true gift and one, I suspect, which may keep on giving for a while. Let’s hope so anyway.
Trump is obviously appealing to his base. You know, that rock solid foundation composed of the congealed secretions of foaming at the mouth right wingers and Tea Baggers who weren’t all that excited with the Republican field thus far. But now they have a champion for their causes in the original birther jerk. Yes, this is going to be a hot time in the old town tonight now that he’s the field’s frontrunner. I’m sure Karl Rove is pleased as punch that The Donald is attracting so much press and his 50,000 attendees in Iowa or wherever that was. After all, the distractions will only serve to make Jeb Bush even more attractive to the conservative-but-not-loony crowd as long as Trump keeps up his wild trumpeting of nonsense pronouncements. I wish him well. The entertainment value is priceless!
On a more serious note, however, if you saw or heard Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s announcement last week, you will know that this man is dangerous. I predict that he’s the one who’s going to give Jeb a hot run for the money. In uber-populist fashion, Walker presented a Reaganesque cornucopia of policies and ideas that will undoubtedly appeal to a broad spectrum of conservatives and even Democrats who aren’t all that happy with Hillary. Problem is, his “program” consists of every Reagan era conservative policy that has led to the stagnation of working and middle class incomes, the destruction of unions, the disappearance of our manufacturing base, $10 an hour, part-time jobs that folks are supposed to live on, massive restrictions on abortions, the wholesale corporatization of America, more incarcerated individuals than anywhere on the planet, to say nothing of laying the groundwork for the disaster that was the Crash of 2008. Trust me on this one; this man is dangerous to America’s health.
Have a good day!
