With the old-school Republicans unable to fight their way out of a wet paper bag, we have an icon of arrogant idiocy throwing his bad hair into the presidential race.
For the record, I have thought Trump was an asshole of the highest order ever since I first learned of him years ago. And today, my opinion still stands.
He has some business sense, I'll grant that. But as far as any insight or instincts in which he could lead this country? Not a snowball's chance in hell.
In November of 2008, Trump referred to (George W) Bush as "evil," while praising the Kenyan imposter up one side and down the other.
Seem hard to believe? Check this out: Trump calls Bush evil, praises Obama.
Like I said, an asshole of the highest order.
About the only thing Trump has ever done that I even sort of like is his alleged investigation into the Kenyan imposter's seemingly imaginary proof of American citizenship.
But even then, I don't trust Trump. Just don't. Alpha-hotels like him have far too many ulterior motives, and "love of country" ain't one of them.
Trump flip-flops almost as much as the fraud known as John "Swift Boat" Kerry did during his campaign run. And all that flip-flopping tells us is that Trump has his OWN interests well ahead of those of anyone else.
For the record, I don't believe the Kenyan imposter is a U.S. citizen, but I've pretty much moved on from that. We're stuck with the arrogant son of a bitch and the best thing we can do is kick his Jeremiah Wright, muslim loving ass out of office in 2012 with a monumental landslide victory for our side.
Trump is jeopardizing that by just being Trump. And he knows it.
The media loves Trump because he's always good for a sound byte or some juicy gossip or for causing some sort of turd-stirring. So it was no surprise whatsoever when the media announced, via a "poll," that Trump was the number-two runner in a presidential campaign--right behind old-school RINO Mitt Romney.
Of course, another reason Trump may be sitting at an imaginary number two pole position is that the Republicans can't get their stuff together enough to even agree on a platform among themselves.
We have two big factions within the Republican party: The old-school establishment RINOs like McCain, Romney, Newt Gingrich, Karl Rove, et al, and we have the new faces, the up-and-comers like Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachman, Marco Rubio and company.
The old school RINOs can't stand the fact that we're rendering them as irrelevant as an Al Gore sound byte and that we're willing to flush them faster than last night's chili.
So a character like Trump slithers in, throws his hat in the ring, gets some media sound bytes and becomes a darling of the media.
Isn't that exactly what happened in 2008 with McCain?
When will we ever learn?
