So at last week’s Republican presidential debates, we saw a conflict of intellectual titans as candidate for Goofball in Chief, Donald Trump, got into it with the Sweetheart of Fox News, Megyn Kelly. In case you missed it, here is a transcript. (It may not be completely accurate; I dozed off a couple of times.)
Anyway, apparently the Donald really stepped into it this time. His invitation to a conservative event this weekend was rescinded by Erick Erickson who felt that Trump’s comments toward Ms. Kelly were out of line. By the way, Mr. Erickson once described a Supreme Court justice as a “goat fucker” and called First Lady Michelle Obama a “Marxist harpy”. So if he thinks Donald Trump went too far, we can trust his judgement on that.
Five days after the debate, Donald Trump has a commanding lead in the polls over all the other Republican candidates. Which of course leaves the heads of various pundits well and truly fucked with.
What's the deal with this guy? How is Donald Trump staying on top of the Republican polls? Can't people see how blitheringly stupid he is? Here's what I think about that.
1) There are people who don't recognize that Donald is stupid because they share the same level of stupid. This probably accounts for the bulk of Trump's support in the polls.
2) There are other people who recognize Donald as stupid but are so pissed off at the other morons all reading from the same worn out play book, the alternative of the Donald doing his own whacked out thing is appealing. No, they don't really think Donald Trump will be or even should be President but damned if everybody else just leaves a cold dead feeling inside.
Which does not bode well for the Republicans, does it? In a room full of wanna be kings, only the court jester is getting any play.
Everyone be good to one another. I've got another post coming up tomorrow.
