Okay — who is more detestable right now? Is it Nancy Pelosi, with her “I have dirt on Newt Gingrich?” Ugh. Good luck with that, Nancy — and did you run this new flash past President Obama? Because it ain’t what Obama supporters expect or want from him. Are those famous beads around your neck cutting off the circulation to your brain?
Or is it Gingrich himself, a frighteningly Napoleonic figure who believes he is a “historian” but is simply a nasty old egomaniac? I hope America never gets cancer — Newt will be out of the house and screwing another country in a minute.
Or is it Donald Trump, who has positioned himself as the kingmaker of the Republican party, the arbiter mediocre, if you please.
Actually, it is the press, who covers Mr. Trump, that gives Mr. wOw severe symptoms of an angina attack. Do any of the pundits who savage Mr. Trump realize he would wither and die if … they didn’t savage him? Trump’s clownish carrying on should be ignored. CNN and MSNBC would be wise never to mention his name again, as he beckons each Republican candidate to come and kiss his ring. They should not take his on-air phone calls (Chuck Todd suffered for that, recently!) Let FOX do what it does — they can’t be stopped, and they are so much better organized than the more liberal outlets. Sorry, they just are.
Trump has dragged the American political scene to old-time lows. He is figure out of the first hundred years of American history — a total blowhard and unrepentant bully who will say anything to heighten his own profile and ingratiate himself with whatever party is in power. The fact that he is not even a politician makes the whole thing more grotesque.
Oh, yeah — I know. I’m talking about him, so I am not taking my own advice. But nobody will take my advice, so why hold back?
I raise three cheers to Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman, who have refused to become a part of the Trump “debate” circus. If Ron Paul didn’t have a chance — my vote would be a symbolic waste — and if Huntsman wasn’t a Republican, I might vote for them, on their refusals alone.
Even you Republicans out there — you have to be ashamed and alarmed at what your candidates will do, re: bowing, groveling to Mr. Trump. Is that the president you want? Think about it.
