Trumpetuously so

Bill Quick finds some redeeming social value in the Presidential campaign of Donald Trump:

The GOP lineup is desperately trying to find some way to not piss off the base so much that it bolts or stays home, and yet at the same time keep the oligarchs who are financing their campaigns happy. Trump is blowing all that straight to hell.

Still, The Donald is only slightly more Republican than I am, and has actually tossed a few dollars into the massive Clinton money hole, which suggests a position for him on the outside, shooting in:

I hope he ends up going third party. I’m not sure who it would hurt the most — the GOP or the Dems.

You know, just once in my life I’d like to see a Presidential election actually thrown into the House. (And there are, not 435 votes, but fifty.)

    Wonder if the “Clinton Money Hole” bit was angling to maybe get himself a candidate position with President Hilary. Covering all his bases. (Not sure what he’d be qualified to do……dear God, please not Secretary of State, I’d start building a fallout shelter in the backyard *immediately*)

    Er, not “candidate,” “Cabinet.”

    Been too damn long a day.

    Bill Q.’s personal priorities are not that far different from Trump’s, if you think about it: it isn’t simply that they would happily watch the world burn, but that they know they’d get something out of it.

    For Trump, cheap real estate. For Quick, a moment’s much-coveted emotional validation.
