I saw this earlier and thought it was satire

trumpDonald Trump, Trump, Trump. Serious American, serious Christian.

From Duane today:

If you are so inclined, you can attend on Saturday—for only 49 bucks!—a “Family Leadership Summit” in Ames, Iowa, put on by a Christian group called The Family Leader. That group identifies itself this way:

The FAMiLY LEADER champions the principle that God is the ultimate leader of the family. Our goal at The FAMiLY LEADER is to honor and glorify God – not a political party, not a candidate, and not a program. The FAMiLY LEADER is a Christ-centered organization that leads with humility and service to strengthen and protect the family.

The Family Leadership Summit, put on by a group that says it is a non-partisan, Christ-centered organization, features Republicans like Chuck Grassley, Steve King, and Rick Santorum, as well as fast-rising reactionary Ted Cruz from Texas.

Oh, yeah. I almost forgot. Highlighting the evening—the last speaker of the day—is that paragon of Christ-centered living, that champion of God-honoring and God-glorifying behavior, Donald Trump.

Now it’s even more urgent that Trump get back into politics

This is a disaster for we vapid, shallow news junkies and consumers of utter nonsense. Aiken lost. Palin is gone (mostly, give it a few more months). Is it going to have to be all Louis Gomert all the time? Come back Donald, come back. Please.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) announced early Wednesday that she would not seek a fifth term in Congress in 2014 but would keep fighting for the conservative principles that made her a favorite of the tea party movement and, she said, are vital to protecting the United States from moral and economic decline.

Because it’s so much easier to throw stones than waste time on all that problem solving stuff.

Some scandals be a-comin’ her way, so time is of the essence – there are riches out there, waiting to be scooped up before fame fades.

please please please please . . .. oh dear Elvis, please

trumpLet this be so. Please.

Donald Trump has spent more than $1 million on electoral research for a potential presidential run in 2016.

Huge. Very big. Very, very big. Really.

Donald  Trump said on Fox & Friends Monday that he’ll reveal “very big” news about President Barack Obama by Wednesday, but declined to give  any hints about his plan.

“Something very, very big concerning the president of the United States,” he  said. “It’s going to be very big. I know one thing — you will cover it in a very  big fashion.”

From Politico where there’s also video of the historic announcement from this morning’s edition of Fox & Friends.

You’ve no doubt heard by now, but . . .

. . . I’m not one to miss any opportunity to gloat when it involves Donald Trump. The uber vulgarian will not be ‘moderating’ the NewsMax debate.

“It is very important to me that the right Republican candidate be chosen to defeat the failed and very destructive Obama administration, but if that Republican, in my opinion, is not the right candidate, I am not willing to give up my right to run as an Independent candidate,” Trump said in a statement. “Therefore, so that there is no conflict of interest within the Republican Party, I have decided not to be the moderator of the Newsmax debate.”

That ‘conflict of interest’ thing didn’t occur to him until the RSVPs (the ones politely declining his invitation) started rolling in.

Crow pie? Not likely.

Donald is having a big debate and nobody is coming.  Well, noboby who isn’t named Newt Gingrich anyway. (Even Bachmann backed out.)

Cause, I think, for celebration.

Wolf Blitzer is a fool

The man makes my teeth hurt. As here, where his obsequious acceptance of Trump treating him like lower staff, makes CNN look as foolish as this ‘anchor’  who appears to be on air 8 days a week.

Donald Trump triumphant!

I just read a so so sci-fi novel called Flash Forward. It was once a TV series, one I really liked (and that usually guarantees cancellation. The Unusuals, Jericho, Detroit 1-8-7. Ah well.) The series took  the premise of the book and made it exciting and dramatic – which is why I stayed with the book  hoping it would get better. It didn’t. A terrific fictional premise underexploited.

But I did come away with this little gem. Within a list of  things that will be true in 2030 was this:

Donald Trump was building a pyramid in the Nevada desert to house his eventual remains. When done, it will be ten meters taller than the Great Pyramid at Giza.

Giggle, giggle.

Donald Trump as Ross Perot

Attention is a narcotic. And I think Trump is eating it up. I think Mr. Trump  wants it to go on.

He’ll never be the GOP candidate, but he could run as an independent. And if he does, it’ll be 1992 all over again. Ross Perot split the Republican vote in the Presidential election, getting  20,000,000 votes, most of which would otherwise have gone to GHW Bush.

Twenty. Million. Votes.

Twice in 20 years – could signal that the Republican Party is indeed dissolving from within.

Wonder what’s next?

That Trump! Impeccable sources!

I’m actually sorry Obama did this. I don’t believe in responding to conspiracy theorists with facts; it ends up making no difference. Wait for the newly minted pronouncements on what’s wrong with that birth certificate to emerge. They will.

Donald Trump wants to know how Obama got into those Ivy League colleges. He thinks it must be affirmative action, because Trump ‘heard’ that Obama’s grades weren’t all that great.

Donald: quack, quack, quack

This morning Kay – who scoops up good stuff every day – goes to Raw Story and brings back the Donald Trump of the first decade of the 21st century. But of course that was a long long time ago.

FOX News + Donald Trump

Staying classy. And as subtle as ever.

Fox & Friends has announced just the thing for the media nerd that simply can’t get enough of the most attention-grabbing potential 2012 Republican presidential candidates yet: “Mondays with Trump” . . .

Well, he did get the Central Park skating rink back on track

Donald Trump might run for President.

“Advisers to Mr. Trump say that he will decide by June whether to go forward with a Republican presidential bid. The timing is built around his television program, “The Apprentice,” which is scheduled to end by June.”

Elvis help us.
