The Gadfly was going to restrain himself from paying much attention to the Kafkaesque wasteland of American politics this week, but like the horrific freeway auto wreck that you just can't turn your eyes from, news (well, not news to The Gadfly anyway) of this came zip lining across the intertoobz:
Donald Trump Extends Lead In New Poll After McCain Comments
Donald Trump’s rise in the Republican contest for the 2016 presidential nomination doesn’t appear to have been slowed much – at least not yet – by the recent controversy over his criticisms of Arizona Sen. John McCain’s war record last weekend. In fact, although Trump’s favorable ratings among Republicans have declined, he is still ahead – and far ahead – when Republicans are asked to choose among the 16 currently announced candidates.
Which simply validates the observation that The Gadfly made in a recent post about Trumps tactics - namely that the nastier and more arrogantly obtuse he gets, it just simply gets the right wing conservatives prematurely ejaculating in their jockey shorts. They love nasty and arrogant and obtuse. Those characteristics in an individual are the embodiment of who they are themselves and as a movement, and Trump, who is about as buffoonish, brutish and conceited as they come, is their dream date presidential candidate come true to life.
And it's only getting better - observe:
No Republican presidential candidate is safe from Donald Trump.
The billionaire businessman set his sights on another contender for the White House Saturday in Iowa, aiming to knock Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker down a peg after reports surfaced of a Walker fundraiser calling Trump a "DumbDumb."
The Republican presidential candidate criticized Walker's handling of the Wisconsin budget, saying the state is "doing terribly" and "in turmoil."
"The roads are a disaster because they don't have any money to rebuild them. They're borrowing money like crazy," Trump said. "They projected a one billion dollar surplus and it turns out to be a deficit of 2.2 billion dollars. And money all over the place."
Oh dear! The billionaire industrialist polluting Koch Brother's pet poodle Scott Walker calls The Donald a "dumb dumb," and The Donald comes roaring back and blares to the world how the Wisconsin Tea Party governor's incompetence has fucked up the economy in that state, which to Trumps credit, is actually the truth. And the red welt on Scott Walker's ass begins to swell from the lashing as he whimpers his way back to safety beneath the Koch's petticoat.
Oh my - where are the smelling salts??!! The Gadfly can only react to this news of the GOPer's ankle biting each other to shreds and meekly allowing the bully Trump to bitch slap them around just one way:
Haha! If Trump keeps this up, come next November, the democrats are going to be offering up legislation to add a likeness of Trump's massive head to Mount Rushmore as political payback for his heroic contribution to the effort at sending Hillary Clinton back to the White House.
This comedy freak show is just getting started dear readers and if the Democrats were smart (not a given sadly) they would keep their mouths shut and let Trump do his damage.
It really is getting to the point of not just pass the popcorn, but pass the nachos and break out the Goobers and Dots as well!
