Hey, nice wolverine

So this one day, one of my co-workers comes in wearing this huge, godawful ugly wig — forget matching her hair color, it didn’t seem to match her species. And my boss leaned over to me and said, “Ah. I see Christine has come to work with a wolverine on her head today.”

That’s how I always think of Trump — that guy with the wolverine on his head.

I share my vision with you. You’re welcome.

That’s all I know about him — rich, wolverine on head — so I don’t really have an opinion on a Trump presidential run. I’ll make a couple of predictions, though.

First, they’re going to call this “the most important election of our lives.” That’s an easy call; they always do. And it’s almost always true.

Second, the gosh-darned importance of this election will be cited as the reason Sarah Palin really shouldn’t run, there’s a dear (but somehow won’t be a factor with Donald Trump’s little vanity project).

Maybe Trump can form a ticket with Ron Paul… If we’re going for the horror movie motif, no sense settling for Grade B when we can move easily to Grade C.

Hey, at least the Trumpster recognizes there are valid questions about The One’s eligibility. Unlike Pawlenty, who says if it’s good enough for CNN, it’s good enough for him!

Sorry, Stoaty, but whenever I hear “wolverines”, I see this.

There is NO WAY that I will EVAH associate Trumped with a Wolverine.

But thanks for sharing your vision; I can see where it comes from.

I ain’t gonna be nice about this. Fuck Trump. He’s a scumbag. He knew he didn’t have the money to pay the people who were building the Taj in Atlatic City but he kept going any way. Sound like anyone else we know.

If my choices are Trump and Obama I vote Stalin. That way I deserve to be in hell.

I’m not a Trump fan, but I am enjoying all the hullabaloo he’s causing. 🙂

I’m liking Trump.

But the hair’s got to go.
Imagine what it would look like in the frozen winds of Reykjavik. (Or in three years.)

If he’s serious, he’ll get a proper haircut, and declare his independence. Other than that, he will be, most likely, the only one to set some fire over the issues in the next few months. That in itself is worth the hair headlines.

Just think… If Trump wins the White House, we can have the Ms. America pageant on the South Lawn…. 😉

Meh, let Donnie spend his money. He ain’t goin’ nowhere, whether he knows it or not.

But I’m sure the TV folks will be happy to run his ads.

Would I want Trump to be in the White House? Given any better choice, certainly not. Would I prefer him over the White House’s ‘Present’ occupant? Absolutely. A lot of poilitics is about ‘diplomacy’, which IMHO is nearly the antithesis of savvy, adroit, deal-making. So that, for me, is a big question in how he would operate.

Would I like to see Trump as a player in the election process? Absolutely. Oh, what I wouldn’t give to see him in a formal debate with Chicago Jesus. Unfortunately, that’d only happen if he was the GOP nominee. But, oh, can you imagine BO, sans teleprompter, up agianst the Donald?

…Uh… Let me be clear… No, You’re fired!

That image is actually an improvement – I think he should go with it.

Oh, and yes – if it got down to it I’d vote for Zippy Pinhead over our current WH resident. An old basket of fruit would be a huge improvement.

Too bad we need something more to keep from having to get “Rosetta Stone: Mandarin”.

Pikers, if Trump were an evil genius he would run as a (D) and sue at the state level to keep Obama off the ballot in every single primary.

And if the Donald actually won the (D) nomination that way, I’d be forced to grudgingly respect him. I still wouldn’t vote for him unless Newt somehow won the (R) nomination, though.

If you haven’t watched it, checkout the NBC interview of Trump. He does great. I hope he goes as far as the debates; we need these ideas out there and mainstreamed.

We do, and that’s exactly why I’m enjoying the hullabaloo. He’s saying things that need to be said but most on the right can’t say them because they’d be accused of all sorts of bad stuff, pick your “ism”. Trump, not a serious candidate, can say it all because it won’t hurt him one bit and it will help the serious candidates.

I hope. 🙂

Post will be late today. I slung together a quick video, and it’s taking FOREVER to upload to YouTube.

Stupid asynchronous slow upload speeds!

Apparently you Americans get upset it foreigners point out that you have a black sub-human half-breed knuckle dragging Nigger in the Whitehouse?

Most of the world can’t work out why you would have a Negroid in a position of power?

Sorry Weasel – Abrams got there first. Back in 2004, even.

Another vanity presidency? Given the precedents, would he even take the job unless promised a Nobel Peace Prize _and_ a Nobel Prize for Physics and an option on being Pope?

One thing about Trump – in 2005, he testified before Congress about the project to renovate the UN Building, and he was scathing. See

Trump had talked to the guy in charge, and asked him what the heating system of the building was. The guy didn’t know.

He noted that the UN had paid immense fees to architects, and still had no completed plans. He pays millions to architects – $1.5 million for Trump Tower in Chicago – but he gets the work done. They had spent $27 million for nothing.

The project was budgeted at $1.5 billion, but he predicted it would cost $3 to $3.5 billion – because the UN didn’t know what it was doing. And he also asserted that he could do it for $700 million. (He has rehabbed larger buildings in New York for less.)

I have a lot of problems with Trump, but at least he has a realistic view of the UN. (“gross incompetence, or something far worse than that.”)

While it’d be nice to have a POTUS who actually, you know, has worked in the private sector… It’d also be nice to have one whose work in the private sector hasn’t, you know, been pockmarked with bankrupcies… and a GOP party candidate who has at least a passing familiarity with the GOP party platform…

Perhaps I wish for too much…
