2016-05-01 – So now the pundits are saying they never thought for a million years that Donald Trump could get as far as he has (while they have been not-so-covertly promoting him all this time with ha-ha-ha free publicity).
Well, let me say that Trumps ascendancy was entirely predictable. Though obnoxiously flamboyant, he was never the most extreme candidate on the Republican side. He never proposed a single program that was to the right of the so-called mainstream candidates. They all wanted walls. They all maligned Mexicans and women. Some more than him. They just spoke in code. He’s in your faces.
They were all odious.
So why wouldn’t it make sense for angry Republicans prefer the out-in-the-open Angry Man to the hateful men who stood on the stage with him and tut-tutted at his Eddie Haskel brashness.
I tut-tut them all.
