Thursday night – August 6, 2015 – is the first GOP televised presidential debate.
Choo-Choo — Choo-Choo!
All aboard the chump train.
Er, the chimp train.
Oh, excuse me, we really meant the TRUMP train.
For the legions of Donald Trump fans we meant no disrespect. We were only pointing out what has only become painfully obvious to most fair-minded, even-keeled observers.
To be fair it would be more accurate to say that the Donald is merely the head chimp among the other 15 chumps.
At last count we had 16 GOP presidential candidates:
With Donald Trump polling at anywhere between 20-24% – Thursday night’s slug fest – (The GOP’s Presidential TV Debate) – should answer once and for all just how VIABLE Donald Trump is as a presidential candidate.
The first thing that comes to mind is that the only real threat to Trump is HIMSELF. If he simply maintains his current PERSONA & Level Of Performance that he has over the last few months that contributed to his dramatic rise to the TOP of the GOP 2016 leader board, then all bets are off and 2016 is going to be a monumental spin-off of “The Apprentice.”
Let’s quickly gloss through the OTHER 15 GOP candidates with a “one-word” assessment as they, respectively, relate to The DONALD!
George Pataki – who?
Bobby Jindal – who?
Chris Christie – fatso!
Rick Perry – dumbo
Scott Walker – gestapo
Ted Cruz – missile
John Kasich – reverend
Marco Rubio – deportado
Carly Fiorina – semolina
Rand Paul – randy
Lindsey Graham – flimsey
Mike Huckabee – snake-oil
Rick Santorum – doggie-style
Ben Carson – parson
Jeb Bush – really!
Trump is just a front-man/stand-in for the 20-25% of the GOP base that is thoroughly pissed off at EVERYTHING & EVERYONE. If he can remain standing and continue talking he’s going to retain that segment and in so doing will keep himself in the thick of things well on into next year, 2016!
He’s got the money, the name recognition and the ways & means to travel & get in front of TV cameras and on radio! He’s a juggernaut who appears virtually unstoppable save for sabotage by his own doing.
Trump is Gulliver and the other GOP candidates are the Lilliputians trying to tie him down to size.
In short, the 2016 GOP Presidential Candidate Group Is Just A Circular Firing Squad. Good Luck, Boys. Like Motel 6, We’ll Leave The Lights On For You.

I’d like to think we’re finally over the “hump”!
