Nobody thinks like Tim.
So let me get this right, Donald Trump is running for president? Hahaha, that's insane! The idea that a moronic businessman with a long record of dim-witted statements could ever become president of the United States.
The Don is doing the best that he can. That alone is enough to scare hell out of anybody.
Great campaign motto!
I nominate Tim and Barry as candidates for the presidency.
Time for some CREDIBLE clowns in the White House!
That's right! Where's BARRY'S birth certificate?
If he's a Democrat he doesn't need one. Perhaps we can ask President Obama where he got his. Can't we buy one at the door?
The reason that I think that Ms. Hillary Rodham Clinton will not get the Demimonde Party nomination has next to nothing to do with her. Though there is enough there to reconsider if you want her as nominee...
No, the reason has to do with the character and nature of Demimonde Party voters in large groups.
Also, while Donald Trump is getting a lot of attention, this too shall pass.
Four years ago at this time, Newt Gingerich was the presumptive Republican Party Candidate. No one was even close. Take a look back at magazine cover articles of the time that covered the former Speaker of the House. And the wild speculation that accompanied it all.
And then people actually went to the polls during the primaries. Leaving a dumb-founded Newt Gingrich and a few many Wizards of Smart.
So, don't get too worked up about Trump yet.
The thought of Trump as President is a absurd notion. But... not REALLY. PLENTY of moronic people have been elected to public office. They USUALLY wait until they've won the election to reveal the full scope of their idiocy and start making dim-witted statements. And when they do, their peers and party minions don't bat an eye. I can qualify this with some hilarious examples if anyone is interested in going down that road. Point being, people DON'T CARE as long as the moron has the right party logo stamped on their forehead.
I have to ask about the use of the word "Deminonde" in the context of this discussion because I honestly don't know. I know what the word means historically but I'm not getting what you're meaning by it or it's connection with "character" of voters.
Historically, "demimonde" were a class of woman on the fringe of society who were supported by wealthy men.
Kind of my view of the Democrat Party. I had previously used more derogatory terms to engender my dislike of the Party, but they seemed to make me sound angry and alarmist, which I am not. Also, the terms I used were in response to how various groups of non-Democrat Party groups were portrayed, which I have not encountered here. So the use of the word demimonde.
I am not a straight line Party voter, though I have yet to come across a Democrat candidate that I could support or whose social and/or fiscal policy proposals that I share. That and the fact that I grew up in a household and with extended family members who voted Democrat (which, believe me I could post a very long diatribe about,) have shaped my view of the party.
Aha- Gotcha. Yea, I get it and I'm right there with you on THAT point, Pookie!
I don't understand why clowns are not coming out in support of Donald Trump. He is, quite clearly, the "clown candidate." (And not in the sense of politicians being considered, dismissively, as clowns.) For, what he is doing is playing the traditional role of court jester.
Good observation, Tim. He's lampooning the whole game of politics and turning it all on it's ear being bombastic and irreverent. I don't know that he'd be a good President and don't see me voting for him but I sure as heck love what he's doing.
That is is not the sole reason that Mr. Trump resonates with some Republican voters.
There is also the fact that he is not playing by the major media outlets rules that when when a Republican politician says or does something deemed "objectionable", or more usually just "wrong", they cower and apologize profusely. Then go on an apology tour and probably "donate" (*wink-wink, nudge-nudge*) to some group claiming injury.
And there is no way that I would vote for him. EVER!!
EXACTLY, Pookie! That ties in with what I was saying. That's Donald's Samson power- It's not his HAIR (which is astounding) but his refusal to play the game and be another mamby-pamby PC tool. He doesn't give a crap about your feelings, he says what everyone is thinking and what everyone needs to hear instead of being a pandering fopdoodle like everyone else playing some goofy political GAME. And that's what politics is now, a stupid game and while everyone dances the same dance controlled by strings attached to the same puppeteers, he's wading in and knocking over the tables and throwing the game pieces on the floor. People conditioned by their party to clap like seals and blindly tow the party line can't handle it. Donald is a master court jester slyly exposing the flaws and weaknesses of the King. When he dies, I would not be surprised if he replaces Genesius as the patron saint of clowns.
Slightly off-topic, but...
I live in what is considered a "Blue State". Driving through my town and county, I have noticed a few campaign signs that have gone up. And all of them are for Sen. Bernie Sanders.
A sign of things to come..?
I really wouldn't be surprised if Bernie got the nomination or even won. The left is always easily swayed by the novelty of someone different making grand promises about hope and change and like magpies hypnotized by a shiny object, will flock to the rallies and polls. Young people who know nothing of economics and romanticize socialism are out in droves twitterpated by this old as dust filthy rich white "progressive" career politician who pretends to be for the little guy.
Sanders is sort of the clown on the left, the yang to Trump's ying.
I wouldn't be surprised if Trump pulled a Ross Perot, who took enough votes away from Bush Senior to elect Clinton. He may actually want to give the presidency to Biden. He is not stupid.
