    It’s not rascism, it’s arrogance.

    Punk and his friend got it right.

    He appears likely to have had some contact with the Greys.

    Pundit William Rivers Pitt recently suggested the ( admittedly ) unlikely possibility that The Donald could actually be pulling the mother of all political pranks here…and that he may yet reveal this whole thing is a hoax.

    http://www.truth-out.org/mad-genius-donald-trump

    Silly as it sounds, Pitt does point out that. “Once upon a time, Trump vocally supported a Canadian-style single-payer health care system, a 14% tax on the wealthiest Americans to pay down the debt, and didn’t say a peep about the birther thing until very recently. He has been a lavish donor to many Democrats, including Senator Chuck Schumer, who is despised by the GOP base.”

    Pretty radical shift of attitudes on Trump’s part, if that’s true…almost unebelievable, one might say.

    And let’s face it, if ( I say IF ) Pitt’s right, it wouldn’t be the first time the Tea-Partiers got punk’d. Remember that fake phone-call from David Koch to Scott Walker?

    And then there’s the Yes-Men’s latest stunt.

    Trump’s show on the Golf Channel yesterday was terrible. They kept playing the same clips over and over, about his running for President and scoring high in the polls.

    A racist? Maybe, maybe not. An out of touch self-centered blow hard? Definitely, making him the perfect GOP candidate. And the polls prove it.

    “Racist” has been adopted by a select group of intellectuals, who wish to avoid using their supercharged brains. Global Warming and all that, you know!

    Guys, he’s not running. He would have to reveal his true finances, which have been questioned for years as being in the few-hundred-million range instead of the multi-billion he claims and uses as advertising. He’s merely pumping up watchers for his reality show. He said he would announce his decision on the last episode. What more clues do you need?

    i’m pretty sure he’s still hardcore democrat. this is doing nothing more than illustrating just how ludicrous the republican party has become. punked is the word for it, alright, and he’s punkin’ the jeebers out of ‘em.

    I actually thought it was funny. “I get along with The Blacks.” Bwah hah hah, hilarious.

    @ the comic, though, we don’t say “Massa” anymore.

    Another reason Trump will not run is that he would be whipped by much lesser mortals. A narcissistic egomaniac would find that very difficult to accept.

    Trump has now taken credit for Obama releasing his birth certificate. Nice try, dude. What are you going to run on now? Oh, racism. He claimed with zero evidence that Obama only made it through school as an affirmative action candidate (ignoring the magna bleeep laude Law degree from Harvard), while conveniently ignoring that his own son-in-law got into Harvard based on donating $2.5 million dollars - which became the centerpiece of a book decrying the practices of the Ivy League. (http://tinyurl.com/65wsz5c) Clearly he is irony-deficient.

    “Trump is likely to hand Oliphant his arse on a platter.”

    Spine? Medieval kings had jesters and fools, today pols have caricaturists. It takes more spine to grin and bear it than to wail around how you are disrespected.
