Trump The Inevitable

That the clowniest clown in the clown car would out-poll other actual candidates was inevitable, according to Charlie Pierce.

He is the inevitable result of 40 years of political conjuring, mainly by Republicans, but abetted by far too many Democrats as well. He is the inevitable product of anyone who ever argued that our political institutions should be run “like a business.” (Like whose businesses? Like Trump’s? Like Carly Fiorina’s Hewlett Packard?) He is the inevitable product of anyone who ever argued why the government can’t balance its books “the way any American family would.” He is the inevitable result of the deregulated economy that was deregulated out of a well-cultivated wonder and awe directed at the various masters of the universe. Sooner or later, all of this misbegotten magical thinking was going to burp up a clown like Donald Trump.

Well, what did you expect from a party that nominated George W. Bush and considers Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum to be serious candidates for the presidency?  It had to come to this.

Per Bob, Jim Morin in the Miami Herald.

2 barks and woofs on “Trump The Inevitable

  1. QOTD: what voice from on high speaks to these people, telling them the country needs him/her?

    Next cometh Gov. John Kasich, former Fox news opinionator, who knows his future lies in the White House. He already has a couple in Florida and a nice place in Columbus, but a wee small voice beckons him to the lonesome trail in Iowa. Sheesh.
