I feel as if I’ve written this post before. Or some version of it. Cue the 2012 elections maybe? The 2012 GOP primary maybe?
I don’t know. And I honestly don’t feel like doing the research to find out. It’s VERY late and I need some zzzzzzz’s.
But here’s what’s got me troubled tonight.
Donald Trump is now polling in first place for the GOP nomination. Good ol’ Jebbie is a distant second.
You. Have. Got. To. Be. Kidding. Me.
But no. It’s really true. This week’s Economist/YouGov poll has him in the Numero Uno spot. To be sure, with only 15% of those polled giving their 2 cents worth. But still. The Donald is actually in the running.
This should be some fun debating on the Faux News channel in a few weeks. They made a big deal out of only allowing the top ten candidates to participate in their little fun-fest. Do you think they counted on The Donald being one of them?
I think the most troubling is what does this say about America?
And now, because I’m exhausted and the neurons are not synapsing, I’m simply going to stop discussing this ridiculousness.
I’ll attempt to catch you up on the happenings up here in the soggy, soggy hinterland. Lots to ruminate on.
Vaya con dios mis amigos.
