As an unabashed liberal I, like many of you, may be looking at the now 16 GOP candidates...this cornucopia of ignorance, with drooling delight at what will be...which must of the easiest progressive occupations of the White House in 2016 ever in the history of American politics.

But, not so fast my left leaning friend. Do not...and I mean DO NOT underestimate this roster of the most bigoted, war mongering morons ever collected.

As repugnant as their collective political platforms are...the Mexican immigrants are lazy, murderous rapists rant, the poor people should work more philosophy, the welfare recipients are drug addled addicts who will all be tested before getting some relief mandate, not to mention the collective disdain that Obama would actually work towards a nuclear deal with Iran which would take away our ability to engage in yet another Middle Eastern conflict...nonsense all...except...

They are resonating with some Americans. And not just a fringe element of America...a wide swath of people who actually agree with this ridiculous pabulum. And as much as I hate to think that some of this crap actually could capture enough of the hearts, minds and votes of the American voter may just work, if one is to listen to the early polling.

And because of one very real statistic, I am considering joining the ever increasing minority who legitimately feel that this once great nation's best days are behind us...

Donald Trump is leading the pack of GOP candidates for the office of President of these United States...arguably the most powerful position in the world...and a large portion of one of our only two political parties deem him worthy of the position. Holy fuck can you imagine. As if we weren't already a laughing stock globally, we now have to live this down.

I hope and pray this polling data was collected solely from residents of trailer parks. Dear Lord, please don't let these ignorant, bigoted, hate filled positions actually represent the views of anything other than a handful of Americans who hopefully do not own guns or get off their couches to vote.

This nation was once too intelligent, too proud and far too great to stand for, let alone agree with any of the verbiage being spewed forth on the campaign trail over the last few months. Please tell me we above this and clowns like Trump and Walker and Fiorina et al...well, we are only keeping them around for comic relief, and a bit of nostalgia for the days when a VP candidate couldn't name one thing she has read, or as much as one Supreme Court case.

But the truth is, this is a horse of a different nature. This is not stupid. This is pure hate. For other peoples, for minorities, for the poor and indigent, for the gay and transgendered, really for any one other than who they are themselves. And that scares the hell out of me. Please be smarter than this, America. Please.

And that is the world...the "World According to Kimba." Thanks for reading.

The political season has just begun and as they say, the field is wide open. Good Lord only knows why some of them run...whether it is fame, ego or a misguided sense that the country needs them, the vast majority of the clown cars on both sides have very little chance of actually being considered...for the office, or being considered as capable of the job.
Last season we almost had a complete moron as our vice president, and that was scary enough, but this year the man who is polling second for the conservatives is as scary as any I have witnessed in my lifetime.
An egotistical bully, an unapologetic bigot (On Mexicans: “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”), a buffoon of gigantic proportions...Donald Trump  is actually running second in the polling for the highest office in the land.  And he is getting traction wherever he goes, as terrifying as that is.
Why? Because he has no filter between his brain and his mouth. And as vile as it seems, his views on immigrants, his views on women and his views on the poor resonate with many Americans. So when he travels the country spewing his hate filled, unrehearsed rants on nearly everything, he gains followers.
At first I thought he was an oddity, a clown whose circus side show will certainly be over in short order...may actually be around for a while. And as embarrassing as it seems...the American public...want it that way.
And maybe, just maybe, the GOP wants it that way as well. Because he has the nerve to lay voice to what truly drives the conservative voters. He is a test balloon for the conservatives, who are laying back judging the tolerance of the American people for his vulgar, offensive and across the board insensitive views.
I would hate to think a major American political party would adopt any of views as a portion of their platform, but at least for now, I think Trumps views actually resonate....with the voters, and with his party.

MORE from the if one run of the mill dirt bag in the race wasn't more than our stomachs could tolerate, here comes one genuine bottom feeder named Scott Walker...check out this quote from Walker...instead of disdaining the ridiculous rhetoric coming from the trump camp, here comes Governor Walker...

“Donald Trump has grabbed a lot of headlines over the past few weeks by spewing bigotry and venom,” Walker told an enthusiastic crowd of supporters. “I want to make it clear that when it comes to those things, I take a back seat to no one.”
