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.”
