    Sometimes I wonder whether Trump is paying his enemies. They can’t possibly be this stupid politically.

    The only people who are more empty-headed are the people who support Trump.

    Trump has turned conservative politics of bigotry into the Andy Kaufman-esque farce it deserves. He has found the GOP’s inner cretin. This would be utterly hilarious if not for the slim possibility Trump is for real and his campaign is not some elaborate publicity scheme/practical joke.

    The embarrassment many conservatives have, is not that there are so many brain dead bigots willing to vote Republcan. It’s that they have made their presence so obvious. The other GOP candidates make appeals to the same group, but try to be more subtle about it. “Dog whistle” appeals to bigotry instead of open declaration of it.

    Trump, being an experienced reality tv star, knows that audiences love a colorful villain and don’t generally do subtlety. Say what you want about him, but he is a consummate showman.
