    Seems like he'd have better spiritual sense than to hang out with drunks... I guess not.

    I thought Huck was doing good with his version of hee-haw over on FOX.

    Ah, after he flunks out of the campaign, he'll get his multimillion dollar gig at Fox back.

    I tried to fill in for him, but they thought I was too abrasive
    (just kidding, of course... I got better things to do.)

    Trump is just trying to get elected, that is what it means. Changing one's views from one end to the other as it suits the current attempt at being populistic is a common trait among populists. Romney and Trump have changed their views on abortion, Obama on gay marriage, Carl I Hagen on various things. They don't gain popularity simply because their political views happen to fit the voters of the times but rather because they to a large degree accomodate themselves to how they perceive the voters and make a package out of that that hopefully doesn't seem too unreasonable. Hagen has sometimes managed to seem unreasonable, apart from his shifts in and of themselves. This has something to do with integrity and accountability, the matter of what happens when they get elected rather than what they sound like while they are trying to get elected. Hillary may well have more of those and yet Trump might be the better choice, hypothetically speaking, even if he doesn't. But my hunch about Trump is the same as it was with Romney. He simply wants to become President.

    It doesn't say he hang around with drunks. But if he did, nothing wrong with that. Just like Jesus.

    Trump is blowing hot air most of the time. He will never make it to the White House. He might get two votes, from Truck and John.

    It's the ultimate dream of many rich businessmen worldwide, to make it to the very top. Or at least to spend all that money on enjoying the attempt, after one has gotten tired of spending it on more material things. I'm glad the Norwegian election system doesn't suit rich businessmen, if it had then we probably would have had some contenders trying hard. Whether they would have something to add except money, or not.

    With the world political climate as volatile as it is, it scares me to death to think of Trump as our President. And I'm not exaggerating for effect...it really does scare me.
