Is the Pope Catholic? How about the bear in the woods?

Well, let’s see. The Pope doesn’t think Donald Trump is a Christian because Trump wants to stop illegal immigration, especially across our open southern border. That from a man who not only lives in a walled fortress, but who has his own private army to keep everyone out – he also didn’t show us much when the Nazis were taking over his country in the days preceding WW-II. Maybe he was a kid at the time and thought those SS uniforms were pretty snazzy. Personally, I think the Pope should concentrate on his agenda of legitimizing homosexuality and same sex marriage. Hey, senility is not hampered by religious fervor.

And now “Jeb” has left us after spending over 100 million dollars (That’s ONE HUNDRED MILLION dollars) on a campaign where he showed us as much enthusiasm as yesterday’s plate of cold spaghetti. You don’t think he would have owed any favors had he become president, do you? Nah…that’s crazy thinking.

But don’t give up hope. Even as I write this I am sure that the good ol’ “go along to get along” Republicans like Mitch McConnell and Carl Rove (“Wait for those rural votes to come in!) who just want to keep their nests feathered and fuck America have a plan. Perhaps they will decide to have a “brokered convention.” That might provide enough chaos to stop Donald Trump. It would be funny if it wasn’t so serious. The Great American Public, and I call us great because a few of us are legal citizens, have shown the Republicans in the last two elections that we don’t want another Democrat Party. One is enough. They might as well change their name to Democrats2. It’s going to be fun watching Mitch and Paul Ryan bad-mouthing Trump. What will be even more fun will be Trump’s  response.

It is obvious, except to DC Republicans, that our nation is sick of politics as usual. I’m not going to tell you who to vote for (as long as you don’t give us another pro-Muslim, anti-American socialist) but I will bet on one thing. If Donald Trump can wrest the Presidency from the Republicans, he will not appoint the same old hacks that a Jeb or a Hillary would. He may be brash and unafraid to speak his mind – but what’s wrong with that? And a man who can amass an 11 billion dollar empire, may not know how to fix potholes and build bridges, but he’s smart enough to get the right people to do the jobs. And they won’t be lobbyists and cronies, because he doesn’t owe anything to anyone, except the American people. And many of them have already shown him a vote of confidence. Whatever the outcome, Donald Trump has made this election process interesting. How long has it been since that has been the case?
