This Trump character … I’ve seen his ilk before somewhere

18473478-mmmain-1

Watching Donald Trump these last few months, I’ve been dogged by the feeling that he reminds me of somebody … somebody …. maybe some bully in a movie or something? Or a cartoon character?

Much as I tried, I couldn’t put my finger on it. Then it finally hit me:

The guy from “A Christmas Story”! Scott Farkus!

The look, the bullying behavior, the insults … I mean, even the dead raccoon is right.

And if so, I guess this would be the Donald with his little buddy Ted Cruz:

And little Ralphie, who gets picked on and picked on until finally he can’t take it anymore?

As any fan of the movie can tell you, the Ralphie-Farkus confrontation ends with one of the classic whuppings in cinema history.

Now, I very much doubt that tonight’s debate on CNN will result in physical violence. But it’s true that Jeb, the one-time frontrunner, is now polling down in the mid-single digits, and part of the problem has been that he has come across as someone who would let the dynamic Trump steal his lunch money. That’s devastating to any politician, but particularly so in a GOP primary.  According to Politico, Bush backers fear that if Jeb doesn’t throw and land a few figurative punches at Trump during tonight’s CNN debate, “Well, you know, it might be over.”

Of course, I hear that Carly “The Face” Fiorina is out for revenge herself, and might get to Trump first:

Whatever you do, please, don’t ask Trump what that is on her face.

See you back here at 8 p.m. to participate in the flawed process that is democracy. Bring your popcorn. As H.L. Mencken reminded us almost a century ago:

No one in this world, so far as I know — and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me — has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby”

Infraredguy"Carson must be a Racist since he's a Republican"

StraightNoChaser"You must be since you are looking at the color of his skin.  He is a man who does not share the same views that I do and nothing else.  That's how I cast my vote how about you?"

Infraredguy"No kidding, I never said he was a black man, I just said he was a Republican, you said he was black and we all know the Left says Republicans are racists at least when addressing their low information voters."

Ummmm, the first person that mentioned "black" in that exchange was Infraredguy, and you actually said it twice.  Furthermore, if you're talking about someone's race, the "b" in black is capitalized, like Black.

Life must really suck when you're a conservative and have to come to a left-leaning blog and make s**t up just to get attention.  Try backpage.com.  If you have at least $25, you should be able to buy some attention, even if it's only for an hour or so.  LOL!!!

@gotalife You need to thank Trump for attacking the PC police that caused these stupid laws to be created by stupid left wingers like yourself that got this kid in trouble.

@JKLtwo @gotalife Obama created Islamophobia in this country yet he is the one who has been called a Muslim from day one.  I think I have heard it all now.

Donald Trump just said the President does not have the courage.  This from a man who dodged the Vietnam war five times to be a play boy here in the states.  WTF is wrong with that statement?

@Infraredguy @StraightNoChaser Let's see black republican, negro dialect and now Muslim.  I don't have to call you what you are, you are making my case for me every time you open your mouth.  Keep talking so that everyone on this blog can know what I have always known about you from the first post I saw of yours.  You sir are a miserable man who suffers from black phobia, negro phobia, and Islamophobia.

@Infraredguy @StraightNoChaser If you were not looking at the color of his skin why point out Carson?  You could have named any of the candidates on the stage but you said Carson. So I stand by my initial post to you if you don't like it stop posting subliminal messages that deal directly with the color of his skin.

@StraightNoChaser well, your hero Hillary has developed a pretty good Negro dialect she uses when addressing crowds at Black Churches, does that make her a racist ?

@StraightNoChaser OK, the one Hillary used the last time she ran for President was a little weak but this time around, Bill will coach her up

@Infraredguy @StraightNoChaser Too funny the Republicans allowed a foreign leader on our house floor that has donated to their campaigns.  Look to capital hill for the worse abusers of foreign money and you will find both parties are drinking from that cup.

@JKLtwo @StraightNoChaser @Infraredguy Shot glass or tanker cup no one on the house floor should be accepting donations from foreign countries that has been donated with the hope of influencing how this country makes decisions.  WTF is wrong with you?
