Or should it be Jocko Drumpfo? Either way, Matt Taibbi makes a good case: the party that foisted Junior on us — for eight very long years — doesn’t have much of a case when it comes to The Donald…is there really any difference between a free range clod and one that’s totally bought and safely owned? Well…only in how the spoils get distributed.
The Roves of the world used Bush’s simplicity to win the White House. Once they got there, they used the levers of power to pillage and scheme like every other gang of rapacious politicians ever. But the plan was never to make ignorance a political principle. It was just a ruse to win office.
Now the situation is the opposite. Now GOP insiders are frantic at the prospect of an uncultured ignoramus winning the presidency. A group of major donors and GOP strategists even wrote out a memo outlining why a super PAC dedicated to stopping Trump was needed…
Washington is freaking out about Trump in a way they never did about Bush. Why? Because Bush was their moron, while Trump is his own moron. That’s really what it comes down to.
