This has been a weird (but not wacky) week, so I say it’s time for a little wacky to maintain sanity. What’s wackier than politics?

After all, what could be more insane than electing The Donald? I think Cher agrees with me on that … And does anyone believe he wouldn’t declare war on every other nation the second he was sworn in?

Between his pomposity and crackpot beliefs, we’d be in for a world of hurt. If you think the world hates us now, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. (And for those who believe the world didn’t really hate us under Dubya, what the hell are you smokin’?)

And yes, strangely, we’ve had some people write in that they’re offended by the editorial we ran this week with the headline “Send in the clown.” Because The Donald, apparently, is the last great hope for our salvation.

Yes, seriously.

This, from the wonderfully wacky Nick Anderson of the Houston Chronicle, pretty much sums it up, I think.

Perhaps this Donald would be better … OK, no perhaps … he’d definitely be better, even with the pantless rigamarole …

Still, we really could do worse

Jeb(!) is starting to look a lot more electable …

Especially if he uses this campaign sign … well, he’d get the Star Wars geeks, anyway …

  1. Ah! The voice of reason at work here. I seriously cannot understand how those uncaring, illogical people are even supported. Palin gushing over the walking hairpiece? It hurts! Oh, but wait, beleaguered sensibilities, she’s a kook, too.

    Thank you Brenda

  2. I just saw an article that said Donald Trump is polling just behind Jeb Bush in New Hampshire (Jeb Bush 14%, Donald Trump 11%). It’s still early. At least that’s what I keep telling myself.

    • Surely the GOP would realize that having The Donald as its nominee would just hand the election to whoever went up against him. Unless the country has completely gone ’round the bend (PLEASE, NO!!!!).

  3. I agree, although I spotted a neighbor with a Ted Cruz 2016 bumper sticker. Now that Jindal is in the pool of 13 candidates (I may have lost count), I will be interested to see who pulls to the front of the pack.
