And, there was a debate last night. Trump wasn't there. From what I've been reading his absence actually benefited his campaign. My brother, a part-time Methodist Minister and full time Republican hates him, well, let me correct that, the Minister part doesn't hate him, it's the Republican part that's gnashing his teeth. When I told him that Trump was killing the party he wailed "I know, I know!" This is life.
You make your bed and then you sleep in it. If you're a member of a party the festers hate for everyone who disagrees with you - well, you get Trump. He is King of the Birthers. He is a magnet for racism. He has taken the Republican playbook and, after some open modification, made it his own. Trump is the face of the true Republican. And they had a debate last night and he didn't go, and instead of attacking him, the debaters attacked themselves. They are eating their own.
I told my brother that the GOP will soon stand for Gone Old Party, and he lowered his head in disgust as he agreed. "Trump is truly frightening," he said. Well, maybe not if you're a neo-Nazi, racist, fascist, demagogue.
