"The Donald" is a Birther

Of course Donald Trump comes out as a that he wants to be the Republican nominee for President. Its become part of the Teabagger litmus test, along with checkmarks in fag bashing, railing against Latinos, wanting to make abortion illegal, and crying reverse racism while using code words like, "He's not 'one of us'" and "he doesn't see America the same way we do", the kind of subtle word play that feeds on redneck America's prejudices and paranoia.

“Everybody that even gives any hint of being a birther — a word you didn’t use — even a little bit of a hint like ‘gee, you know, maybe, just maybe this much of chance,’ they label them as an idiot,” he told Banfield.

“Let me tell you, I’m a really smart guy,” Trump continued. “I was a really good student at the best school in the country. The reason I have a little doubt — just a little — is because he grew up and nobody knew him.”

“When you interview people, if I ever got the nomination, if I ever decide to run, you may go back and interview people from my kindergarten. They’ll remember me. Nobody ever comes forward. Nobody knows who he is until later in his life.”

"the Donald" and his comments outline just how cynical this party is and how they'll attack Obama in 2012: the GOP know that he's an American citizen, that he wasn't born in Kenya, and that he's a practicing Christian man. They also know that the Teabaggers and the stupid folk don't know this, or are looking for an excuse - any excuse - to distrust him.

Stupid Donald. He is on the cover of the latest Utne. Intresting takes on the fact the current incharge rich people failed the US and the world. And need to be replaced. A world bassed on greed. is doomed to fail. The level of arrogance the rich right wingers display everyday makes even a person like me think that ralphy speak of doomsday will help clean up this world.
