I really did. I was very much looking forward to watching clueless flibbertigibbet Sarah Palin play journalist by “sitting down” with Donald Trump.
I made it four minutes. Maybe you’ll do better.
The worst part about it is that it bored me. I had to laugh when Palin called Trump’s campaign “avant-garde” but after that it was Sarah serving up the softballs and Trump did his usual spiel. The only thing unusual about Trump’s run is its popularity despite its obvious insanity and its proto-fascism. But let’s be real here; the reason why Trump is on top is because the candidates aside him are terrible. Every last one of them, all 4,537,892 of them, are pathetic. You would think that one of them could act presidential and send this guy packing.
Nope. Not a one. Now granted, this is silly season and I expect changes, but so far no one in the Republican party has even shown a kernel of leadership potential. Some fucking gravity. Some common sense. Some… something? Anything? I’m drinking so I’m reminded as I often am of a phrase or a song while I write. I suggest you stop watching that dreadful interview and rock out with Todd Rundgren.
