Trump of Donald

Last Night Was the Turning Point in Trump’s Campaign

Donald Trump cleared up one thing in his speech in Charlotte, North Carolina last night: he is running to win.

Throughout this very odd election cycle, some pundits have periodically suggested that Trump wasn’t serious in his run for the presidency. First, it was said that he got into the race simply to garner publicity, to burnish his “brand.” He himself, it was said, was surprised that he did so well in the primaries.

    Whatever he needs to win.
    I could care less if he sacrifices a goat to Ba’al while wearing an SS uniform at his next rally with his hair on fire.
    If he has to be less of an ass-kicker to sell himself to middle America, then that’s what he needs to do.

      Santa Claus hardest hit.

      Seriously, I only learned from a couple of commenters on different sites that Trump bought that truckload of supplies and haven’t seen that reported as frontpage news on any of the “conservative” sites.

      That GodEmperor Trump farcebook page is good including the CNN parody photoshops.

      And I had forgotten about Trump driving off that guy who was attacking someone with a baseball bat. (A newspaper report about it is screencapped at the fb page.) They should refresh people’s memories about that too.

    Anything on a ground game? The election can’t be won at a national but it can be lost at a local level.

    I like the idea of setting up a Hillary Watchdog Channel in case the witch wins. I always thought the conservatives in the US system – because they don’t own the media – lacked a focus point for opposition, such as one has in a Parliamentary system, where a good opposition leader is hammering the government from day one, and, theoretically at least, is given equal media time.
