As noted by Ace, Donald Trump is what a hobo imagines a rich man to be.
The GOP field is up to at least 12, now. Personally, I’d like to divide them into two teams and put them on “Hell’s Kitchen,” because that would tell us more about them than a bunch of “debates,” which are really nothing more than interviews with scripted questions and scanned answers. (Also, having Gordon Ramsay call Jeb! a donkey would be worth it.) There are four distinct groups of GOP, only one of which should be taken Seriously.
Flawed, but worth voting for: Cruz, Jindal, Paul, Perry, Walker
Establishment hacks: Jeb!, Kasich, Rubio,
Hell no: Graham, Pataki, Christie, Huckabee
Sideshows: Fiorina, Carson, Trump
You could make a case for Rubio in the first group (I don’t trust him) and Perry for the second. And Fiorina may not have a chance, but she’s useful in that she can bring it to Hillary.
It’s hard to get too worked up because I don’t think any Republican could possibly repair the damage Barack Obama has inflicted and continues to inflict on the country.
