It is funny, but it is also worth reading.

Meh, I lost interest after a couple of paragraphs. Who cares?

Well, I was reading something the other day. A reporter noted that when asked about his plans for health care reform - what would he put in place of Obamacare? (since he plans to repeal it). The answer was "something wonderful", and some non-specific bullshit about competing private plans and crap. All essentially meaningless and unworkable, but the reporter commented that actually, it was basically the same as suggested by all the other GOP "candidates". Which is pretty funny, really, since they're all supposed to be "serious".

So I was interested (and ready to laugh) when somebody suggested trying to treat Trump seriously as a candidate, as if he was running a real election campaign.

Spoiler alert: he isn't.

No, he isn't. He's a rodeo clown trying to steal headlines from Hillary and distract the press, while the real GOP candidates try to come up with some agenda items besides "stop Obama."

Did you see yesterday that Obama suggested Biden run? I don't think he will. He's still hurting over Beau's death, and he hasn't got the infrastructure behind him.

But if Hill has to run against Bernie, she might get her ass kicked.
