Trump 2016?

This just in...

As the ratings for his "reality" TV show flag, Donald Trump has made the predicable, next level move in an attempt to remain relevant and raise his speaking fees.

The Donald has leaked the news that he is exploring the possibility of a run for president in 2016.

Read about it at Huffpo.

And, because there is nothing else going on in the world, the mainstream, corporate media, having, perhaps, grown bored with speculation that Hillary Clinton will run in 2016, is running with the story.

Seems legit.

But, The Blog is not worried.

Trump is a relentless self-promoter who knows how to keep his name in the headlines.

His supposed run for president reminds The PC of other famous presidential campaigns.

                                                                        Pat Paulson.

Dave Barry. (Who, The Blog would vote for in a New York minute before he would vote for most serious candidates.)

And, of course, the myriad cartoon characters who have run.


                                                                  Alfred E. Newman

And, of course,

                                                                      Herman Cain

                                                                      Newt Gingrich.

So, The Blog is not ready to get his panties in a bunch over a Trump candidacy.

(Not that The Blog is wearing panties. And, but, NTTAWWT!)

Not yet, anyway.

But, The PC does harbor some trepidation.

After all, two of the most absurd cartoon characters to ever run for the office of President of The United States, actually won and served two terms...
