Presidential Politics Moves To Comedy Central

With each new politically incorrect statement that comes out of Donald Trump's mouth the beltway pundits and political elites loudly proclaim, with great self assurance, that he has finally gone to far or signed with own death warrant etc. etc. etc. And then the next batch of poll data comes out a Trump gains another two points.

No mea culpas from the talking heads over their previous or previous or previous failed predictions just new ones about the latest "Trumpism".

Just a few months months ago we were all being fed the learned wisdom that the 2016 race was going to come down to Clinton vs. Bush and the rest of the candidates and what they said or what the voting public thought was just entertainment and window dressing.

Well here we are today and Jeb Bush has gained about as much traction as a worn out tire on rain slick highway.  Hillary Clinton is increasing being seen as the worn out, vindictive, untrustworthy, political hack has been.  It's hard to say whether it's her poll numbers or the turnouts for her events that are going south the fastest.

The latest headline on Drudge "Democrats for Jeb" links to a story at  Bloomberg news about prominent wealthy Democrats holding fundraisers for Jeb Bush.  An act of desperation both pitiful and laughable.

If one were to ask for a demonstration that there isn't a dime's worth of difference between the elites of the two parties there could be no better one.

The election cycle is nowhere near reaching its peak yet so no doubt there will be a full array of knives brought out and directed at the Donald.  If the current trend continues the political elites will grow even more desperate and desperate people spawn desperate acts. I can only hope that Mr. Trump's security team is numerous, well versed and well paid.
