Skip to comments.Empire editorial: Palin/Trump in 2012 - a marketing dream team (Bucket required!)
Posted on 12/25/2011 4:47:05 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Donald Trump delivered a special Christmas gift to editorial cartoonists, comedians and the late-night talk show hosts they write for when news broke Friday that The Donald is leaving the Grand Old Party to keep his options open for an independent Republican presidential bid in 2012.
This also, or course, would be a gift for the Democratic Party due to the loss of a juicy target like Herman Cain, the self-destruction of Michele Bachmann and the increasing marginalization of contenders like Ron Paul, John Huntsman and that guy from Texas who forgets things and falls asleep during debates.
Facing a Newt Gingrich or a Mitt Romney becomes ever-easier for the president when the birthers who think Barack Obama is our modern Manchurian Candidate have to decide whether to follow a candidate with at least one clue or rush like lemmings off a philosophical cliff behind a tea party flavor-of-the-week like Trump.
Every candidate needs a sidekick, and we have the perfect choice. Who has the scruffiness of a soccer mom and the lipstick of a pitbull, all wrapped up in the mystique that comes from living next to a biologically-dead lake in the wilds of urban Wasilla? Who has the experience of trekking down the national campaign trail, with the added benefit of several months as governor of an oil-producing state?
Donald Trump and Sarah Palin will be a dream team. They should be the next big Alaska-based reality show. More dirt than Gold Rush Alaska, more hard landings than Flying Wild Alaska and far more dangerous to Americas political future than The Deadliest Catch is to the boat crews its Discoverys Trump/Palin in 2012.
Pairing up a man who cant stop talking with a woman who mangles the English language as well as history its a natural choice and rife with possibilities. Will the Donald debate himself? Will Sarah read a newspaper and remember its name, much less the contents?
Please, Mr. Trump, the next Alaska tourism season will start just as your next season of The Apprentice ends. Its perfect timing. Extra attention never hurts Alaskas economy, and Palin can probably deliver whichever state she spends the most time in, unless that state is Alaska.
We appreciate your spirit of sharing, Mr. Trump. You are a guy whose lawyer says has pledged to use his personal wealth to level the playing field against incumbent Obama. (You might want to watch Citizen Kane, and then check the real history of William Randolph Hearst first, though. They say the smartest politicos use other peoples money.)
Should you take our sound advice, Mr. Trump, and take on our former governor, we caution you to also take a step Sen. John McCain apparently gave little attention to during his last run with Palin check her references.
The writing was mediocre. The humor was poor. The facts were inconsistent. The tone was mean. What was the point again?
The point is that some jerks had nothing better to do on Christmas that write and publish this drivel.
Don’t misunderstand, I was not slamming the poster. I was slamming the drivel itself. My question was what was the point of them publishing....
I wan not slamming the poster either.
No thanks to Donald Trump, who didn’t know the difference between Obama, Pelosi, and Reid in his 2010 support for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.
Apparently it worked like a charm on her too.
Drove her right out. How would you like a president like that?
Couple of strongly worded "frivolous" letters from the U.N. and poof!
Man up, Sarah! ;^)
Too bad she didn’t have “humblegunner” and his ilk there to pay her seven digit legal bills, then maybe she’d still be governor of Alaska, huh?
Whine all you like about the reasons for it.
It happened, and was made to happen by her enemies.
It was a defeat.
How was it not?
Come on everyone! Trump is never going to run for President. He is making noise for his Apprentice Show and pitching a book. The more he is in the news the more his brands retain their value. He can’t run. He has a contract with ABC that runs through May 2013, when his show ends. Now, unless we have a brokered convention the choices for President and Veep will be known around then. Also, about that time, Trump will have another book or he will be all over the airways extolling the success of his show(It’ll be #1 in its time slot), He will tell everyone how successful he was in writing the most read business book...Ehvuh(The Art of the Deal) and then he will tell you how “fabulous” his latest book is.
This will be interspersed with talk about Mara Lago(The most beautiful home in America), his gold courses and that he is a very good and competitive player(Anyone who plays at these places wants to come back in a “Have to” way. From there it will close about his casinos in AC, his fabulous properties around the world and talk will be about his latest building project(WhoreAldo! We build the most Beautiful properties in the Wohld!) IT’S YOOGE! A little smattering about his cash position and how he is buying properties....... Yada, Yada Yada.....
Trump is not running and has never been serious about the Presidency. Besides, anyone think he’d be chosen in a brokered convention?
Anyone? Baloney? Anyone?
So you blame the victims of 9/11, Pearl Harbor, the Holocaust, the Bataan Death March and the Obama economy too? Those are all “defeats” as you say.
"China, you're %&*#!"
I am glad to see you take time out from all the family fun, to post your usual drivel about a woman that has a little more class than you.
Oh, and pinging all your backup squad only underlines the weakness of your position.
If and when you feel able to defend your position by yourself
I’ll be happy to participate.
You’ve got to give him credit for getting millions of dollars of free publicity at the drop of a hat. Not many other businessmen could pull that off.
Did all of those victims, like Sarah Palin, quit their jobs right after being smeared by liberal lies, too?
I’m sorry, am I somehow misinformed?
She completed her term as Governor?
She was not driven out by frivolous lawsuits?
