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.
I don’t slight or begrudge Trump. He’s a great marketer.
Did I put a gun to your head and make you post on this thread? You are drawn like a moth to a flame to any and all Sarah Palin threads. What is it about her that drives you to such rage? Did she somehow personally offend you in some way? I seriously would like to know, so I at least would know where you are coming from.
I hope you enjoy your short stay with us. I’m no Nostradamus, but I predict you won’t be here when Baby New Year rolls around.
I just like to call it dumblegunner, cuz humble it ain’t, and dumb it is.
Please no. Please, please, I am begging you. Make the vision go away in my head...and especially in my poor ears.
Even when not running, Sarah Palin still lives rent free in the minds of liberal assholes.
Palin, yes. Trump, no. He’d never go for it anyway. The only person he wants over him is...well, right now, it’s Melania.
Just damn... You’re simply determined to reject the truth of why Palin resigned, aren’t you?
Even on Christmas Day, you can’t find a charitable bone in your body.
IMO, it won’t be the first time he has been shown the gate.
Or the 2nd or 3rd, I’d wager. Go look at his posts.
The bad guys ran her off. No?
Palin. Is. Not. Running. Nerd.
Palin. Is. Not. Running. Nerd.
Bite me, n00b.
Snarky and idiotic, but they would keep things interesting.
And by the way, I know I’m eventually going to sound like a broken record saying this. I don’t care, or rather I care a lot more about winning in 2012 than I care about sounding like a broken record:
If the declared field weren’t a bunch of stumblebums, Palin would well before now no longer have been an issue. But they are, and she is. Either put a boot up these guys’ butts and get them to step up their game, or get used to it.
(And by the way, Donald Trump is not a serious choice for the Republican nomination. Never was, never will be. That he’s treated otherwise this cycle is an even bigger condemnation of the field.)
Yep drivel, you have made it your mission to post your insults on every Palin thread.
Grow up, run for governor or something yourself. Come back after the election.
Careful, don’t get yourself ZOTted again, champ.
