Just as the Donald will say anything to win votes, the GOP now broadcasts it will support anyone who says anything to win power. Is that how to to make Republicans, let alone America, great again? Trump is the perfect, phantom media candidate, talking in such empty constructs angry campers can project whatever they want. And just as "modern conservative philosophy" turns on itself, so Trump suits the GOP. Now we understand why rightwingers will flock to the Donald circus, all locked in talk-radio hallucinations -- pushing angry grievances with nothing about real-world proposals with a chance to lift any Joe the plumber.

Behold: as the GOP isn't really about anything but its own existence, Trump is not about anything but Trump's ego and insatiable status needs. Policy incoherence fits the bill just like empty, undelivered party promises -- today's vaporous blather needs even heavier wedge seasoning to cover the stench of decaying "red meat."

No wonder the primitive Sheldon Adelson loves Trump enough to invest $100 million dollars: who protects billionaire treasures like a permanent member of the club, a guy whose self-esteem comes down to simply being rich? Trump the faux populist disrupter turns rather Republican after all: the unprincipled hustler where winning is all that counts.

No wonder hypocritical rightwingers are bitching and moaning -- look how badly their cover is blown! But soon enough nearly all doubters will join the campaign cult of Trump. He serves the oligarchy, even weakly stitching together the joke of party unity -- and, in the Trumpster's favor, will run a stronger campaign against Hillary than the other, appalling, aptly out-hustled primary losers. What a lesson for a party with a learning curve! Are you Democrats listening?
