What's really new here -- except GOP wizards are flatfooted in combatting this know-nothing Birther who looks with Palinesque stupor to John Bolton for military expertise? Bolton is the hyper-partisan Bush-Cheney lawyer-diplomat who joined the National Guard to avoid harms way in the "losing" Vietnam battlefield. It's beyond outlandish for Trump to lie about getting "military" advice from no expert. Is there no body-blow against this buffoonery, gleefully reducing every complex problem into sneering reductionism?
Thus we return to today's ultimate trumpery, captured with "Trust me. I get things done. I am Trump." That makes his campaign a mock-religious, faith-alone crusade dependent on one deity. And doesn't he deserve a good, old-fashioned campaign motto, reminiscent of his racial bigotry: Trumpery today, Trumpery tomorrow, Trumpery forever? Until Humpty-Trumpty has a great fall. And we can cheer that, too.
