Playing Whack A Mole With Wacko Birds

By A.P. Dil­lon

I have the dis­tinct feel­ing most of us are wit­ness­ing a polit­i­cal ver­sion of whack-​a-​mole. How­ever, in this case, it’s now wack0-​birds in place of the moles.

Recently, Don­ald Trump gave out Lind­sey Graham’s cell phone num­ber at a pub­lic event. Lind­sey Gra­ham took a whack back at Trump for ‘sell­ing fear and prej­u­dice’.

John McCain said Don­ald Trump ‘fired up the cra­zies’ ear­lier this month. Don­ald Trump turned around and whacked at John McCain’s war record.

John McCain whacked back at Don­ald Trump but made his response about vet­er­ans over­all; Trump should apol­o­gize to all veterans.

Out­rage over Trump insult­ing McCain’s war record flowed back and forth on Twit­ter in a man­ner that one can only char­ac­ter­ize has simul­ta­ne­ously nau­se­at­ing and hilarious.

Twit­ter and Face­book posts surged. Surely this series of spar­ring will dump Trump out of the polls, right? Nope.

Look, I’m not a Trump fan, I don’t want a celebrity pres­i­dent. I don’t believe he is a con­ser­v­a­tive by any stretch of the imag­i­na­tion. I per­son­ally believe Trump is in this race to be a stalk­ing horse, but for which can­di­date and which side I don’t really know yet.

But Trump’s blunt mes­sages are res­onat­ing with a lot of people.

The peo­ple are tired of Wash­ing­ton liars, of divi­sive nar­ra­tives, a law­less admin­is­tra­tion and of the com­plicit media. In par­tic­u­lar, con­ser­v­a­tive vot­ers are tired of the estab­lish­ment GOP ram­ming crappy, squishy can­di­dates down our throats.

The estab­lish­ment clearly wants Jeb Bush. It might hap­pen with Kasich in the race. Any­one who hasn’t fig­ured it out yet, Kasich is very likely Jeb’s stalk­ing horse for this elec­tion cycle.

Should a Jeb Bush can­di­dacy hap­pen, I know a lot of Com­mon Core moms who will be stay­ing home on elec­tion day.

One part­ing whack:

I have the distinct feeling most of us are witnessing a political version of whack-a-mole. However, in this case, it’s now wack0-birds in place of the moles.

Recently, Donald Trump gave out Lindsey Graham’s cell phone number at a public event. Lindsey Graham took a whack back at Trump for ‘selling fear and prejudice‘.

John McCain said Donald Trump ‘fired up the crazies’ earlier this month. Donald Trump turned around and whacked at John McCain’s war record.

John McCain whacked back at Donald Trump but made his response about veterans overall; Trump should apologize to all veterans.

Outrage over Trump insulting McCain’s war record flowed back and forth on Twitter in a manner that one can only characterize has simultaneously nauseating and hilarious.

Twitter and Facebook posts surged. Surely this series of sparring will dump Trump out of the polls, right? Nope.

Look, I’m not a Trump fan, I don’t want a celebrity president. I don’t believe he is a conservative by any stretch of the imagination.  I personally believe Trump is in this race to be a stalking horse, but for which candidate and which side I don’t really know yet.

But Trump’s blunt messages are resonating with a lot of people.

The people are tired of Washington liars, of divisive narratives, a lawless administration and of the complicit media.  In particular, conservative voters are tired of the establishment GOP ramming crappy, squishy candidates down our throats.

The establishment clearly wants Jeb Bush. It might happen with Kasich in the race. Anyone who hasn’t figured it out yet, Kasich is very likely Jeb’s stalking horse for this election cycle.

Should a Jeb Bush candidacy happen, I know a lot of Common Core moms who will be staying home on election day.
