Trump as the national Christine O'Donnell

Remember, Delaware conservatives, when in 2008 2010 many of you actually thought that Christine O'Donnell could beat out Chris Coons in the general US Senate election -- even though every poll showed her getting beat, most by double digits?

And remember how every poll showed that O'Donnell's primary opponent, Mike Castle, beat Chris Coons? Remember??

You voted for O'Donnell anyway.

Now look -- I get digging Donald Trump. I really do. He gives it right back to people, most especially the mainstream media, and that is incredibly appealing.

But he won't win the general election. The only chance he would have is if Bernie Sanders is the Democratic nominee, and he won't be. Even Hillary "What, Wipe It Clean With A Cloth?" Clinton still beats Trump head-to-head despite her criminal behavior. If things get too tough for Hill, the Dems will pull the plug, and someone like Joe Biden will jump in.

I remember O'Donnell beating Castle very well. I knew it would be a disaster. Thus, I worry about the Trump craze. I wanna grab people by the shoulders like Cahill (Oliver Platt) did to Grant (Kurt Russell) in Executive Decision and yell "LISTEN TO ME! LISTEN TO ME!!"

Maybe another time I'll address some of his head scratchers, like repealing the 14th Amendment and making Mexico pay for building a border wall.

That wasn't 2008; that was 2010 and after Obamacare had already been rammed down the country's throat. Otherwise, the comparison is pretty spot on.

I stand corrected. Thanks!

Well that bit of idiocy was a month ago and now Trump has overtaken all opponents.

Care to revise anything?

Newsflash: The election is a year and two months away.

The key difference here is that Coons did not self-destruct like Hillary has (currently is doing). I still think Trump will do the same, 'tho.

As I said, I GET the Trump craze. I really do. He's refreshing. But don't be fooled into thinking he's a genuine conservative. You'll be disappointed.
