The Republicans have created their own Frankenstein.
Now they’re trying to keep him tied down. But he keeps busting his bonds and roaming the countryside, spreading fear, havoc and consternation.
Even if they attempt to kill him by burning the house down, he’ll probably rise up again.

If the current Republican presidential candidates are robbed by a brokered convention, it will foretell the end of the Grand Old Party.
It’s almost dead now, hanging on by its grizzly, old, close-cropped, go-along-to get-along fingernails.

There seems to be no shortage of pundits telling why people are wrongly supporting Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination.
The common thread is that there must be something wrong with anybody who would support Trump.
The last explanation I read said Trump supporters were afraid and sought authoritarian leaders.
I’d like to posit another theory. These people are mad as hell and unwilling to take it any more. They’re tired of being called racist if they criticize anything President Obama does.
They’re tired of political correctness run amok. They’re tired of being called homophobic because they support traditional marriage or have a problem with granting men and boys access to women’s bathrooms.
They’re tired of catering to the millions of “guests” in our country without permission — people who refuse to learn English, send more than $50 billion south in remittances, steal identities and even file and get tax refunds for children who aren’t even in the U.S.
They’re tired of being told we should not display the American flag as it might offend some of our “guests.”
Trump simply voices their anger and frustration.

I’m worried about Trump. EMTs should always be close at hand.
One day, he’ll seriously injure himself as he throws a shoulder out of joint describing how wonderful and brilliant he is and begins patting himself on the back!
