Revere non-stick cookware

So, how in the world is a candidate who has said and done all the things Trump has running so damn close in the polls now?  Seriously?  Literally one month ago prominent members of his own party were calling for him to drop out of the race and he looked like he’d be lucky to hit 40%.  Damn, memories are short.  Some time ago, I wrote that Trump does not actually defy political gravity, but, I think in this hyper-polarized world we live in, we are dealing with the moon’s gravity, and not the earth’s (sorry, cannot resist a strained metaphor).

Many have argued that Trump is teflon.  Well, he may not be Swiss Diamond, but damn it, he’s at least Revere non-stick.  During Jeopardy literally all we get are political ads (oh, how I miss the days of Viagra and Lipitor) and we’re seeing some damn good ones from Clinton.  Like this one:

These are the man’s own words.  Talk about hoisted by your own petard!  And yet, here we are just days before the election and in serious doubt as to whether this buffoonish, ignorant, cretin might actually become president.  I swear, if there’s anything that’s ever made me doubt in America, this may be it.

Also, as close as Trump is, despite everything, I’m all the more convinced that any other viable Republican besides Cruz (i.e., Rubio, Jeb, Scott Walker, Mike Pence) would be running away with this thing.

    I would replace “cretin” with “amoral narcissist” but otherwise – right on.
