This is a repost of my weekly Da Tech Guy Column: 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:
