“Ever dance with the Devil in the pale moon light?”
So, why is it that I harken back to Jack Nicholson as the Joker in the first Batman movie, when I read about the Blue Dog Democrats meeting with Donald Trump?
Granted, the Democratic Leadership Council is coughing up blood and being taken over by extremists. But, seriously guys, a “Trump Card?” Yes. I know the Blue Dogs are being shunned by Pelosi. Heath Shuler has made no secret of it.
UPDATE: Michael Barone on “Vanishing Democratic Moderates.”
UPDATE: Ed Morrissey has a good write-up on The Donald, possibly, laying some groundwork for a 2012 presidential bid? And, there I was giving the Blue Dogs a hard time over meeting with him. In response to Ed’s question, “Are you ready for…….President The Donald?,” my answer would have to be an affirmative “NO.” I’d have to see a whole lot to change my mind, not that it couldn’t be changed but it’s going to take a lot more than I’ve ever seen before to support him. Just sayin’.
UPDATE: Maybe, it’s just a “publicity stunt, a Trump specialty?”
UPDATE: I guess we’re waiting until June to hear officially from The Donald, what’s going to happen.
UPDATE: Beware the flying “hair, er, I mean hat.” I really enjoy reading Doug Powers’ posts!
UPDATE: Making GOProud?
UPDATE: “Grow the base?” I’m just not seeing it.
UPDATE: Ouch?! “Why is Trump even at CPAC, you ask? Because GOProud invited him, ostensibly to “help support the conference.” How it helps the conference to have a publicity whore show up to tout his vanity candidacy, I’m not sure.”
