Seriously....what does that have to do with anything? It doesn't. The fact is none of the candidates, none of the media, took Trump seriously until it was too late. Almost everyone expected Trump to flame out. He didn't, and he didn't because he was exactly the kind of candidate the Republican base had been looking for after decades of Republican entertainers (e.g. Fox News and Republican talk radio) telling them what they were looking for. They were waiting for Trump to self destruct, and Canadian Ted in particular. Canadian avoided attacking Trump until the very end and by that time, it was too late. Do you have evidence he isn't smarter than Palin? No you don't. Trump went to better schools - schools which would never admit Palin. Trump is in fact smarter than Palin. But as I previously mentioned, he mimics her style because that is what the Republican base wants of their candidate. Trump will do what he has done, and as evidenced by Hillary's speech yesterday that is more than enough. As I previously wrote, what appeals to the Republican base doesn't appeal to most Americans. That's the same problem Romney had. That's the same problem McCain had. Except he did. You cannot get the Republican nomination without the support of base Republicans. It's a simple matter of math. Yes, he can be prevented from wining the presidency and probably will be. The majority of Americans aren't that crazy. And Trump seems intent upon pissing off key voter segments (e.g. Hispanics) in order to appease the Republican base. And as long as Trump continues to do the crazy talk which is so loved by his base, it will be very difficult, if not impossible, for Trump to win. Getting the nomination was the easy part for Trump, now comes the hard stuff.
