|"You'll have to be more specific, I say many, many things that are insane.|
I'm an uh... an attention whore. Love the attention, so I say a lot of ridiculous shit.."
-Donald Trump (actual quote)*
|The quickest way to lose an argument is to invoke |
Hitler, so I'll just compare Trump to Chaplain's
character, Adenoid Hykel in The Great Dictator.
|You know, because there's never been|
Christian extremists in this country.

Look, I've never been a fan of the GOP personally, but it just seems like if we're only going to have a two-party system there should actually be two parties. Not one regular party and then one pack of lunatic ideologues gouging each other's eyes out over which one would go to the craziest lengths to persecute Muslims.
Oh and hey, check it out:
CNN's story about Trump's Muslim database idea was preceded by an ad for the TV series based on Phillip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle. It's set in an alternate universe where the U.S. loses World War II and is run by fascists. Serendipitous ad choice or is CNN just being snarky? Or perhaps this is a grim portent of things to come. Can't wait to find out!
