2. I think he may even edge out Louie Gohmert as the dumbest person elected to federal office.

6. There are some who seem to have done alright.

Wall Street, to be certain, has received the largest "bonus" from Donnie Darko so far. He gave them the keys to the Treasury, so they can back up the eighteen wheelers to make their "withdrawals" again. How much "inside information" do you think THAT'S going to be worth to the Horny Honeydew?

8. what fool would trust a republican Casino Sharpie* with a track record for

breaking contracts, failure to pay, and bold face lying. Those "values" may be good enough for republicans, but they are not good enough for Americans or for honest businesspeople.

Um yeah.... You can't do any of the "pay to play" stuff that you guys do all the time and think you can get away with it. You may have bought Congress but the top of the ticket is a whole other world now that there is a laser focus going on there.
