Trump Embarrasses Himself, Maricopa County Tries to Dupe Hispanic Voters

President Obama laughs off Trump's latest gaff on Leno
No amount of blogging away my frustrations could possibly sum up mainstream America's collective response to perpetually-coiffed attention whore Donald Trump's anti-climatic "challenge" to President Obama any better than Barbara Walter's choice words on ABC's "The View".

In response to Trump's pathetic video effort to raise the long-dead ghosts of the vanquished  Birther movement by offering up $5 million to submit his passport applications and college records, Walters opined:  

“Donald, you’re making a fool of yourself,” she continued. “You are not hurting Obama — you’re hurting Donald, and that hurts me, because you’re a decent man. Stop it. Get off it, Donald.”

Amen sister. "The Donald" has clearly relegated himself to the media scrapheap of totally irrelevant personalities intoxicated by their own brilliance. Someone please put some cheese on that clown and set the table, cause he's done.

By the way, if Trump wants to drop $5 million on something, maybe he should try giving back the tuition money to the hundreds of enraged students duped into paying for a degree from his sham Trump University.

Even as poor Mitt Romney struggles to distance himself from his own views and pass himself off as a moderate, members of his own party continue to horrify American women with their archaic views on abortion and rape. Indiana Senate nominee Richard Mourdouk sailed right into Todd Aikin territory with another jaw-dropping pro-life soundbite that further increases the President's already significant lead over women voters nationwide.  

GOP efforts to criminalize voters who aren't very likely to support them at the polls on November 6th just keep getting more despicable and bizarre. In good 'ole Maricopa County, Arizona, home to notorious bigot Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the county's own elections department has been caught putting out two Spanish-language documents with the wrong election date on them.

Even though they're direct English-to-Spanish translations of English elections documents; there's just one error. The date. The Spanish-language version incorrectly lists the date of the Presidential elections as November 8th; the date of the election is actually November 6th. Go figure!

Do NOT adjust your television folks, this is the year 2012 and we are in fact in the United States of America.
