Apparently now there are people of the chattering (useless) class who are comparing Donald Trump and Sarah Palin. I really don't see how the two can be compared unless it is only that both are being lambasted by the "liberal" media. Trump is now the main target for numerous reasons not the least of which is his unfortunate hair style. Now both are rather ridiculous individuals and neither are probably presidential material but one is a self made and very accomplished person and the other is just a "poster child" for a segment of the population.
If we just look at Palin it is easy to see that she pretty much has just taken advantage of the love affair that many on the right seem to have with unqualified and slightly loony persons. Can't blame her there. I am sure she has enriched herself beyond her wildest dreams by being sort of a modern day "pin up girl" for some on the right. Good job if one can get it I suppose. Perhaps a better job than being the elected governor of the state of Alaska. She of course resigned from that post for no real reason that I can see (other than finding it tiresome) and that really should say it all about her character. Now I believe her to be a pretty smart person (I used to think her dumb) or at the very least quite adept at manipulation, but then again I have known "titty dancers" who were mentally on the ball and quite manipulative (sociopaths) also. I must admit I do find her rather interesting but do not believe her to be a serious candidate for any public office, much less the most powerful position on earth.
Now Trump is a different animal altogether. He is undoubtedly a successful person and knows what it takes to make it "big" in this nation. Of course there are those that begrudge him due to his business savvy but I think the majority of us just kind of sit back and marvel. Yes it is true that he can be pretty ridiculous. His love affair with himself is apparent and it is pretty easy to make fun of his personality and, above all, his hair. One thing though. He is being targeted heavily by those on the left and that of course means one thing and one thing only. They are running scared, just as they were (and still are) afraid of Palin. When the left starts attacking hard one can smell the stench of terror on them. They of course are pointing out the fact that he is a narcissist and are really hitting hard on Trump's questioning the origins of Obama's birth. The leftist pretty much thought that had been put to bed by now. Guess they were wrong. It is also being pointed out by the left that Trump has gone bankrupt in the past. Well of course stupid. Bankruptcy is a business tactic of those who play in the "Bigs." A bit underhanded perhaps but pretty much an accepted and expected business tactic.
I find it unlikely that Trump is really serious about running for the office of president but he does bring some important items for discussion to the table. No I am not talking about Obama's birthplace, although that is still an issue.
If I had to chose between Palin and Donald I would go with Trump.
