Big Red Car here. Watched the political shows this morning and it seems like the media is a little clueless about something that is obvious to a 1966 Impala SuperSport convertible.
Want me to tell you what that is?
Jeb Bush represents the hopes of the GOPe (Republican establishment). The guys who think they’ve been running the Republican party for generations. Guys used to getting their own way. All perfectly true.
Donald Trump represents all the pissed off people who think the Republican establishment has never done anything for them. Imagine all these peasants identifying with a billionaire who is not himself a member of the GOPe. Also, all perfectly true.
That’s all there is. The Republicans won a big victory in 2014 and because it was a mid-term the GOPe was not calling the shots. Individual Senate and House races were impacted by irritated, vexed, irked non-GOPe folk.
This is why guys like Jeb Bush at 3% in the polls still think they have a shot at the nomination because they are used to eventually getting their way.
Sayeth The Donald, “Not so fast, fellas. Not so damn fast.”
Let’s be clear — the December front runner doesn’t mean anything but this may not be the typical December front runner. We shall see.
The GOPe doesn’t have a clue, is angry, still thinks Jeb has a chance (bridge in Brooklyn for y’all?), and is likely to take the Republican party off a cliff in their anger.
But, hey, what the Hell do I really know anyway? I’m just a Big Red Car. GOPe is an archaic cabal of fat, white, rich, crybabies and The Donald is a pretty media savvy guy. This is going to be very interesting.
