I started to laugh, really hard - then realized that this isn't really a joke. smile

I don't forward much humor to my friends, but this one definitely got sent.

on a more serious note (I think)...rumor mill claims that Donald Trump will be tossing his hat in the ring for the Republican Nomination for President...can you see him sitting in front of Congress, pointing out an unruly Congressman and saying "You're Fired!"?

I might vote for him out of sheer curiosity...

The way things are shaping up, I may end up casting a write in vote for Colin Powell. Again. (Third time's a charm?)

Trump tossed his hairpiece in the ring today! This adds a real flare and nonsense to our elections that we can all enjoy.

Personally, I like Bernie Sanders, but Colin Powell is right up there too. I'd write him in with you Glenn grin

By comparison, Sarah Palin looks like an intellectual giant. Never thought I'd hear myself say those words. frown

We're both gonna take heat for these comments, but I'll stand by them just the same laugh
