We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
in terms of PR, Trump should be paying those protesters.
I, and the two dogs and three cats I registered, will be voting for the trumpster. (I don't own the cats, I'm not even sure if there are two or three of them).

I become worried, and I hate to even keep it in the conversation, about the Scott Adams scenario that Insty links to: that violence and assassination are enough of a great good to the media that they will unconsciously but inexorably encourage them. No one will say "Let's push the edges and maybe someone will shoot Trump," but that they will reward the violent with attention, increasing its likelihood.
More benignly, he could be impeached for any number of overreaches and stupidities that no one can talk him out of. And Hillary could be impeached as well over security and/or corruption issues.
VP nominees are really going to matter this time around. Maybe that was the long game Chris Christie was trying to play.

"....he could be impeached for any number of overreaches and stupidities..."
Speculate much, AVI?
I know: Trump could vastly extend the power of the EPA through executive order! Oh wait.....BHO has already done that. How about refusing to execute the laws on border control? Or maybe running a fake operation smuggling guns from the US to Mexico?
Drat! Barack beat him to it again!
Eureka, I have it! Trump can cut a real shady deal with Iran, allowing them to develop nuclear weapons without even a hint of inspection and then release all those sequestered billions back to the Iranian regime! That should get him impeached right?.......uh oh.........
This wouldn't be happening if Jeb or Kasich were the leading candidate. The left fears Trump. If Cruz were the choice of the Republican voters the left would be out in force against him. The left is terrified of Trump. He doesn't know the first rule about politics today which is you don't tell the truth about the other politicians. There are things you can say but do not speak truth. Especially about Democrats/communists.
Fascinating! The Davos caste, K Street, and their SERVANTS (pols, media, pundits, lobbyists, consultants, managerial class) haven't encountered this level of defiance and resistance by the working stiff, voters for decades. And, apparently, the political class is fresh out of ideas and new cons.
One of the centerpiece agitators for stopping the traffic has been outed as a paid agitator for George Soros and works for the so-called "New Orleans Workers' Center for Racial Justice." She is Jacinta Gonzalez Goodman. Shipped in, like the other thousands have been.
