    “Never touch anything that looks like Donald Trump’s hair.”

    Donald Trump Elbows His Way into the Republican Clown Car
    And Sidney Blumenthal does the whole Benghazi thing.

    Excerpt:
    This is one of those days that cries out for Mark Twain. Not the jovial old squire of Hartford, but the dark, brooding skeptic who saw human nature as an impenetrable jungle full of disease and invisible predators, the guy who asked, “Let me make the superstitions of a nation and I care not who makes its laws or its songs either.” Because this is the day in which the denizens of the epistemically closed hallucinatory menagerie of the political right become reality. The conjuring words finally have worked. The black spirits of the conservative imagination walk the landscape, making news…

    He is the inevitable result of 40 years of political conjuring, mainly by Republicans, but abetted by far too many Democrats as well. He is the inevitable product of anyone who ever argued that our political institutions should be run “like a business.” (Like whose businesses? Like Trump’s? Like Carly Fiorina’s Hewlett Packard?) He is the inevitable product of anyone who ever argued why the government can’t balance its books “the way any American family would.” He is the inevitable result of the deregulated economy that was deregulated out of a well-cultivated wonder and awe directed at the various masters of the universe. Sooner or later, all of this misbegotten magical thinking was going to burp up a clown like Donald Trump. Sooner or later, the conversion of the institutions of the national legislature into vehicles for polite ratfcking was going to burp up a Trey Gowdy, who will interrogate not the actual Sid Blumenthal, but the one that exists in thousands of fundraising letters and chain e-mails. The politics of this country have dedicated themselves to the pursuit of hallucinations today. Wish I could say I was surprised.

    BUSTED: Donald Trump caught hiring extras for campaign launch at $50 a head
    http://www.rawstory.com/2015/06/busted-donald-trump-caught-hiring-extras-for-campaign-launch-at-50-a-head/

    Excerpt:
    A consulting firm that has worked with real estate mogul Donald Trump allegedly enlisted a New York City casting firm to make sure it appeared Trump had supporters on hand when he announced his entry into the presidential campaign.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter, the company, Extra Mile Casting, contacted background actors via email on June 12 seeking people to appear at Trump’s campaign launch and cheer for him, offering a rate of $50 in cash for less than three hours of work.

    “The entire group is a pro-small business group that is dedicated to encouraging Donald Trump and his latest ventures. This event will be televised,” the casting notice read. “We are looking to cast people for the event to wear t-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement. We understand this is not a traditional ‘background job,’ but we believe acting comes in all forms and this is inclusive of that school of thought.”
