Our friend Shane of the Government tipped us off to a bit of non-news concerning an intermural rivalry between blowhard extraordinaire Newt Gingrich and Tea Party kahuna Dick “Tip o’ the Shaft” Armey. Their little contretemps is about the Republican budget, or rather which version of ineffective/irresponsible the party should endorse. Gingrich denounced the House plan — aka Ryan’s Folly — as “right-wing social engineering.” Armey responded by calling Newt “confused and conflicted.” Yeah, Dick, but we’re talking about policy, not marital history.
As fascinating as the politics are, I think we’re missing the bigger picture. Namely, how is The Donald — newly liberated from the shackles of his non-candidacy — gonna capitalize on this beef for the greater good profit?
Have no fear, Trumpeteers, we’ve got just the fix.
In these dark times, we need all the entertainment and distraction we can get, and Trump has proven to be an ace purveyor of at least one. That’s why we’re offering The Donald an idea that can leverage both his political influence and his propensity for over-the-top televised events. And we give this gem FREE OF CHARGE in deference to his profound financial conservatism.
