Does anyone else think Donald Trump might be doing performance art? Well, clearly he is, but I mean good-ol' fashioned trolling? The guy has supported health care and trashed Reagan before -- maybe he's deliberately trying to make the right-wing positions look as ridiculous as possible. One way or the other, keep up the show and pass the popcorn.

I think your last sentence hits it on the head. He's too good of a business man to not take advantage of an advantage, which in this case is free publicity.

He's also too experienced of a businessman to prematurely close off his future options. If he gets catapulted to national politics, I think he'd think that's okay. If he doesn't achieve that rarefied height, he's still managed to take over a larger portion of the public dialog in the meantime. Where's the downside?

I...can't say. He likes to project his blowhard image while giving to charities but at the same time he is plainly kind of a blowhard.

Also -- why are you using LJ?
