TRUMP! has on a couple of occasions shown slivers of decency, which he probably didn't intend to do because he knows that type of thing will confuse (perhaps alienate) his supporters, however he still accidentally did.

Sort of like when Trump said that planned parenthood does other good things for women? I agree. I was like, woah, I think he accidentally just used logic.

But others in Republican aren't capable of doing so, apparently

This is what I have been thinking all along. I don't understand how this turn of events can be shocking, after the whole Palin debacle. He's appealing to a similar segment of the population.

This whole Trump phenomenon, to me, is just an extension to his overblown personality that he's been selling forever. why the hell people think it's new "political event" or "new wave of politics"? people wanting someone with larger-than-life personality isn't all that new.

Not moderates, just the sizable portion of conservatives that other conservatives like to pretend doesn't exist when it's convenient for them.

Yeah that, as well as when he said he wouldn't let people die in the streets. Also his response to Ted Cruz's supposed slam about "New York Values" was rather good. Maybe he was caught off guard or perhaps there is a speck of humanity underneath the bombast and the orange spray tan. Who knows...right?

That's my logic. I voted for Jill Stein in '12, and I'd do it again if I weren't terrified of the ramifications for doing so this time.

I'd think about it, to be honest. He impressed me in Ohio, and as much as I'm still backing Hillary, I'm far colder to her than I was in 08.

Five minutes in, and Trump has reassured us that his penis size is just fine.

Cool.

And the audience cheered the Donald's large peen. I would like to say that this is rock bottom, but we all know it isn't.

Trump is scarier than Cruz for one reason; Cruz can't win.

Trump might.

That's why he's scarier.
