  •  Well, he'll get some disaffected lefties but (20+ / 0-)

    unless he switches to being an independent there is no way the Republicans are going to allow him to drift even slightly to the left. None of the Republican candidates for 2016 will have that option available.

    Plus, you're making the assumption Aqua Buddha doesn't do something completely batshit insane between now and 2016. Running for the Senate in Kentucky allowed him a certain level of forgiveness for his crass behavior. On the national stage having your campaign manager stomp someone on the head is not going to be ignored. Hell, neither will the Aqua Buddha incident.

    He can put some lipstick on the pig like his father did but the racism and misogyny will come back to haunt him. Well, anywhere but the Republican party. And their purity trolls (or as they call 'the base') will prevent him from moving one inch to the center.

    You can't assassinate the character of any of modern conservative. You'd have to find where it was buried, dig it up, resurrect it, then kill it. And killing a zombie isn't really assassination, is it?
