DONALD TRUMP for president is believable in this hyped-up media driven political circus. Hard to imagine how the billionaire game show host can be taken seriously—but then Sarah Palin who began life watching Russia from her home in Alaska is a household personality. Trump this week in Las Vegas spoke of facing a real dilemma if he had to give up his television career to run for president: It’s a great show. I’m gonna give a lot of stuff up. But you know what, it’s peanuts compared with the importance of this country. Here, we witness an incisive intellect in the tradition of politicians and orators like Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt offered potent words in his first inaugural, We do not distrust the future of essential democracy. The people of the United States have not failed. In their need they have registered a mandate that they want direct, vigorous action. They have asked for discipline and direction under leadership. They have made me the present instrument of their wishes. In the spirit of the gift I take it. Contemporary messages have certainly changed—we are left with linguistic vestiges such as, blood-sucking, mother f . . . g, birthers in a teapot party (order of words are rhetorical)
