With O'Malley making some squeaks recently I was leaning towards him, but Castro just makes too much sense especially (being brutally realistic here) if the GOP wises up and goes with Rubio somehow.

Castro 25%
O'Malley 15%
Field 60%

Obama goes on tv last night and says they'll destroy ISIS and now Cruz says he will. Clearly he's just Obama all over again.

Obama said in his speech that Muslims are our sports heroes. What sport is he talking about, and who? Is Obama profiling?

Banedon wasn't asking; he was pointing out Trump being a willful idiot yet again.

And I don't think Trump is saying he doesn't know of any pro athletes who are Muslims; I think he's clumsily trying to play some kind of dumbass "reverse racism" card.

Someone explain Trump's signature to me:

Even if he's spelling out "Donald John Trump," that looks like he's having a seizure in the middle of an earthquake and it just trailed on for way too long. Even his signature has to be UUUUUUUUUUGER than his actual name?

He's always consistent apparently with that signature, although sometimes it's a bit more stretched out. I don't think he's putting his middle name in there. Middle initial at best.

Oh, I wouldn't put it past him to not know any pro athletes are Muslims.

My guess is that like many Americans, Muslim=Arab=Iraqi=Syrian=Iranian etcetera
“There are 2,000 verses of Scripture that call upon us to respond to the needs of the poor. And yet, I find that when Christians talked about values in this last election that was not on the agenda, that was not a concern. ”-Tony Campolo

My signature looks like garbage, but that's hilariously ridiculous. It just looks like his first and last name mostly consist of going "mmmmmmmmmm!"

I will admit I was honestly surprised at how decent his handwriting is.

Nah; the guy's palled around with Ali a ton. He's not THAT dumb; I think the last part is key. He's basically trying to goad people into having stupid argument about what racism REALLY is/being un-PC/reverse racism/etc. without actually diving into it himself. It's like a muddled stab at "Obama's talking about black Muslims...he mentions athletes like it's some kind of pinnacle of achievment...therefore he's saying black people can only hope be athletes."

Trump, damn. He went from being an entertaining sideshow to more than a little scary.

And he continues to ride high in the polls.

Repeat again and again -- we get the government we deserve.

He's not even going to get the nomination. I'll bet a million fakajillion Trump Bucks.

Wow banning all Muslims from entering the US? I'm starting to think Trump didn't want to be president he just wanted his name in the news for several months.
