Pulling My Head Out Of My Ass While Trump Pushes His Head Farther Up His

OK, I think I found the problem with why I've been spinning my wheels with this blog lately. I think I've actually viewing it as some kind of obligation. I've been trying to think of posts that would make as many people as possible want to read them, and I've started worrying over the fact that if I don't make regular posts then I'll lose all of my followers. That's right. All 10 of my followers. Honestly, have I become so deluded that I think I'm one clever post away from getting an avalanche of readers who cannot wait to hear the inane ramblings of a twenty-something asshole from Philadelphia?

So I've come to the realization that I just need to go back to the original mindset of this blog....using it as an outlet to vent things that piss me off and share the things that make me happy. And, yes, I realize that I've pretty much been doing that anyway. But in my head I had this grand scheme of making weekly segments that would earn me the admiration of the entire blog community. Because I'm a schmuck like that.

But as of today I'm going to relax a bit with the dumbass gimmick crap. I just want anyone who gives a shit to enjoy this Colbert Report clip:

I don't know about you, but I picture both the writing staff for The Daily Show and The Colbert Report getting together before the start of each day, holding hands, and praying to God, Jesus, and Allah that Donald Trump stays in presidential contention for as long as possible. When Trump first started in with his raving lunacy, it really pissed me off. I couldn't believe anyone would give this guy a platform to say anything other than "You're fired." But then I realized that the only reason he's being given this platform is because no one wants to miss the opportunity to watch the train wreck over and over and over again.

It's not like we really have to worry about Trump winning the election. If that happens, I've already died and gone to hell anyway so I'll have bigger problems at that point. So now I get that the thing to do is sit back and enjoy the parade of asinine claims made by the "golden helmeted noise warrior." And I'm not gonna lie, I'd totally buy a bumper sticker that read "You're not gonna raise that fuckin' price, you understand me?"
