iSteve commenter Germ Theory of Disease theorizes:
Here is the key to a potential Bloomberg victory (are you listening, Trump interns?)
The Iron Law of American presidential politics is this: (listen VERY carefully, Trumpsters)…..
Bugs Bunny ALWAYS defeats Elmer Fudd.
Donald Trump defeated the numerically and media-massaged superiority of Hillary Clinton, because he was able to position himself as the wily, wascally wabbit, the underdog Americans are programmed to cheer for, against the ridiculously stilted Elmer Fudd stiff presented by the vile shrike Hillary, the Sea-Hag incarnate.
Trump will not enjoy the Bugs Bunny advantage this time around, because all his blowhard blustering, and shouting and tweeting and fuming, makes him into the stiff this time around.
Compared with this nonstop walking baby-tantrum, all Bloomberg has to do is to stand there very still, chomp his carrot, sound calm and reasonable, and ask, “What’s up, doc?”
Trump will destroy himself on impact, unless he takes notice.
Watch and learn.
Okay, but most of America hasn’t actually seen Bloomberg outside his expensive TV commercials. How will he do in his first Democratic debate on Wednesday evening?
I’m probably going to be out and about most of Wednesday, so feel free to comment.
