Flicking Back The Fringe

When your gene pool is as large as USA, there's a lot more of The Fringe Element to select for politics.
Occasionally one of them actually gains public office: Reagan, Schwarzenegger, Martin Sheen...oh no, that was TV!
"It's MY fringe...I'll
flick it any way I want!"
But the line between politics, tv and reality really blurred when Donald Trump threw his hat into the political ring. God Bless America that he's now left the building, without ever once considering he'd lose: "If I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election...however, business is my greatest passion and I am not ready to leave the private sector."
Cynics constantly said this was all about promoting the property billionaire's tv show Celebrity Apprentice. Well, he certainly had the familiarity factor...but what about that hair? Could Americans really vote in someone of the lunatic fringe like that? Answer - yes. Look at Bush. BOTH of 'em!
Ah well, Trump made 'good copy' for five minutes...and hey, there's still Sarah Palin, the gal y'all love to parady...

Hockey mum and ex-Alaskan governor is keeping quiet about a 2012 pitch. Is she regrouping for another "campaign to nowhere"? Or staying out of the race - probably a good thing.
She'll be back on tv soon anyway, portrayed by Julianne Moore in an upcoming film. Game Change is a behind-the-scenes look at the US 2008 general election: “I’ll just grit my teeth and bear whatever comes with that movie.” Palin also joked she's all for job creation, so is glad to have provided the actress with work.
PS: 30 June 2011 - Palin has announced she will run in 2012. Stand by for more laughs!
PS: 06 Oct.2011 - ...and now she says she WON'T!

Seems to be a trend this 'hair thing'
Peter Dunn's Dead Possum hair-do compliments the dead albino version on Trumps head might have to rearrange the tail more to the front a little though.

Back under my rock now
