Donald Trump, attention whore: no debate, but maybe independent bid

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Well, so much for that "debate" Trump was supposed to "moderate." The unbridled egomaniac known as the The Donald has pulled out of the Newsmax affair -- which was only going to be Gingrich vs. Santorum anyway, as everyone else turned down the offer to play bit parts in Trump's purely self-serving political reality show -- and is now (surprise, surprise) talking about running as an independent.

Don't be fooled. He won't run. He was never serious about running as a Republican, and he's certainly not serious now. (He'd corner the electoral market on Birtherism, but that would be about it.) He's just trying to hog the spotlight to push the Trump brand, which was the whole point of his early flirtation with challenging for the Republican nomination.

You think Sarah Palin's bad? There appears to be no more shameless attention whore than Donald Trump. And he comes with a big mouth and bullying personality as well.

But wouldn't it be great if he were to run? Seriously.
