"Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer, do... Am I crazy? Guess what I just might do!"

Donald Trump says that he won't rule out the use of nuclear weapons against ISIS because we need to be unpredictable.

Just let that sink in for a moment. He wants us to be unpredictable. The Donald wants the world to think that the President of the United States might do something that only a madman would even consider.

Let's be clear about this. No sane person would ever even consider using nukes against ISIS- thereby killing exponentially more innocent people than terrorists, contaminating the whole region, and risking all sorts of other ramifications from nuclear powers and just plain friendly countries whose people would be poisoned by the fallout. Is The Donald seriously suggesting that he wants to leave the impression in the minds of the world that he's crazier than a boiled owl? Because he's succeeding! The world already sees him as at best a clown and at worst a bigoted madman.

The guy is so transparently an ignoramus and a buffoon that the inability of so many who have voted in the Republican primaries to see it is not only puzzling but bizarre. Ok, people are angry. But do they really think that putting a narcissistic ignoramus in the White House who wants the world to think that he's bonkers is the solution?

This isn't Iowa or New Hampshire anymore. Trump is closing in on the Republican nomination. In 1964, Barry Goldwater suggested that maybe we should consider using nukes in Vietnam. The Democrats ran the following ad:

It only ran once. That's all it needed to run.

Lyndon Johnson carried 44 states and the District of Columbia.

Donald Trump is already destined for a landslide defeat, so in one sense it hardly matters. But dudes......are you crazy, too?
