Just like that, the Trump moment is about to end. You see, he's committed the unpardonable sin:

...in his bestselling book, Art of the Deal, published at the conclusion of the Reagan presidency, Trump cited Reagan as an example of someone who could "con people" but couldn't "deliver the goods." Trump said Reagan was "so smooth" that he "won over the American people." But at the conclusion of his presidency, "people are beginning to question whether there is anything beneath that smile," Trump writes.

That's it, Donald -- thanks for playing. You can be an ex-Democrat, an ex-supporter of a wealth tax, an ex-Obama fan, an ex-pro-choicer ... but you cannot insult the most perfect human being who ever lived and expect to win votes in the Republican Party. This alone will do more to deflate the Trump bubble than anything terrified establishment 'pubs have unearthed so far.

And it was Think Progress that dug this up. Dammit, guys, you should've let him make the party elders squirm for a few more weeks.


Meanwhile, a guy who was once touted as a possible 2012 contender is missing an opportunity again:

Gov. Bobby Jindal would sign a bill requiring presidential candidates to provide a copy of their birth certificate to qualify for the Louisiana ballot if it reaches his desk, a spokesman said Monday.

"It's not part of our package, but if the Legislature passes it we'll sign it," press secretary Kyle Plotkin said....

That alone would be enough to propel Jindal into the top tier, if he wanted to join the race -- except for this:

Plotkin said Jindal believes Obama is a citizen.


Someone's going to pick up the Trump mantle -- when 74% of Iowa Republicans either think Obama is foreign-born or aren't sure, they're crazy not to.
