I picked up that phrase from Jonathan Capehart this afternoon, who must assume his audience would identify the source (a tip of the hat is due to Gus Van Sant’s 1991 film). Capehart was commenting on the GOP hajjis making the pilgrimage to the black Kaaba of Fifth Avenue. The Donald has apparently become a one man primary unto himself, potentially turning the candidate field into a parody of his reality show, next up Mitt Romney.
Perry apparently rated a bit higher than La Palin (dinner at Jean Georges….there goes your Tea Party redneck cred Rick) even if The Donald forgot his name or maybe Trump just wanted to avoid a repeat of the pizza/fork debacle. Then again, he might be saving the pizza for Herman Cain.
