Trump beats New York Times, 2-1

Donald Trump is the anti-Oprah.  If Oprah and the headline-snatchers of Hollywood can drive the political headlines, well, so can celebrity rich guy Donald Trump.  In fact, Trump represents the smallest ethnic group in American history, the orange people.  How he managed to get so orange I don't know, but I feel sure we should all feel compassion for his expensive skin condition.

Politics doesn't give us a lot of chances for hearty laughs, but we have Trump to thank for getting the New York Times to go into silly contortions in front of its kowtowing public.  The manipulators have been manipulated, the biters bit.  Specifically, Ms. Gail Collins, who runs the NYT Op-Ed page and actively colluded in the Valerie Plame "Girl Spy" fraud against the Bush White House a few years ago.  She is a nasty bit of business, Ms. Collins, our Grand Inquisitor in charge of liberal witchhunts.  Collins is the kind of "journalist" Justice Clarence Thomas had in mind when he talked about being assaulted by a "high-tech lynch mob" during his Supreme Court nomination hearings.  Just to keep its claws sharp, the left has just renewed its assault on Justice Thomas, apparently because his wife was exercising her political freedoms, the ones that are explicitly protected by the United States Constitution.  For the left, there are no Constitutional protections for the brave Clarence Thomases of this world.

Enter Donald Trump with a perfectly accurate talking point, namely that Barack H. Obama has never bothered to provide his original long-form birth certificate to the world.  Neither the media nor the Republicans have ever dared to ask for those original documents.  Nobody knows why, though guesses abound.  Maybe the birth certificate shows something embarrassing about who his parents were, or who they claimed to be.  Maybe he just doesn't meet the Constitutional requirements of his office.  Maybe it just shows him to be a lifelong liar about his birth name or date, which should come as no surprise to any sane person in the country.  Nobody will ever find out as long as Obama is in office, because he can block its release, and the courts will never reverse the election results for fear of a bloody uprising on the left.  Stare decisis is a very practical doctrine.

Whatever the reason may be, the Obama White House has sent off squads of high-priced lawyers to keep that constitutionally required document from the public, along with his college records, and what seems to be a surprising Social Security number.  None of that proves anything for sure, except that Obama has lived his life on the edge, which again, could only come as a surprise to airhead liberals who offer themselves as free sucker bait to all the Bernie Madoffs of the world.  They are the ones wearing the "Sucker Me!" t-shirts, and Democrats can smell them a mile away.

Donald Trump may be a first-class bull slinger himself, and he is certainly a successful headline chaser.  Maybe that's why Ms. Collins decided to publish Trump's letter to the Times, for fear that Trump would get it into Vanity Fair instead.  Normally Collins just sucks the air out of any conservative by stamping out any last molecule of conservative thought from her Op-Ed pages.  Gail Collins is our Witch Finder General.  But with Trump, Collins apparently lost her cool, giving him all of Carnegie Hall to play his fiddle in.

So Trump got his talking points into the NYT, along with an audience of a million liberals who would normally shut their minds to any words critical of Barack Hussein Barry Soetoro Obama, Jr.

That was her first big mistake.  Here's the second one, which is much worse.  Here's the little tiff between them, with Trump losing the spelling bee, but Gail blowing her elementary logic  -- something she doesn't have much need for in her day job.

Wrote Trump in his NYT letter:

Even before Gail Collins was with the New York Times, she has written nasty and derogatory articles about me. Actually, I have great respect for Ms. Collins in that she has survived so long with so little talent. Her storytelling ability and word usage (coming from me, who has written many bestsellers), is not at a very high level. More importantly, her facts are wrong! ... Open your eyes, Gail, there's at least a good chance that Barack Hussein Obama has made mincemeat out of our great and cherished Constitution!
Ms. Collins has now responded in the Grey Lady's august pages, bitchily criticizing The Donald's lousy spelling.  Score a technical win for the NYT.  But Collins instantly commits a howler in elementary logic. Writes the Editor of the Op-Ed page, "But about [Trump's] letter.  Mainly, it's a list of alleged evidence that Barack Obama was not born in the United States."

But that is precisely what Trump never said nor wrote in his letter, which Ms. Collins apparently never read carefully.  Because Donald Trump is smart enough never to say that Obama wasn't born in the United States.  He just keeps wondering out loud in front of the cameras why the required legal documentation is missing from the public record.  The Constitution requires natural-born citizenship, and the Obama campaign, the Democratic Party, and every single state-level Secretary of State has failed to verify it.  Presumably because they can't.  All they can do is huff and bluster, which is exactly what Ms. Collins ends up doing.

If you remember your basic high school logic Ms. Collins' blooper should set off big fireworks in your mind.  Ms. Collins can't tell the difference between a positive statement of fact ("Obama was not born in the United States") and its logical obverse ("Obama has not proven that he was born in the United States").  She flunks Logic 101.  She could never get through Law School, not even the Post-Modern kind.

Now Gail Collins is closest America has to a Soviet Minister of Propaganda.  Whatever Gail's minions write today, all the ignoramuses will chorus in unison tomorrow.  In the mainstream media, nobody ever got fired for aping the New York Times.  So Collins is supposed to be the top advocate for the left.

Conservatives sometimes wonder whether the left outsmarts us.  Certainly they are constantly claiming to own a monopoly of the brains in America.  Now it's interesting to see a street-smart business guy like Trump, no matter how orange his hair, beating the High Priestess of Political Correctness hands down.

They're not smarter than conservatives are.

They are just a lot nastier and more brain-locked.
