purpose? Consider these facts:
Fact: He continues to do all he can to alienate three of the largest minority groups in the nation.Fact: He does nothing about his lack of popularity with women.Fact: In addition, recent statements have now alienated the military and the NSA.Fact: He has no campaign organization or strategy to speak of, and shows no sign of plans to do so.Fact: His words and actions continue to separate him from the Republican Party's leadership.Fact: His words and actions have inspired new movements within the Party to undermine his candidacy.Fact: He once admitted that entering the race was just a lark, and he never expected to be nominated.Fact: He is exploring the possibility of starting his own cable tv network.Fact: Wouldn't he see this as a spectacular way to build his brand, even if only in his own mind? You have to admit, it makes as much sense as anyt…
