Trump: The New Palin

I'm not sure if anybody else has made this observation... I expect so, as it's pretty obvious. Donald Trump saw a void in the Republican line-up created by the decline of Sarah Palin, and jumped in with both feet. Birtherism, "He couldn't really have gotten into a good college"-type sentiments, comments about "the blacks" (predictably followed by "some of my best friends are..."-type denials of racism), etc. - He's attempting to make himself attractive to uninformed, reactive, "not overtly racist, but not really fond of darker skin" set. And it's working.
