Proving that he has absolutely nothing to offer our national conversation, Donald Drumpf took the stage this weekend and started spewing nonsense about how great it would have been if a Good Guy With A Gun shot into a confused crowd of terrified people with a magic bullet that somehow would have killed only the shooter.

As he held his finger like a pretend gun to his forehead, Trump said, "If we had people with the bullets going in the opposite direction — right smack between the eyes of this maniac."

If only bullets were magically able to tell the Bad Guys from the Good Guys, too.

"If some of those wonderful people had guns strapped right here, right to their waist or right to their ankle, and this son of a bitch comes out and starts shooting, and one of the people in that room happened to have it and goes boom, boom, you know what? That would have been a beautiful, beautiful sight, folks, that would have been a beautiful, beautiful sight," he added.

Actually, no. It would have been a bloodier sight, with more victims and carnage. But Trump runs on testosterone, not brains, so he didn't bother to think about it.

I rather like Stephen King's take on Trump's brand of nonsense.

Just file this under reason number umpty-zillion why Trump shouldn't be within miles of the nuclear codes.
