Stop the world, I want to get off!

With a week and a bit to go, I'm so over it.  Between the debates being almost hostile.  (Seriously, it wouldn't have surprised me if one candidate tried to slap the other), the nasty attack ads.... that reference other attack ads, and the sniping on Facebook.. I'm over it.

Then Donald Trump came along:

My first reaction to this supposed big news was to laugh my ass off.  Then I had some thoughts:

  1. The colleges can't release anything without the President's signature.  They can't release your transcripts without your signature
  2. He wants college applications?  Those will be LONG gone.  In Virginia they are destroyed 5 years after the student graduates.  If he wants ALL the colleges the President applied to, those are usually destroyed within 2 years.
  3. Passport applications?  Seriously?  What would that accomplish?
  4. How is his not releasing everything being non-transparent?  And is he really saying he's less transparent than say.. Nixon?
  5. Seriously, can this madness end?  Please?
