Okay, now that the two biggest publicity sluts of the political season have shown their wares, which do you think is more pathetic?

I mean....partisan politics aside I'd still go with Trumps.

Mostly just because it wasnt even a 'surprise'. Just some dumb thinly veiled quasi blackmail attempt. Plus Obama could say "sure thing, get Mitt to release his tax returns and I'll match your donation".

The Allred thing though isnt going to have any sort of an impact at all. No one will care.

I will go with Allred, she can't even get the judge to expedite the case for her to make a political issue happen.

This is a little premature--we aren't even sure what the "October surprise" for Romney is yet, and we won't unless the judge agrees tomorrow to open the records for the Stemberg divorce trial. It's not really Allreds surprise either--the Boston Globe is the group suing to have the records opened, and TMZ is alleging it's because Romney may have lied under oath during his testimony to the court during the case. If that's true, he's in a world of hurt.

On the other hand, Donald Trump is pathetic just for breathing. He wins hands down, just for being "the Donald."

I picked the Donald because the Donald always comes in first.

Both equally lame!


Although, I would like to see what Trump is trying to get at, too.
I think there are many that would like to see what the President is hiding in those documents.

I'm going with Allred being more pathetic solely because of the fact that charities will benefit if Obama steps up and meets Trump's challenge. In contrast, Allred's move is pure selfishness on behalf of the Democrats.
