    Is dropping the F-bomb presidential? Yes! If Donald actually runs, forget "The Apprentice" and its ratings. Every 24 hr broadcast news channel that covers him extensively will see their ratings go through the roof. The man demands attention. Give it to him. Trump 2012!

    "When I want my men to remember something important, to really make it stick, I give it to them double dirty. It may not sound nice to some bunch of little old ladies at an afternoon tea party, but it helps my soldiers to remember. You can't run an army without profanity; and it has to be eloquent profanity. An army without profanity couldn't fight it's way out of a piss-soaked paper bag."

    "As for the types of comments I make", he continued with a wry smile, "Sometimes I just, By God, get carried away with my own eloquence."

    Trump has a bit of Patton in him.
