I Love This Article Title-Dr. Politics: Trump gives GOP a Wet Willy

Simon says Dr. Politics has the answers for all your political questions.
Dear Dr. Politics: Donald Trump has signed a loyalty pledge and now he can’t run as in independent in 2016, right? So now we can concentrate on serious stuff like all the global figures he has never heard of.
Answer: The pledge is a joke. That some people take it seriously is a testimony to how clever a deal maker Trump really is.
First, the pledge is nonbinding. It says: “I affirm that if I do not win the 2016 Republican nomination for President of the United States I will endorse the 2016 Republican presidential nominee regardless of who it is.”
That’s pure baloney. Everyone who has ever dealt with Trump knows that the only pledge he will honor is the one that goes: “Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye.”
The Republican pledge has no penalties. None. Not a noogie, not a wedgie, not even a wet willy. Trump laughs at it.
Dear Dr. Politics: So why did Trump go along with the pledge?
Answer: Because the pledge forces all the other Republicans to support Trump!
Jeb Bush will be forced to go before the cameras and say, “I support Donald Trump for president even though Mr. Trump says that I have less energy than a mollusk.”
If Trump wins the nomination, the other Republican candidates will have to line up to lick his boots.
Trump has called Lindsey Graham, the senior senator from South Carolina, a “lightweight” and an “idiot.”
So what happens if Trump gets the GOP nomination? Graham will be forced to say, “I support Donald Trump, which just shows how much of an idiot and lightweight I really am.”
So the pledge is joke that binds everybody except the one man who has no intention of honoring it: Donald Trump.
Ask Dr. Politics: So where did the pledge come from?
Answer: It was the brainchild of Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican Party. It’s his job to sit around party headquarters and get watered twice a week.
