Beloved presidential politics rodeo clown Donald Trump has finally released his statement, and it's pretty embarrassing: He's offering five million dollars to charity if President Obama releases his college transcripts and his passport applications. Trump stipulates that Obama has to release those records "to my satisfaction," which means he'll never give up the five millions dollars, even if President Obama tried to play his little game. He calls President Obama "the least transparent president in history."

It's kind of sad to see Trump's long, glorious career of flirting with the press throughout the 2012 election season end with this, which is something between a wet fart and a sad trombone sound. The poor guy is going to miss the spotlight until he starts clowning the 2016 election cycle, isn't he?

Now, the important thing is that we can't let this distract us from the biggest political question of the day, which is this: Will Mitt Romney retract his endorsement of Richard "God intended [rape]" Mourdock? If he does, he'll look like a flip-flopper to crazy teabaggers and uninformed voters. If he doesn't, he proves that he believes women are second-class citizens. His campaign has avoided the question for now, but they can't keep it up for much longer. UPDATE: Probably hoping to hide the news under the Trump announcement, the Romney campaign just announced that they're standing with Mourdock. Yeah, I kind of figured they'd go for the women-are-second-class-citizens option.
