The media and fans of political comedy are rejoicing today: Donald Trump is running for president. Well, supposedly — he made his announcement today, but he hasn't filed a financial disclosure form yet, something that cynics doubt he will really do. 

The Democratic National Committee had some fun, issuing this statement: 

Today, Donald Trump became the second major Republican candidate to announce for president in two days. He adds some much-needed seriousness that has previously been lacking from the GOP field, and we look forward to hearing more about his ideas for the nation. 

Trump's style is best described as psychedelic nationalism. He said he was the best job creator God ever made, and "I beat China all the time," and all sorts of other stuff over the course of a rambling speech that is still going on as I type. 

The reality television diva actually poses a problem for the GOP, as he stands a pretty good chance of using name recognition to eke out a spot in the top ten in terms of polling average, which would get him a seat at the debate. The Republican Party probably doesn't want this embarrassment on stage. The data crunchers at Nate Silver's 538 have concluded that Trump might be the most unpopular candidate for president in history.
