I've only been to one political rally in my life - but it wasn't for political reasons. Some guy running for governor of my state had the support of some members of a band I liked, and they came out of retirement and played a free show.

Tonight, I have a chance to attend my 2nd political rally - and if I go, I suppose I am going for the purpose of being entertained again. Only this time, there is no band. Just Donald Trump.

The circus is in town, but for one night only - and I don't mean that as an insult or a compliment, but some sort of combination of the two.

If I go through with it, I could claim it is for research, for all of you - but I have my selfish reasons.

I want to hear what he's going to say next, hear the crazy lines the news shows will obsess over until he one-ups himself. I want to see who comes out - are they passionate supporters, undecided voters, thrill seekers.

Love him or hate him, he's entertaining. He's the monkey at the zoo, throwing his poop at the window. Jeb and Hillary are the iguanas, motionless - all day. You know which ones you'd rather watch, and you also know which ones you will choose for a pet to turn loose in your house, when that time comes.

My fellow Americans - enjoy the next fourteen and a half months. Enjoy the monkey. I am.
