Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

What are the media going to talk about when it becomes apparent that Trump can never get elected?

I mean, of course, he can get elected.  It's within the realm of possibility. But in reality, he can't.  He's toxic, and he's incapable of keeping his foot out of his mouth.  In fact, he mistakes the bounces he gets with the GOP electorate for being an asshole with actual campaign acumen.

The horse race is over, so all we will have is the reality show, which will both help and hurt Trump.

If the media feels bad about elevating this orange-tinted sack of bile, they could focus on the actual issues this fall.
