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.

Full Breitbart

Trump's elevation of a Breitbart editor to campaign guru means a doubling down on the mean spiritedness and spittle-flecked conspiracy theories.  It likely means an attack on the Republicans in Washington, too.

Trump could very well have started a civil war within the GOP.  Previously, it was more like a minor insurgency over the tone of his campaign.  Now it's full on war.
