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.

Praying For The Pivot

When Trump said, "Believe it or not, I regret..." I'm going with "not."

However, if Bannon and Conway are able to smooth over some of Trump's language, we will be force fed the narrative of Trump's finally-successful "pivot" to a more moderate stance.

The reason is that by most historical models, this race is over.  Clinton leads outside the margin of error in enough states to get to 270.  Easily.

And that is death for the media.  The desperately need a competitive race to get eyeballs.
