The Trumpster, Unleashed

Entry Img

“Riling Up the Crazies.” John McCain knows his party pretty well. In response to Donald Trump’s Mexican trash talk, the Times reports that McCain said, “Trump is riling up the crazies.” Yesterday, at a Republican political forum, Trump replied: “He’s not a war hero.

Last week the Washington Post reported, “During a heated exchange with another commenter, Guy Estergall, a 26-year veteran of the Cleveland Fire Department, wrote that the “overwhelming majority of pedophiles are homosexuals” before calling on the man to get psychiatric help “to become normal.” The smashup was in reference to a Facebook page showing a tearful […]

A Confederacy of Dunces*

Entry Img

The Revisionist Itch Last week South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley signed legislation removing the confederate battle flag from the statehouse.
