RG - Great comment. The most direct, and elegant, statement of where this election has taken the Republican/conservative electorate.

Would be nice if the #NeverTrump'ers would wake up and realize this is no longer a primary election between Trump and *their* preferred choice.

It is a fundamental choice between 'Mr. Less Than Perfect' and 'Miss Corruption 2016'. Shouldn't be so difficult for them to accept.

Re: Narciso's 05:54

This is the offensive Bible verse that the US Marine was Court-Martialed for, for having this posted on her work desk: “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.” Book of Isaiah

This is part of the Satanic prayer that opened yesterdays meeting of the Kenai Borough Assembly: "Hail Satan."

A pretty good snapshot of where we are in this country.

Rand Paul agrees that Hillary! continues to lie about breaking US laws and belongs in jail.

Giuliani states that the Clinton Foundation is a fraud, and Hillary! should be indicted. This is the big league version of the Clinton Arkansas Rose Law Firm. The State Dept. was turned into a pay-to-play operation. In his opinion, this foundation fraud is worse than the emails.

Lying to Congress can get you 5 years..if your name is not Clinton.

Criticizing the Clintons can be dangerous to a person's health. Watch out, Rudy and Rand.

Why creating a crypto backdoor is a bad idea, as Microsoft leaks its own backdoor key. Giving a copy to the government (as the FBI demands) simply adds another place to leak the key (via an FBI tech agent who works for China perhaps).

Underneath it all she is still a New England Liberal, at least culturally; she is just intelligent enough to be uncomfortable with their general politics, but not bright enough to understand that she is nowhere close to the local Brahmin class, and that some of the airs of that class that she mimics are really just postures put out by said class. It is all rather pathetic.

In the particular case here she completely misses that point, and still hankers after the "Politico speak" that has been all too disastrous for the nation since Reagan left office. She really should just go back to the Democrats--she is in over her head.

Yesterday, I caught about 40 seconds of Mark Levin's show. Not intentionally, I assure you! He whined that the election was a choice between slitting his throat or cutting off his arm. Then he sighed, soulfully.

Who knew which was which. Decisions, decisions. Poor Mark.

I cannot understand what people like Levin are crying about. Is not Trump's economic plan as he has laid out pretty much what (non-globalist) conservatives have talked about for years? Lower taxes, radical De-regulation, etc.

I get that Trump is not much of an ideological social con, though he seems to live much like one, but Levin is not really one either. I read his book on new amendments to the Constitution, and Levin seems a sort "restoration legal structuralist", to coin a term. (I confess that I actually enjoyed the book.)

It is true that at least on the surface Cruz was more "ideological pure", but I have to wonder now how deep that was. In any event, the lawyerly, senatorial approach he seemed to want to bring to bear in the WH would most likely have never gotten anywhere. Even getting there would have been deeply problematic;I really do think that someone as thin skinned as he would have been devoured by the media onslaught had he been the nominee.

Again, people Like Levin seem to be having some sort of menopausal vapors.

It really will not due to damn with faint praise. What does he imagine he accomplish with nonsense like this. Get behind the nominee. It is childish and extremely selfish.

If Trump can really get his plans implemented, stifle the Globalists and turn the economy around, that will lead to other things. Once the elites are proven wrong (and to be paper tigers too) then we can start realigning the nation politically.

Levin and Co. seem more interested in their opinions rather than setting the nation right.

It's college radio so I made mention a couple times of his audience of millions over the air and online. We got one call about the music being played.

daddy

For a guy who is generally on the same side of the issues as Mark Levin is, his incessant anger is so off-putting now that it drives me away. I gave him about 3 minutes today, then swapped to Hannity, then turned the radio off.

I cannot imagine that Levin is winning any new listeners to his arguments because I cannot imagine Levin getting any new listeners.

It is a shame that the mellow and thoughtful Dennis Prager is so hard to find on the airwaves, whereas Levin is omnipresent. Prager just had on Dan Henninger in a thoughtful discussion of intelligence and substance, and they made some excellent points without bombast or spittle. Prager at least has defeating Hillary as his primary goal and that is very evident. Levin's Primary goal, whatever it is, gets lost in the shouting.

Of odd interest, last 2 nights, due to the lineup, I wind up doing the dog walk with Michael Savage. He has been getting calls from Gay Libs commenting on how they can't abide CNN, MSNBC, etc, but they also can't abide Rush or Beck or Levin, so they wind up listening to Savage. How odd. They mention it is his music and asides about restaurants in San Fran, etc.
