Charlie Cook? Never heard of him.

Can never keep all these guys straight: Charlie Cook, Charlie Kirk, Charlie Sykes. And there was a Brit Charlie whom Jane liked that seems to have disappeared from the scene, unless he's one of the above.

This is one time when it's nice to be voting in a blue neighborhood.

I'm in deep red country and it would be suicidal for agitators to cause trouble up here, but still...a little paranoia is a healthy thing.

I will make you this prediction: if Jack and Jill Antifa come up the hill from Charlottesville for a pail of trouble, nobody will ever hear from them again.

There are at least two Charlie Cooks that write on politics although one might have an "e" on the end or in the middle somewhere.

Narc...Jack Reacher this time is co-written with Lee Child's son for the first time. That NEVER works well in an attempt to extend a franchise. Generally my rule is to never read a book whose cover includes small print admitting to a co-author. I took a chance with this one and it is no good. This lesson, which I learned years ago from Tom Clancy, has never failed me.

Note, I read Kyle Mills on his own, but nobody can do Vince Flynn and Mitch Rapp.

Ignatz:

"Your restricted idea of what this class might consist of is not consistent with what I described nor is it too consistent with reality or history."

I was simply working from the only only argument you made for Trump being a natural denizen of the ruling class of "Marxists, far left progs, the Deep State and state capitalists," which was his status as "as a billionaire hatched by a centimillionaire in one of the twin capitols of the Ruling Class," something which still does not apply to any of your additional exemplars. Trump was always on a different track from the Harvard/Yale/Georgetown class as well as the Marxists & progs, etc. He was never a good fit for the ruling class, as you further describe it, either, so in that sense, alone, it's the concept of betrayal that is not particularly consistent with reality, nor particularly useful.

Yes, Trump wants to drain the tangled swamp you detail, and the swamp hates him for it. Not a surprise. I'm suggesting, however, that they don't despise him for betraying his class, they despise him for the temerity of thinking he's qualified to be part of it, and even worse, for presuming to school it and…. rule it. It's not that he's a traitor, it's that he's the very personification of the populism they've always scorned & feared.

The main reason I was wondering if the letter was legit or not is that if it was legit then IMO Trump and his campaign team would have been mentioning the letter a lot over the past week. I also assume the letter would have gotten published in multiple popular websites. The letter was written on OCT 25. Why are we just now learning about it?

Reporting in finally from a still very messed up ATL from hurrican zeta. We managed to get power back late last night after about 17 hours but adjacent communities inside perimeter are being told no power until sunday night. I honestly think there are simply not enough transformers to replace everything blown out about 5 am yesterday morning.

Many grocery stores without power so as people need to replace what is thrown out the supplies are low and rapidly diminishing. Steph-it's almost as bad as opal up here. As of 5 pm last night they still hadn't fixed the traffic light by all three hospitals on pill hill at J ferry and PDR. One of the highest priorities to fix because of all the ambulance traffic.

Jane

I think “Charles” who I know as Charlie is anti Trump. Not sure anymore.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

The Ruling Class has a unifying credo. Its membership is diverse in areas separate from that credo. Its members have different motivations for adopting that credo. There are regional differences among the members and many strata to it. But the credo abides.

It is so common as to be expected that very rich New Yorkers adopt that credo, even if the borough they are from is not Manhattan. The social pressure to do so is immense. And whether they are gauche or refined, nouveau riche or old money they are part of the club so long as they adopt the credo.
Trump has always resisted much of that credo and has therefore been at times an object of intense ridicule by the high priests of the Ruling Class such as the gruesome Graydon Carter. He is sometimes portrayed as a barbarian because he is expected to make a kow-tow he has never made. Had he adopted the credo he would have been portrayed as a little rough perhaps and a bit of a rascal, but a lovable and ultimately benevolent member of society's natural leaders and a favorite son of New York. They never rejected him completely because he was never aggressively anti-credo and made ambivalent statements and so they poked fun but they also hobnobbed and courted him in hopes of turning him back to where he should have been all along. They invited him to parties and gave him TV shows.
The main argument against him by conservatives as he ran for president was that despite his rhetoric we couldn't trust he'd be conservative because he was a rich New Yorker and had said suspect things and donated to suspect people.

When it turned out he was more conservative than anyone thought and in a most obstinate manner unexpected from lapdog Republicans and when he proved serious about actually threatening the governing credo of the Ruling Class, all hopes of courting him and turning him back to his proper place ended and total war was declared.
Had he sought instead the Strange New Respect Award and betrayed all those who voted for him by adopting the credo as president all would already have been forgiven, the press would worship him, the mavens would write him encomia and Joe Biden would be laughed off the stage as a senile old fuddy-duddy.

These same like self evident truths to me, but you seem to disagree over some point I'm not exactly clear on so this will probably never come to a meeting of the minds.

TM:

"The Hunter Biden thing won't change minds"

It's not going to turn a raging prog into a confirmed Republican, but there are a whole lot of people around the margins who weren't exactly thrilled with the Biden/Harris ticket to start with. If the Hunter news contributes to voter depression and/or apathy on the left, it's worth touting.

Any dem who shows up at a Trump rally is obviously open to persuasion, but at this point, it's not about conversions. As I understand it, what's important in the home stretch is discouraging the opposition and getting out your own voters. Changing minds is not the relevant strategy.

Based on FL early vote returns so far I don't see any way for Biden to take FL.

If he can't win FL he can't win, in my opinion. He'd have to almost run the table on PA, MI, WI, and ME-2.

Or flip AZ and two of MI, PA, WI.

If that were possible I don't think MN and NV would be as close as they are.

Extended quote for those who didn't click the link:

Joe Biden, the guy who used his son, a drug addict, to be his bag man. Why do you think he lost his teeth at 40 years old? …

Then after listing individuals around the world who Hunter dealt with, Rudy says this:

…What do you think happens to a drug addict, dad, when you put him in with people like that? He becomes a much worse drug addict. He becomes a degenerate drug addict.

You couldn’t find some bum in Washington to do this for you? You had to use your son and ruin his life? And you want to be President of our country? My goodness, you should check in to the local federal prison and start doing your time. That’s where you belong, not in the White House.

You used your family to pick up your bribes, hide your bribes, live the life of a billionaire. And by the way, I don’t think you failed in all those negotiations just because you’re stupid. I think you failed in those negotiations because you sold out the United States of America. That’s what I think you did. And you’re ready to do it again if we didn’t catch you.

JM Hanes

Ignatz:

The Ruling Class has a unifying credo. Its membership is diverse in areas separate from that credo. Its members have different motivations for adopting that credo. There are regional differences among the members and many strata to it. But the credo abides.
That sounds an awful lot like what folks used to call "The Man." Is credo a stand-in for "ideology," as you have previously defined it?
It is so common as to be expected that very rich New Yorkers adopt that credo, even if the borough they are from is not Manhattan.
Trump apparently being the very exception which proves your rule? Folks didn't hobnob and court him in order to draw him back into the fold where he belonged. They wanted him to contribute to causes social, political & commercial, but he was always more benevolent Godfather than fellow traveler. At every turn you describe a man who was tolerated by the ruling class, not a credentialed part of it, which was my initial point. You actually go further and make him sound like New York's pet monkey ("They invited him to parties and gave him TV shows.").
"These same like self evident truths to me."
Most of what you describe seems more like pop-psyche speculation and extrapolation from what you imagine life in "ruling class" New York to be. My own impression is that nobody took him seriously as a political (ruling class) force. When he stepped up to bat as a Republican, the opposition were not weeping and wailing about betrayal. He wasn't a traitor to his class, he was the idiot (upstart) who actually thought he could be President. They resent him for proving them completely wrong and desperately want to see him fail.

And no, he didn't betray the republicans who voted for him, but that doesn't mean he betrayed the folks who didn't vote for him.
