THE GOP ESTABLISHMENT IS GETTING DESPERATE
Don’t look now, but we’ve weighed in twice now over the last week against positions taken by GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump – the guy whose populist candidacy we endorsed prior to this year’s “First in the South” presidential primary.
(See here and here for those columns).
This time, though, we’re coming down decidedly on the side of “The Donald.”
At issue? The Ku Klux Klan – and specifically Trump’s failure to repudiate an endorsement his campaign received from one of the organization’s former leaders, David Duke.
First of all, think about the verbal meandering required to follow this latest example of PC insanity: We’re supposed to be angry at someone for “failing to repudiate an endorsement?”
Really? Sounds a lot like leaving the cap off the toothpaste. Or not putting the toilet seat down.
