    1. Casper's been busy interviewing on the Peter Boyles show December 26 (sample quotes):

      I grew up as a progressive liberal, in a household where you could do two things: vote Democrat, and buy Fords.

      Richard Nixon was my favorite President. He was a true, great warrior for human rights. (about 15 min in)

      Casper shared a story about being arrested for daring to check out a library book in the segregated South.

      Apparently, Ronald Reagan's affirmative action program made Casper into a Republican. It made him question all entitlement and safety net programs.  Like Clarence Thomas’s position , affirmative action was "OK for me, but not for thee."

      In the interview, Boyles characterized all racism as Democratic. Casper was happy to help.

      Casper has also been posting wild Clinton conspiracy stories on his Facebook page.

      1. I wonder if Casper has ever heard Richard Nixon's rants about race and intelligence…..

        And didn't Ronald Reagan select Meridian, Mississippi to launch his 1980 campaign all as a tribute to state's right?

  1. Trump has schlonged the GOP and the establishment hath schlonged themselves after years of preparatory ground work:

    The Washington Post’s Eugene Robinson's take on Donald Trump’s lasting impression on the Republican Party: 

    History will remember 2015 as the year when The Republican Party As We Knew It was destroyed by Donald Trump. An entity called the GOP will survive — but can never be the same.

    Am I overstating Trump’s impact, given that not a single vote has been cast? Hardly. I’m not sure it’s possible to exaggerate how the Trump phenomenon has torn the party apart, revealing a chasm between establishment and base that is far too wide to bridge with stale Reagan-era rhetoric. Can you picture the Trump legions meekly falling in line behind Jeb Bush or Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.)? I can’t either. […] 

    Trump has given voice to the ugliness and anger that the party spent years encouraging and exploiting. He let the cat out of the bag, and it’s hungry.

    1. Um, that article was written in Jan. 2015.  I suppose if Trump fails to garner actual votes and Cruz starts to gain momentum, there is a slim possibility Romney would entertain the idea of being the party's savior. 

      But regardless, the damage Trump has wrought is likely fatal. 

      Can't wait to get AC's take on this devil

    2. I just think that Mittens getting into the mix will be hillarious. I don't think he'll actually get the nomination but he'll drive the rest of them even battier than they already are.

      Can't you just heard the Donald, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul going off about the establishment striking back and Romney as the deus ex machina dropped in to save the party from the villagers with their torches and pitchforks!

       

      1. But is Gilmore still in the running? And will they finally fold the Kids' Table before the next debate? (I know they were threatening to send Rand there, but he said he wouldn't go.)

  2. So who's next? Who's still running? I'm hedging bets – Santorum, Gilmore, or Huckabee will drop out next. Rand Paul will stay in until after the Kentucky caucus in March, since he made them make a special accommodation for him, and paid for it, too.

    The next R debate is January 14. One of the three I named will get out either right before, or right after, that debate.

    And I hope that Joy Reid replaces Chris Matthews on Hardball…indefinitely.
