Quote of the day

"Trump may be raw, crude and uninformed, but he’s also smart, intuitive and a quick study who will presumably get up to passable speed as he assembles a brain trust over the coming months. Whether Trump can temper his shoot-from-the-hip impetuosity is another matter. There is a huge gap between the teeth-gnashing fulminations of the anti-Trump mainstream media and the perfectly reasonable Trump supporters whom I hear calling into radio talk shows. The machinations of the old-guard GOP establishment to thwart Trump voters and subvert the primary process are an absolute disgrace. But it’s business as usual for tone-deaf party leaders who, barely more than a day after the discovery of Antonin Scalia’s corpse last month, stupidly proclaimed there would be no hearings for an Obama nominee to the Supreme Court." -- Camille Paglia.

  1. Meh. Not a bad characterization, but it seems a bit superficial. - Elric

  2. This is from a woman who supports Bernie Sanders. Presumably, she's impressed with his scholarly and statesmanlike manner.

  3. "he’s also smart, intuitive and a quick study who will presumably get up to passable speed as he assembles a brain trust over the coming months"

    This is an equally apt description of Bill Clinton, and we all know how much praise the Democrats have given him.

  4. And I thought that the position concerning the Supreme Court nominee was a rare show of spine. Why would she portray or as "business as usual"?
