Quote note (#207)
Ominous creaking of the mainstream narrative mega-construct reaches NRO:
The liberal media establishment is frenzied in its animosity to Donald Trump, and their hysteria is becoming more vociferous and desperate as he utters clangorous violations of the normal parameters of political discourse. The echo chamber explodes, the commentariat foams at the mouth, but he seems to pay no penalty in the polls. I think there are two explanations for this: Donald doesn’t really say such outrageous things as his opponents spinningly impute to him; and vast sections of the population are more bitterly disappointed and angry at the deterioration of their country and the misinformation of the mainstream media than the subjects of that resentment can imagine.
Worth noting that Black is an FDR fan — which doesn’t say great things about his talent for sniffing out fascists.
(Disclaimer: XS wants Hillary — or preferably worse — to take the presidency in 2016. We’re only in this for the Nemesis.)
