That a political party, a political system and a media blessed with broad constitutional freedoms have allowed a man like this to get so close to the presidency should be a matter for serious introspection. And that introspection should start now.-- E. J. Dionne
The recent article by E. J. Dionne from which the quote above is taken is the media at its best. Mr. Dionne and a few others, mostly from The Washington Post and The New York Times, have led the way in calling out the media for their normalization of a man patently unsuited to the Presidency of the United States. The media have not been the only ones playing this game. Prominent Republican candidates have been playing the game, too, notably Christie, McConnell, Ryan, and Giuliani.
The Post's editorial yesterday addressed to any remaining undecided voters was an excellent advice book for unaware citizens who might yet be tempted by the Trump show. The article linked to below is a good prelude to that editorial.
