It’s going to take a huge investment to bring the property up to Trump standards.
I’ve spent a lot of the last few days comforting family members, friends, and many of my students who were feeling traumatized. And in comforting them, I’ve realized that I have a small sliver of hope about our future. Perhaps it’s pure naïveté, but I have hope that there’s at least one person in the Republican leadership with a bit of common sense. And I hope this person will be able to slow the knee-jerk agenda of the alt-right or the Freedom Caucus.
A poem, by Dave Helfert.
This revolution in communication isn’t over. The 2016 presidential campaign has brought us more dramatic transformations in the art and science of political communication. It’s changed what constitutes an appropriate statement by a candidate or campaign, and changed the content and nature of the news itself. Most of this has been driven by one candidate.
Among the leading contenders for Donald Trump’s general election running mate is former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich. Ironically, an Outsider Trump-Gingrich ticket would possible in large part because of a political revolution led by Insider Gingrich.
