Donald Trump’s post-impeachment glow among voters and donors is frightening Democrats. Bernie Sanders seems set to win the New Hampshire primary, and the primary voters who oppose him are divided among several alternative candidates. Is his victory a foregone conclusion?

    This podcast has become my twice weekly dose of comedy. Today’s episode did not disappoint…from JPod’s admission that he was completely wrong about impeachment to Noah’s pearl clutching about the transfer of the Vindmans…pure gold.

    Christine Rosen says that Pete Buttigieg dies not talk down to people. 

    It seems to me that he talks down to conservative Christians and Vice President Pence all the time.

    I think we’re at that point in the election cycle where even conservative journalists start confusing the forest for the trees. It may be true that Mayor Pete is very good at not talking down to the screaming mobs of Maoist lefties base Democratic primary voters in Iowa and New Hampshire. That doesn’t mean he comes across similarly when in front of the broader electorate, especially when you consider how difficult it is to make the SJW left happy and not come across as deeply condescending to non-elite voters.

    To take this to a truly erudite level, talking about Mike Pence, fundamentalist Christianity and basically mainline Christian religions in general to Pete Buttigieg is the equivalent of Curly saying “Niagara Falls” around Moe in that old Three Stooges short — the calm (and calculating) retail politician Mayor Pete is about other things suddenly disappears, and you have this angry absolutist demanding that those mainline denominations get with the times and adhere to his beliefs on how the Church should deal with LTBTQ issues or else.

    He’s the only Democratic candidate more upset talking about Pence than he is about Trump, and he’s going to have trouble squaring that circle with black churchgoers, many of whom share the same feelings on LGBTQ issues as Pence does.

    Yevgeni Vindeman is also believed to have provided the copy of Boltons book to the New York times, as his role was in that area. Both of them by the way were brought by John Bolton from what I understand as well.
