    You can always tell someone who didn’t pay any attention to the DNCLeaks fiasco: They’re surprised by Donna Brazile’s comments. A year after I thought everyone knew what the Democrats were doing, it is shocking to find out people don’t know.

    I do believe Kevin has hit a new low for nihilism. Yep, there was absolutely no evidence that 2016 was a watershed election. None whatsoever.

    Is it just me or do all the Mad Dogs and Englishmen podcasts cut off abruptly at the end? KW said ‘do you know who isn’t overrated as a president’? And I got all interested, but answer came there none… @blueyeti could you help please?

    Kevin said something like “The competition is everywhere.”

    This topic makes me insane. Lefties are trying to force people into cities and central plan the hell out of them at the same time there are massive organic forces that are making sure this won’t happen. The waste in the Minneapolis – St. Paul area due to this stupidity is staggering. Fortunately the MNGOP is getting control of it to some degree.

    I seriously wish National Review or whatever would cover this commie nonsense sometime.

    Why hasn’t anyone written a book about how the Ruling Class Democrats REALLY think? Disgusting and stupid plutocrats.

    We have the democracy that Adams warned about because of this.

    It’s a running joke on the podcast. It took me a few episodes to catch on.

    On one of their first podcasts, they considered on air how they should conclude. They decided just to stop talking.

    Isn’t it kind of silly to talk about Bill Clinton winning without mentioning Ross Perot? Absent Perot, the GOP would have kept winning, and Bill & Hill would be a mere footnote in American history. Possibly Obama never would have happened.

    Bill may have been charismatic, but the guy with the funny ears delivered him the presidency. Never forget that.

    I have said for 25 years that I have never met anyone who voted for Ross Perot who said they would have voted for Bill Clinton. Darn near all of them were Bush voters, and if the choice had been just the two of them, Bush would have won in a landslide, “read my lips” or not, and you are right, American would be a totally different place today. It is possible Clinton could have won in ’96, however. But maybe no Lewinski, no Paula Jones… hmmm, come to think of it, maybe the Bimbo Eruptions would have happened after the election, and Bill would have retired in shame to Arkansas and his law firm. Wow. My head hurts now. Ross Perot is literally The Butterfly Effect.

    Charles, on his recent post on NRO, even makes reference to this running joke:

    “…there’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen, my long-running and peremptorily ending podcast with Kevin D. Williamson…”

    I read somewhere of a study that about 3/4 of the Perot voters would have voted for Bush, and 1/4 would have voted for Clinton in a two man race. I read this a long time ago, and I don’t remember the source.

    I was interested in their discussion of living in or the vicinity of New York, and especially the public transport trains they used to commute.

    I took the latest NR Cruise which started in Southampton, England and ended in New York. But my journey to Southampton started from a direct flight from Fairbanks to Frankfurt. I spent a few days, riding the public transportation there. I did something similar when I reached England and rode the regional trains from London to Southampton.

    When I arrived in New York, I spent a few days there as well, staying in a Hotel in Stamford, CT and riding the train into Grand Central Station.

    I found that the London and Frankfurt regional trains were superior to New York’s. In the case of the MTA ride from Stamford, the train went slower, often rocked back and forth, indicating that track maintenance was being neglected.

    The New York subway system, mentioned by Kevin, which has gotten some publicity lately, isn’t the only problem that MTA is having.

    Regarding the discussion that Kevin and Charles had regarding Trump’s gaining the nomination, and the fact that institutionally the GOP leadership did little to stop him, I thought I’d point out that at the time Trump started running, there was some fear by the GOP elite that he would do a Perot and run third party. I think that many National Review people were expressing it as well, if not in print, but during yet another cruise I attended.

    They kept him in the fold for that reason, figuring he would never actually win.

    As it happens, if both parties had kicked out both Bernie Saunders and Donald Trump, and both had run as 3rd party candidates, they would have probably cancelled each other out.

    Bill may have been charismatic, but the guy with the funny ears delivered him the presidency. Never forget that.

    First, I would say that until the impeachment proceedings, when Bill Clinton had to move left to garner the support of more of his party, Clinton was a moderate Democrat just as George H.W. Bush was a moderate Republican.

    So, there wasn’t that much difference between the two. And when a Republican breaks a campaign promise so central to his first campaign, then he deserves to lose the support of the people who put him there initially.

    Also, Republicans like Bush (and I would include both of the Presidents and Jeb) only grow government slower than Democrats, but they still grow it.

    I voted for Perot, with no regrets.

    Is the New York office of National Review going to close? Other than Rich Lowry, who works there anymore?

    Kinda like they discussed during the podcast, but do they need a central office anymore? I don’t know the magazine business, but people can write columns from anywhere now and they talk about traveling a lot. Media seems to be getting more and more decentralized.

    Just curious, but did Charlie say where in Florida he lives now?
