Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America welcome the news the Republicans Ron DeSantis and Rick Scott are officially the winners in the hotly contested Florida races and that Broward County elections chief Brenda Snipes is resigning after 15 years of incompetence and worse.  They also shake their heads as a retired U.S. Navy admiral contends President Trump’s treatment of the media is the greatest threat to democracy in his lifetime and Trump responds by calling the admiral a Hillary supporter who should have killed Osama bin Laden a lot sooner.  And they chronicle the staggering change in CNN commentator Kirsten Powers, who wrote a book on how the left is killing free speech but now says anyone who votes for Trump is a racist and that white women who back the president have joined forces with the patriarchy that oppresses them.

    Bill McRaven is a major league you-know-what. There’s a reason why he was forced out of his last civilian job as Chairman of the University of Texas Board of Regents. He’s full of himself and can STFU for all I care.

    Trump’s criticism was probably unfair*, but McRaven’s charge was one of the dumbest things ever said by someone of his prominence.

    *Maybe a different strategy in the hunt for bin Laden would have been more successful; and maybe McRaven could have made better decisions.
