1. I disagree with Mr. Meckler.

    There are two Republican establishments. One is the economic laissez-faire and the other is the religious fundamentalist. Unifying the two was a masterstroke of politics, but they are essentially in conflict (cf. Luke 14:13, Matthew 19:24 (and no, it’s not a gate of Damascus), Matthew 25.40, all KJV). Eventually such an alliance was going to fall apart.

    So it’s not that either Trump nor Cruz are anti-establishment. They’re both pro-establishment; of their fraction of the establishment.

    I’m not sure who I’d prefer in charge. The Ayn Rand economists or the Kenneth Ham fundamentalists. Both seem a bit of a nightmare…
