Walsh on the first GOP debate
Matt Walsh had another excellent editorial the other day. Here are some of my favorite quotes:
Given that (Donald) Trump is a lifelong liberal who's been bankrolling the Clintons for years, it has crossed my mind more than once that this whole thing is a Trojan Horse ploy to get Trump's good friend, Hillary, elected. If Trump runs third party, that will absolutely confirm my suspicions.
Now, I couldn't care less about political correctness, but actually, it is a problem that Trump says these things about women. Put aside the fact that Hillary Clinton could hang this around his neck and beat him silly with it. On a more fundamental level, a real man doesn't talk to women, or to anyone, this way. We have reached a very sad moment in the history of the conservative movement when a desperate, vulgar, juvenile brat can be hailed by the "values voter" constituency as brave and courageous because he calls women fat pigs and tells them to get on their knees. And to label such things merely "politically incorrect" is infuriatingly absurd.
Trump is not an honest man, or a good one. He doesn't have the courage to stand up against even the slightest challenge, and he has no discernible platform or plan. He lacks the ability to explain his conservative ideals, because they don't exist, and he can't give any specifics at all, because they don't exist.
