1. The Rise (and Fall) of Donald Trump

You can’t turn on the news these days without hearing about Donald Trump.  As I write this, one poll has him favored by 28 percent of Republican voters, far more than the gaggle of other Republican candidates.  Trump’s genius for self-promotion, coupled with his brashness and disregard for anyone else’s opinion, is creating a media firestorm and effectively blocking coverage of the other candidates.  Has anyone heard anything lately about Bobby Jindal, Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio, George Pataki, or . . . well, the list goes on?  If Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination, he will be the first candidate to win through controversy, confrontation, and sheer bluster.

Well, Terry, your piece was entertaining, informative, and with regard to your conclusion, right on the mark. As an acknowledged right wing neanderthal, I am in complete agreement. Perhaps by couching your argument in such a good read, more of our intellectual friends will understand the true immediate danger we all face, especially when considering the constant soft pedaling that terror still receives in so many quarters.

Best to Debra,

Thank you Terry for a most interesting and frightening analysis...I would have never thought of the ghouls and zombies of our imaginary classic tales coming to life (reality) in the form of ISIS, but they have indeed. Brilliantly said, and truly scary.

This piece and your spot-on comments about Trump make it doubly scary. Let's hope some sanity prevails and that we do not elect him into office. As to ISIS, who knows how to solve that one? What is this world coming to?
