Tony Norman thinks that Donald Trump may have gone one con too many. A snippet (follow the link for the rest; it is worth your while):
Suddenly, even the dimmest pundit understood Mr. Trump’s modus operandi. Candidate Trump conned religious conservatives into giving up their concerns about his questionable morality in exchange for appointing only ideological conservatives to the U.S. Supreme Court. They also wanted someone like Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions as attorney general.
Methinks Mr. Norman waxes optimistic. Trump’s true believers, even among the punditocracy, will continue to believe the con because they want to believe (and their paychecks depend on their believing, or, at least, on professing that belief).
If they were willing to see through the smokescreen, they would have done so years ago.
