The Atlantic: "Donald Trump and the Search for the Republican Soul"

RedState’s editor, Erick Erickson, may be the most powerful conservative in America. ... “The Republican Party created Donald Trump,” Erickson told me, “because they made a lot of promises to their base and never kept them.” Voters are drawn to Trump, he said, because “he’s burning down the Republican Party that never listened to them to begin with.”

2. I think it's also true that Trump is entertaining, self assured and charismatic

I don't think his ideas have substance but he really, REALLY stands out in a party whose other candidates are complete stiffs and have always been boring stiffs. Walker, Jeb, Rand, Jindal, Kasich et. al have zero personality and presence. In fact they have less than zero.

3. The funniest sentence in the piece...

When and if (Trump) finally stalls out or quits, the deep Republican divisions that he has successfully exploited will remain, bedeviling whichever candidate ends up with the booby prize of the nomination.

5. *laughs*

The Grand Ol' Perverts wouldn't know what a soul looked like if it bit them in the ass. What they are really saying is that they are running out of suckers. The Dem party is too.
