VDH: "Tooth-Gnashing in the Republican Establishment."
The Republican consultant Rick Wilson recently summed up the current angst when he dreamed that the GOP establishment should discover a way to “put a bullet” in frontrunner Donald Trump. Was that idiotic remark supposed to sound cool? Wilson added that one of the most worrisome things about the Trump ascendancy was his illiberal intention of shutting down illegal immigration. The donor class, Wilson warns, “can’t just sit back on the sidelines and say, ‘Oh well, don’t worry, this will all work itself out.’” Wilson apparently believes that America would otherwise have been glued to the Republican debates to see whether Jeb Bush had outpointed John Kasich.
