  1. How disappointing to find on The Millions. Please tell me you’re not another party line Democrat / liberal publication too!

  2. Well, The Donald hardly seems Republican, Democratic or even Independent. He sounds to my humble ears like a 2 bit populist demagogue riding the tsunami of fear and xenophobia currently gripping the country in an ideological half-nelson. And we know these guys are never really “liberal” or “conservative”, regardless of their stated affiliations. Sorry to go political — Iowa, it’s all in your hands!
