“If a chair company decided to charge $300 for their chairs, somebody else would set up a woodshop, sell their chairs for $250, and make a killing – and so on until chairs cost normal-chair-prices again.

‘Trump’s rabid core has no parallel on the Republican side of the aisle. When Hoft asks, “When was the last time you saw HUNDREDS OF MIDDLE AGED PEOPLE Chase down a candidate’s caravan?,” the answer is: Barack Obama. Trump’s support looks like Obama’s: projection of hope onto a blank canvas, and belief that the canvas must be invested with as much power as humanly possible to break the political machine.
