We start out talking about the state of the election campaign. Among other things, we don’t understand why the newsmedia fails so miserably at understanding why Trump continues to do well. Maybe journalists and pundits don’t understand the base of the Republican Party, and that’s why they don’t understand his appeal to that base? The early contests—especially Iowa—make matters worse, since they’re all completely unrepresentative of the USA generally (and Iowa Republican politics is domoinated by fundamentalist Christian political activists).
As we start to wrap up, we talk a bit about Arthur’s summer off from work, which leads us to talk about going to the movies, since we were both about to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens at the time we recorded. What’s better—assigned seats or general seating? We have different views on that.
Everyone’s welcome to leave a comment (agree or disagree!).
