Curmudgeon’s Corner: Bailing Out!

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner podcast Sam and Ivan talk about the situation with Turkey, Russia and Syria for awhile, then cover Election 2016, with, of course, a concentration on the Trump phenomenon and what it continues to mean for the Republican nomination race. Those are the “big topics”, but we also touch on car shopping, some movies Sam watched recently, Argentina, Baby Hitler, demographics of the folks who like the podcast on Facebook, and a lot more.

  • 18:33:19 Retweeted @JayCostTWS 18:27:34 Dear GOP Geniuses: Trump is range-bound ~30%. Your goal is not to "take him down" but to get the non-Trump vote to consolidate around you.
  • 18:46:47 Retweeted @drvox 18:24:26 I think part of the GOP establishment’s angst is that it’s discovering how little GOP voters care about economic conservatism.
