Combat! blog’s New York residency comes to an end today, having proven enjoyable as always. I’m not saying I’ve been living high on the hog, but I did spend much of yesterday afternoon in the Russian and Turkish baths. I will spend today afternoon on an airplane, less relaxed but similarly confined. While I indulge the conversation of strangers, how about you read this sobering, insightful assessment of why Donald Trump could win the Republican nomination for president. We’re a little more than three months out from the Iowa primary, with a cascade of less evangelical, more Trump-dominated states to follow. What starts as comedy ends as tragedy, or at least schadenfreude. We’ll back tomorrow with a real blog from our Montana home, watched by our Montana goldfish.
