What a wild night in New Hampshire! In the words of one political reporter, "The voters sent a powerful anti-Washington message." A xenophobic Republican demagogue "stoked citizen anger against the inside-the-Beltway establishment, loudly invoking the '30s populism of Huey Long." The triumphant candidate fed off the "anxieties" of his fans. He "speaks his mind and damns the consequences."
"I love Bernie! I've donated to his campaign! He's great!" my super conservative Beltway establishment Republican friend says. "Feel the Bern!!" He texts me with a snicker during all of the Democratic debates. The night of the Iowa Caucus I retaliated, texting, "Cruz! I'm so happy!!" I knew that'd make him cringe.
