Al Wilson, Donald Trump, the farmer and the viper

Not since Pat Buchanan has a competitive American presidential candidate demonstrated an understanding of a nation as anything more than the collection of propositions it putatively stands for. Not until Trump, that is:

After all, when the scorpion stings the frog, the scorpion loses, too. For the snake, on the other hand, the situation is win-win.

Tangentially, he also understands that a tendency for pusillanimous prostration is not a desirable trait in anyone aspiring to be a leader of men (and women):

Trump's paternal line is German. This is not coincidental.

His father had to hide their German ancestry from Jewish tenants after WW2. He said they were Swedish instead.
