George Will, Mara Liasson, and Charles Krauthammer -- augurs all!

Remember over the summer when every week some member of the GOP establishment was predicting the imminent demise of Donald Trump's presidential campaign (really, these pundits' powers of prognostication rival those of Dick Morris!)?

Was that recurring insight more perceptive than their assertions that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction? More perceptive than their insistence that Hispanics are "natural conservatives"? More perceptive than their belief that toppling secular dictators in the Middle East and North Africa would usher in an age of Jeffersonian liberalism in the Muslim world? More perceptive than their promise that if the country elected a Republican majority in 2014 they would defund Obamacare?

Man, they've been spot on so many times that it's difficult to identify a specific instance of perspicacity that trumps (heh) all the others.

Parenthetically, as Steve Sailer likes to point out, the left likes to act as though it's 1960 and they haven't been in charge of most everything over the last half century.

However, a change in the American quotidian, if it comes at all, will come from the right.
