Trevor Timm thinks he has discovered part of Donald Trump’s appeal.

For Trump supporters, it doesn’t matter what he says, just how he says it. And if Republicans think calling out Trump’s flip-flops will actually matter, they will soon look as foolish as the journalists guaranteeing his demise after the McCain comments. It only guarantees he will attack them more . . . .

Read the rest.

Werner Herzog’s Bear tries to understand the appeal of Donald Trump. A snippet (emphasis added):

The Right wing media has become powerful over time in framing the news and even the basic political frameworks of conservatives (I know this just from discussions with family members). While Fox and right wing talkers openly espouse racial resentment and xenophobia, politicians to be respectable have to resort to dog whistles and euphemisms. They say things like “upholding the law” and “securing the border.”

Donald Trump doesn’t do any of that, which is why his naked appeals to anti-immigrant hatred make him more, not less popular. This is why his Birther beliefs didn’t get him discredited for life. He is just openly saying what a lot of conservatives already think. The Republican party leaders are like the sorcerer’s apprentice. They have called into being a Tea Party that helps get their legions of voters to the polls, but now it has been exploited by a man who is totally outside of their control. This simply could not have happened forty years ago.

Leonard Pitts, Jr., tries to figure out the appeal of blowhard buffoonery to the Republican Party.

Don’t let anybody say we ought not note with alarm the fact that 17 percent of Republicans think this loud-mouthed, attention-seeking self-aggrandizing carny barker is fit to be president. Trump has climbed six percentage points since June, vaulting ahead of Jeb Bush, who remained steady at 14 percent.

The billionaire developer and reality-show host did this because of, not despite, a portfolio of absurd promises, xenophobic rhetoric and preposterous assertions. . . .

And what do 17 percent of Republican votes see in this cornucopia of the bizarre? Let 59-year-old Steve Fusaro of San Clemente, California, speak for them all: “He’s got some backbone,” he told pollsters.

Backbone.
