I was on the radio Saturday with my friend Gary Wellings.
Gary hosts a radio show called The Drift and publishes a local newspaper The Courant.
Interestingly I have another friend that publishes a couple local newspapers.
These are side jobs these days :)
So Gary is a Trump supporter and we've been at it a few times on air.
He's a good guy and actually had me co-host once with the third caller in this audio, Mike from Ann Arbor.
Gary had been discussing the Clinton e-mails, but then got around to Trump/Cruz, red meat for radio shows. I called to say I liked his show generally, but don't really want to listen to a show that non-stop attacks my candidate. It went well. We attacked Hugh Hewitt instead. :)
Janie, the next caller, who held a very reasonable conversation with Gary, is a Cruz supporter.
Mike begins his call by attacking, personally, Janie,
Later in his call Mike attacks Cruz as a "Bible thumping preacher" supported by a bunch of Holy Rollers.
I find these ad-hominem attacks very Trump-like.
Low on information, high on vitriol.
There is also a near religious faith that Trump will overcome every poll existing showing him losing to Hillary.
Now here's my point.
In my call, I mention that Ted Cruz is a Constitutionalist, the only one in this race.
At the 17 minute mark, Mike addresses me and says that the Constitution is over.
Does it matter that more than one Trump supporter I've talked to is willing to neglect Trumps lack of devotion to the Constitution? Gary said something similar to me last summer about it being "over", but today showed concern for it.
After Obama, are we post-Constitution?
