Kathryn, I won’t be the only one of your readers reminded of a classic movie line: “Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.”

Jonah, when you wrote, "... humans have the strange ability to create the villains they want to oppose," I not only thought, "Yeah," I thought, "Better not do that, Jay, ever." Wonderful column, as usual.

This column is so good, ought to be awarded a second Pulitzer Prize. Thank you, Bret.

We all say that Trump has a lock on the Republican party, that it's his party, that he's unchallengeable in it. That is probably right. But wouldn't it be interesting to test it? He might be vulnerable to a credible, bold challenger -- a conservative. But who would step up?

My guess is, the general Democratic electorate would go for Biden. But nominations are determined by primary and caucus voters. Will these voters want the lite beer of Biden, when harder stuff is available in the form of Warren, Harris, or someone else? I doubt it, but we'll see.

I have a new favorite story. I met a man born in Berlin (Jewish). The family got out. Came to America. On the first day of school -- Pledge of Allegiance. The immigrant kid reflexively gave the Nazi salute. His teacher said, "Um, we don't do that here in Connecticut."

I guess my bottom line to Trump Nation is this: Support him all you want -- but don't tell me he is a conservative and Jeb Bush, Mitt Romney, et al. are not. Spare me THAT, at least. Otherwise, "conservative" has no meaning whatsoever.

“Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately ...” I’m told by those who fancy themselves “true conservatives” that, while Jeb Bush, for example, is not a conservative, Trump is. This is both ignorant and galling. Impossible to stomach.

Does the Republican party really want to renominate this? (I’m afraid the answer is yes.)
