Like the cheesy Trump taco bowl tweet I wonder if these faux outrages are ingeniously put out into the social media stream in order to get the underlying message out there. How many times was the image above tweeted and reported for free? A bunch. And while people disposed to see racism or bias everywhere remain unconvinced or enraged, most people either see the formal message of her corruption or the meta message of hair-trigger political correctness, which real conservatives think is the bane of our existence.
I’ve said before his campaign is anti fragile because it gains strengths from certain kinds of attacks. It’s not merely robust; it is strengthened by efforts to weaken it. And rather than counseling him to add staff or to be more presidential, I’d personally rather smash the PC paradigm than have a well-funded, focus-grouped, “on message” candidate with the wrong losing message like Jeb or Romney. It’s neck and neck and will be so until the end, but that’s better than the slow attrition loss of a Romney or McCain (or the one that inevitably would have come with Jeb, Graham, or the other establishment guys).
