From Ian Lindquist’s review of Larry Arnn’s Churchill’s Trial: Winston Churchill and the Salvation of Free Government:
Churchill walked into the men’s room in Parliament and noticed that Clement Attlee, his replacement as prime minister and leader of Britain’s Labour Party, was his sole restroom companion. The rambunctious former prime minister sauntered down to the urinal furthest from the peacetime P.M. Attlee, sensing something amiss, turned to him and quipped: “Feeling a bit standoffish today, are we, Winston?” Churchill, presumably doing his business at this point, rejoined: “No. It’s just that whenever you see something big you want to nationalize it!”
Sir Winston should have take that act on the road.
Speaking of which, I have that book on my Kindle. Must get around to reading it.

No, not me, silly. The great Andrew Klavan:
It’s parody, of course (1), but Andrew captures well the irrational spirit of most arguments I hear from Trump supporters about why their guy is great: they’re angry, they want to stick it to the GOP “establishment” (2), he’ll make America “great” again (whatever that vague expression means), and they’re angry. Point out the truth about Trump’s record, how it clearly shows he’s unfit to be president, and you’re greeted with non sequiturs, irrelevancies, and anger.
Anger is not a winning voting strategy. Don’t vote angry. Use your reason and vote for the best and only conservative left in the race.
(1) In fact, I think he was as Cruz supporter from the start, but don’t quote me on that.
(2) A word that’s been so widely and sloppily applied it almost lacks meaning these days.

That’s pretty much how I feel about the prospect of having those two as the nominees in November.

From Prager University, here’s George Will in a very amusing video wherein he imagines the ideal PC universe:
It’s funny because it’s so true.
