This morning, I read this very interesting and informative piece about Jared Kushner, Trump's increasingly powerful son-in-law. Note in particular the network of connections linking Kushner with such diverse players as Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, and Glen Beck. Note also the patently deliberate campaign to portray him as the moderating, even liberal, force moving Trump toward respectability. You and I do this politics thing as a sideline, as a hobby, perhaps even as a passion, but we are up against smart people who do it twenty-four hours a day as their profession. The only thing we've got going for us is that there are more of us than there are of them.
