Something [not so Perversely] Pleasurable...

Trump and Sanders riding high: Yet another major media misfire

There is something perversely pleasurable in watching the presidential campaign defy the usual experts.

Most White House contests are somewhat predictable. The insurgents fade and the well-funded grownups prevail in the end. It didn’t take a genius to figure out that George W. Bush and Al Gore would slug it out in 2000.

It was in that vein that the pundits were bemoaning a year ago that another Bush/Clinton faceoff would be a royal rerun.

So Jeb just clawed his way to a weak fourth place in New Hampshire, and Hillary was clobbered in almost every demographic.
