160. Hinge Moment
Jay and Mona begin with some Memorial Day reflections and then turn to the grim business of politics. This podcast is a protracted answer to those who say that this election is just a contest like all the others, a choice of the lesser of two evils, a hold-your-nose-and-pick one case. They think it’s different, a hinge moment that could destroy conservatism, and possibly much more. The week offered a perfect contrast: Gov. Susana Martinez, they urge, is the antithesis of Trump. Little good cheer this week, but honesty aplenty.
Music is the Marine Corps hymn in honor of Cpl. Nicholas Thom (whom Mona mentioned) and all those who gave their lives for this country.
