Campaign Snark

Count on Mark Steyn for "outa da ballpark" campaign snark, see the following comparing outsider candidates Trump and Sanders.
The difference between Trump's hijacking of the GOP primary and Sanders' attempt to do likewise to the Democrats is the difference between a fellow who means it and a guy who lacks the killer instinct.
Funny stuff, but in truth it's hard to know if Trump "means it" given his past participation in pro-wrestling psychodrama. Insincerity, after all, is the essence of successful bargaining. His shtick may just be a "bargaining position" taken to tip the deal in his direction, one he's willing to trade off for something he really wants.
