If you're gonna get stuck with a re-run (and you are), how about going way back, to the "Before Times," when Trump was but a looming nightmare? Such was the scene, way back in 2015. Hey, that rhymes!

Bobby Jindal dropped out of the presidential race, but he couldn’t pull David Waldman down with him. David will be on this week for at least today and tomorrow, but then he has to start preheating his oven.

Ben Carson is usually a good surgeon, not necessarily a good historian, even though he wrote a book. Maybe his wife & co-writer Candy Carson did the proofreading.

Greg Dworkin brings good news for poll fans — a lot of polls! Greg reminds us that there’s a big difference between the "Republican electorate" (i.e. primary) and the "electorate" (i.e. general election): So, Trump leads the polls, especially with the white working class, which is as predicted. But, if only Mitt were there, it would be different (at least in New Hampshire)! And, while everyone is yapping about Trump’s lead, have you looked at Hillary’s? Hillary Clinton is the most trusted to handle terrorism.

Donald Trump has been compared to leaders in the past, today Greg and David talk about Trump’s many parallels with George Wallace, and how the support for a new Wallace has grown.

The myth of the Lost Cause of the Civil War in the South is assumed to be about denying slavery. But in addition to economic slavery we could also add sex slavery.
