A smidgen of perspective on Mr. Trump.

The groupthink is so severe in certain social circles (see Prof. Scott Sumner's unhinged posts on Trump) that it is considered perfectly reasonable to equate an accomplished real estate developer who has been married or at least conjoined to a woman for 38 of the last 40 years and has five children to a lifelong and childless bachelor whose employment history between the ages of 18 and 43 begins and ends with about five years of military service; it is considered reasonable to equate a man who never hid his fanaticism with a businessman for whom politicians are fungible.
