    Virtually every prominent mover and shaker in talk radio gathered at Hofstra University on Long Island, N.Y., yesterday for the Talkers 2016: Bridging the Generations conference. On stage, radio hosts and industry experts spoke of the disruption in the industry the challenges and opportunities brought on by the technical innovation sweeping every facet of communications. In the halls, I asked a few famous talkers about the astounding disruption of this years presidential election, in which modern politics has been turned on its head.

    Donald Trumps coronation as the GOP nominee will present plenty of opportunities for Republican amnesia and short-sightedness. The easiest thing to do, if youre a conservative Republican, is to dismiss Trump as an aberration, as if his candidacy emerged out of a whirlwind. But thats the work of revisionist historians, not honest observers of the last decade of Republican politics. Consider this recent tweet by Meghan McCain, the daughter of John McCain and now a commentator for Fox News: I hope history remembers those who gave up their conservative principles for the cult of personality and celebrity. And those who...

    If you think the Trump campaign is full of amateurs, you are correct. Donald Trumps social media director Dan Scavino, eager to prove that his boss was an expert on tax reform, posted a link to an appearance Trump made in 1991 before the House Budget Committee: Theres one problem: in his testimony, not only did Trump bash Ronald Reagans Tax Reform Act of 1986, calling it a catastrophe and saying income taxes should be raised to increase investment in real estate, but Trump actually compared the United States to the Soviet Union. Why, youd almost think Trump is a...

    On March 1, the Colorado Republican party prepared for 60,000 voters to arrive at nearly 3,000 precinct-caucus sites across the state. Those voters would select men and women to attend the partys county assemblies and congressional district conventions, in the first step of a multi-part process that determined 34 of Colorados 37 delegates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. To hear Donald Trump and his fans tell it, those tens of thousands of Republicans never arrived, never made their choices, and never had the chance to play a role in selecting the partys delegates.

    Donald Trump has repeatedly labeled his political opponents liars. He dubbed Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) Lyin' Ted when it became clear that Cruz was a serious rival for his nomination; he called Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) an "even bigger liar" than Cruz. He dubbed Dr. Ben Carson a "pathological liar" and said former Florida Governor Jeb Bush's lies were almost as bad as Cruz's. Trump has termed virtually every mildly adversarial media member a liar, too. But there's only one truly massive liar in this race: Donald Trump. When Politico attempted to measure how many lies Trump told over the...

    Donald Trump is right: The system is rigged. Its rigged in favor of front-runners. Thats why Trump, who is leading the Republican nominating contest, has a larger percentage of delegates (46 percent) than of votes (37 percent). Unsurprisingly, Trump never mentions when the rules have helped him. He much prefers to whine and peddle conspiracy theories when they dont. Trumps latest tantrum is over Colorado, where Ted Cruz just swept all 34 of the states available delegates. Trump is calling the results totally unfair and on Twitter he asked: How is it possible that the people of the great State...

    You see, contrary to the impression that many people have been left with over the past couple of days, Colorados traditional caucus-night poll had never been a binding, primary-like election. Thats not how it worked. It was a simple straw-poll nothing more, nothing less. It wasnt the process used to distribute delegates to the candidates. The nomination procedure in this state has been driven by the election of representatives for over a hundred years (except for from 1992 to 2002). It starts with grassroots caucus attendees from local precincts voting on congressional-district delegates (their neighbors) to represent them, and...

Speaking for about an hour Sunday in Rochester, N.Y., Trump recited statistics about the area's loss of manufacturing jobs and economic hardship in recent years. He reiterated his desire to tax goods sold by companies once based in the United States that moved away to find cheaper labor. The plan has been widely panned by economic experts.

Which means, of course, that it's all been an act and, once nominated, he'll be "catering" to the Democrats. Face it, Trumpsters, if Jeb Bush or Mitt Romney had said this, you'd know exactly what it meant. If Cruz or Kasich said this, you'd be wagging your fingers and hammering their supporters over it.

Ted Cruz, in contrast, leads Clinton 46 to 45 percent. Ex-candidate Marco Rubio and splinter candidate John Kasich have been running even better.

    For seven months, Republicans -- myself included -- have argued against the data. The data showed that Donald Trump would be a viable candidate. Many of us presumed he would eventually fade. Many of us presumed he would eventually burn out his supporters with his gaffes, waffling and walk backs. What many of us misunderstood was Republican voter anger. There are a lot of angry people out there and they are flocking to Donald Trump. They have good reason to be angry. Washington politicians, particularly Republicans, have broken promise after promise. People in Washington seem to be doing quite well...

    -snip- Another person who unequivocally does not support Trump and his endorses is Meghan McCain. Naturally, she has come out as a supporter of Cruz only a few hours after Fiorinas announcement. On Your World with Neil Cavuto, McCain responded to the hosts question about the possible impact of Neil Bushs recent support of Cruz by saying that she found it much less important than Fiorinas. I was a huge, huge Carly Fiorina fan and supporer, she said, insisting that she has the capacity to get a lot of young, conservative women taking a second look at Ted Cruz. Then,...

    As the field of Republican candidates continues to narrow, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas is starting to pick up some important endorsements. Carly Fiorina, a former presidential candidate and critic of the current front runner, Donald Trump, gave Cruz her nod, the New York Times reported on Wednesday. Other endorsers include radio talk show host Mark Levin and, most curiously, Meghan McCain, the daughter of Sen. John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential candidate and one of Cruzs most bitter enemies in the Senate. Sen. McCain once called Cruz a wacko bird.

    How did you spend your President’s Day evening? I did a couple of things I haven’t done in a long time. First I watched The Five where Meghan McCain was filling in for Dana Perino. Before you say anything let me say, she was actually a refreshing change of pace and somebody has been giving that girl some serious coaching and training. It’s going to be hard to overcome her dingbat Valley Girl persona, butt I will say: she is evolving in the right direction. If Eric Bolling were to get some training from Meghan’s coach and they booted Juan...

    For Meghan McCain, Sarah Palin's endorsement of Donald Trump was difficult to watch. -snip- Meghan McCain, who said that she has still not spoken with Palin since 2008, remarked of the former vice-presidential candidate's endorsement speech, "This is not my style of politics, using sort of vulgar language." During her endorsement speech, Palin declared that Trump would "kick ISIS ass."

    Jeb Bush’s imploding presidential candidacy sparked an explosive debate among Fox News hosts on “The Five” this week. Tempers began to flare after Meghan McCain, the daughter of Arizona senator and former presidential candidate John McCain, argued that while Bush is flawed candidate much of the blame for his sagging poll numbers could be attributed to him having “bad people around him.” Being the “only person that has been on a campaign that imploded and came back from the dead” she believes Bush can make a comeback. “He needs to clean house with his staff,” she said before her co-host...

    Jeb Bush‘s campaign isn’t doing very well right now. The candidate himself has had to say this week that his own campaign is “not on life support.” The hosts of Fox News’ The Five tried to diagnose exactly what Bush is doing wrong (that now-infamous debate exchange with Marco Rubio certainly factored into it). Meghan McCain spoke up and said, “As the only person that’s been on a campaign that imploded and then came back from the dead… he needs to clean house with his staff!” Bollig pushed back on that being the problem, but McCain insisted that she knows...
