On Wednesday night I checked in with Sean Hannity on Fox News. After some momentary discomfort caused by having to announce the name of my cat album, Sean quizzed me about the most recent Republican presidential debate:
Mark Steyn reacted to the fifth GOP debate on "Hannity" tonight, saying that Jeb Bush attacking Donald Trump was a case of too little, too late.
Steyn said the problem is that Bush has burned through a significant portion of his campaign's $100 million war chest, yet he's at three percent in the polls, while Trump's at 41 percent.
"Basically, Jeb Bush is Jim Gilmore with $100 million," Steyn stated. "That's what Trump has done to him."
That's true. On Channel 9 in New Hampshire, there's a Bush ad every ten minutes: That's an expensive way of keeping a guy at 3 per cent in the polls.
Sean and I also addressed the way Trump has re-framed the debate. For the first time, immigration is being discussed in terms of what it does or doesn't do for the people who are already here. Without Trump, the immigration portion of a GOP debate would be Jeb! arguing with Marco about whether the "pathway to citizenship" should be two years or six months.

~As for that cat album of mine that Sean appeared to be aesthetically revolted by, Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats is available from Amazon via CD and download, and also from iTunes and CD Baby. I was very touched by this five-star review from Mike Leavy:
OMC! (Oh my Clawed) this is surprisingly good and wonderfully entertaining.Probably the best album of any genre in America today... Even my cats found it pawsome... Purrhaps you will want to listen to this impressive work while snuggling with that special someone!
On the other hand, if you think all these cat puns are appawling, there are plenty of gifts for non-cat lovers among our SteynOnline Christmas specials.
