600: Will I Know Anyone at This Party?

Oct 28, 2016
Right now lots of Republicans feel like they don’t recognize their own party. Like a Minnesota congressman who’s confused when the residents in his district, people he’s known for years, start calling for a ban on Muslims moving to their town.
Correction: In the original feed of this week’s show we identified Ricochet host and National Review columnist James Lileks as a Trump supporter. He’s not. This has been fixed. (The third Ricochet host, Peter Robinson, insists that Trump isn't as bad as Hillary—but even he is struggling with whether to vote for Trump or write in someone else.)

Every day until Election Day, we'll have a new Chris Ware & John Kuramoto animation. See them all.

    Another tragic figure this year is the head of the Republican National Comittee Reince Priebus, who has the job of holding the whole party together. A grueling and thankless job, this year. We asked Broadway composer Michael Friedman – who did a political musical called Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson – to imagine what Priebus might be thinking but not expressing publicly. John Ellison Conlee sings the part of Reince Priebus.
