      Happy dance. So there was a kind of “revolution” after all. Nice job, ‘merica!

      Bill Whittle, right after Obama got elected for a second time, claimed that the next Republican President would have to be a media personality and a master of media manipulation. Fact check: True.

      Now the question is, will Trump be the next media savy Reagan or media savy Schwarzenegger?

      Good column. Except the world actually won. At least the country did.

      A little of my faith in Americans is restored because they were able to look passed the media and realize what was best for them.
