Ben Carson didn’t hold back Monday morning describing the direction he sees the United States going.“America right now is like a cruise ship that is about to go off of Niagara Falls with tremendous carnage and death,” the former GOP presidential candidate warned during a Memorial Day appearance on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”The retired neurosurgeon’s prescription for a country headed off a cliff?
The comparison was inflammatory, to say the least. Former Gov. William F. Weld of Massachusetts equated Donald J. Trump’s immigration plan with Kristallnacht, the night of horror in 1938 when rampaging Nazis smashed Jewish homes and businesses in Germany and killed scores of Jews.
But if it was a provocative analogy, it was not a lonely one.
Brady Toensing is a partner in the law firm, diGenova & Toensing, in Vermont. He's also vice chair of the Vermont Republican Party. Now, taken separately, both positions are relatively harmless. In combination? Well, I leave that to the reader to decide.
Last week Toensing sent letters, on legal letterhead no less, to both the United States Attorney for the District of Vermont, and to Senator Bernie Sanders.

Right-wing hate radio has seen a listener bump since Donald Trump became the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party. Even Rush Limbaugh has more listeners these days, but he's not getting any more revenue for it.
Why? Because advertisers won't touch him with a ten-foot pole. They won't touch him because they don't want to be associated with his hate speech, and haven't wanted to since he ranted against Sandra Fluke back in 2012.
I think it's interesting that in this segment with Brian Stelter and Ethan Epstein, both of them are surprised that Rushbo's misogynist outburst toward Fluke still has a reach today.
