A comment reads:
Paleocons are a very highly cultured lot who could never bear to vote for Trump or Cruz even if they were not foreign policy Crazies, no wonder your friend who edits the American Conservative has already voted for Sanders. You have been saying for years they would all become Dems and get on with it. It's happening.
Another, which I assume is by the same person, reads:
Like your mate the editor of the American Conservative voting for Bernie Sanders in Virginia and no doubt planning to do so again in November because Trump and Cruz are unconscionable to anyone as highly cultured as a paleocon. Foreign policy non-Crazies can hope for a hearing from Sanders for the first time since the late Eighties and serious economists are getting a hearing from Corbyn and McDonnell for the first time since the early Eighties.
Virginia has open primaries, so we cannot yet say that The American Conservative is edited by a registered Democrat. Give it time, though.
The point about culture is well made. Trump's speeches show a middle school reading age, and Cruz is scarcely better-read or more articulate. They and the Paleo Boys would have nothing to talk about. Not just a lot to disagree on. Nothing to talk about.
In similar fashion, Osborne actively refuses to ask economists anything, because he thinks that he knows it all. That is a class thing where he and his party are concerned. But the New Labour lot, as was, do not even that excuse.
