Kicking off the Crummy Little Podcast is Matt Lewis, author of the forthcoming book Too Dumb to Fail. (The book drops in January 2016 but you can pre-order it here.) Matt talks about how demagogues have dumbed down Republican politics, so you know there’s plenty of discussion about Donald Trump, in case you need some more of that.
- This was recorded just before Trump’s comments about John McCain not being a “real” war hero, but you can catch Matt’s reaction to that here.
- We make reference to “Homer’s Enemy,” the classic episode of The Simpsons featuring Frank Grimes. (In particular, Matt reference’s Homer’s victory in a kids’ power plant design contest.)
- And check out Matt on Twitter, listen to his podcast, read his stuff at the Daily Caller and The Week, heck, just turn on the television, and you’ll see him staring right back at you.
