Today's required reading: "Donald Trump's lunacy reveals core truth about the Republicans"

Today's required reading is "Donald Trump's lunacy reveals core truth about the Republicans" by Johann Hari in The Independent:
Enter stage (far) right Donald Trump, the bewigged billionaire who has filled America with phallic symbols and plastered his name across more surfaces than the average Central Asian dictator. CNN's polling suggests he is the most popular candidate among Republican voters. It's not hard to see why. Trump is every trend in Republican politics over the past 35 years taken to its logical conclusion. He is the Republican id, finally entirely unleashed from all restraint and all reality.
Hari shows how Trumps personifies the values of the contemporary Republican Party. Read more at the Independent.
