Will the GOP Establishment go Third Party to thwart an "outsider" GOP nominee? Would they throw the election to Hillary? We explore the one-way street entitled attitudes of GOP insiders, who have long-instructed the GOP base on matters of party loyalty. But are they now prepared to bolt if -- just this once -- they don't get their way? We speculate on the altered status of certain anti-Trump Fox News commentators -- George Will, Megyn Kelly and former Mondale speechwriter Charles Krauthammer. Will they be able to recover credibility after such non-nuanced exposure in the 2016 election cycle? Also, we discuss the recent media promotion of Chris Christie and his harsh take on Putin's Russia. We listen to Donald Trump debate Clinton-supporter George Stephanopoulos on the subject of Putin and political correctness. Also, we review the new Star Wars installment, discuss Michel Houellebecq's new novel on the fate of Europe, and offer lines from Shakespeare on the Christmas season. With Christmas music and listener calls.
