BOTH SIDES NOW: AUGUST 21st, 2016

Charles Cooke and Gara Lamarche largely agree that Trump’s new newfound “regrets” could help him “IF he kept it up…but he can’t” says Charles, who as a National Review editor adds that “it’s disgraceful” for Trump to hire a Breitbart alt-right person to run his campaign. Gara chides both Dems and R’s for using psychological terms like “narcissistic sociopath” (re Trump) and “lacks the stability and stamina” (re Clinton) under the so-called “Goldwater Rule” of 1964, although the Host points out that, since truth is a defense to Libel, one characterization is far more accurate. Last, we try to figure out why conservative books — like the four anti-Hillary screeds that are now on top of the NYT non-fiction best-seller list — outsell liberal books.
