On an insane, quasi-journalistic journey like this one it’s impossible not to think of Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail, the rosetta stone of modern political journalism.  Of course Donald Trump is no Richard Nixon.  Nixon was scary but he was predictable. It’s also impossible to escape the image of Bill Murray as Hunter S. Thompson flying the Zoo Plane while tripping in the film Where the Buffalo Roam.  No need to drop acid on this flight: RNC 2016 in Cleveland will be one of the heaviest trips ever.
