I decided to re-post this earlier post after listening to Susan Sarandon’s comments on the Chris Hayes Show. Surely they will elicit much commentary and reaction – positive and negative – like Charles Blow’s insightful oped article in NYT this morning. I do hope this controversy will loose its steam (and I think it will) as we move beyond the primary season and into the general election. At that point a new reality with an unmistakably sobering and exceedingly dangerous side – Trump or Cruz sitting in the White House – will shape the perceptions of voters. Sam
