In Washington, the only opportunities to hear something truthful is when a politician stands too close to a microphone he or she doesn’t know is turned on. Then we get to hear the truth by accident.

Not so with Donald Trump, he says the most controversial and provocative thing without hesitation in a loud voice to the throngs at his rallies. And most Americans find his off-the-cuff manner refreshing and a welcome break from the careful and timid mumbling of official Washington of both parties.

Mr. Trump promises that we will be allowed to wish each other “Merry Christmas!” again in future Decembers and that political correctness will be discarded in favor of his “common sense” approach to governing. No more apologizing, particularly when we believe we are right!
