At the Battle of Ashdown the Saxon fyrd were drawn up at the bottom of the hill, with the Vikings holding the crest. King Aethelred was praying in the forest for victory, while his men were losing their nerve. Worried thanes asked Alfred what should be done and he responded by, in Asser’s words, ‘charging up the hill like a wild boar.’ Aethelred or Arthur, gentlemen? With all due respect –and with five weeks to go - it’s time to come out of the forest.

I take it you are referring to Ethelred the Unready described thusly:

King of the English (surnamed The Unready, i.e. without rede or counsel), son of King Edgar by his second wife Aefthryth, was born in 968 or 969 and succeeded to the throne on the murder of his step-brother Edward (the Martyr) in 979. His reign was disastrous from the beginning.

He might also be called the original English appeaser a precursor to Neville Chamberlain and a monarch who would make even the Brack Obama blush by his perennial payment of Danegeld to those very same Vikings.

When one chooses personality over principle one ought at least to choose his historic analogies with care but even the most devoted slave to the man on horseback will sooner or later pay the forfeit for misunderstanding the whole conception of America.

No, Aethelred the Unready is a completely different person who became king a century after Alfred. Now listen up.

Instead of comforting yourself with irrelevant minutiae, get engaged. Instead of pompous theatrics, get involved. Your only value - and mine, and everyone else's - is determined by what you do to advance our common cause. Get moving:

I am doing my part in my way to elect Donald Trump, the same way in good faith in which I tried to elect Bush, Dole, McCain and Romney.

However, the credit for the triumph of November 8 is all yours as far as I am concerned. Equally, the recriminations should they come on November 9 should not be directed to me, my hands are clean.

You quote your Englishman I will quote mine, Churchill:

My warnings over the last six years had been so numerous, so detailed, and were now so terribly vindicated, that no one could 'gainsay' me.

Too late, Levin! You had your chance, but put your own interests ahead of America's

Levin came out and said he now endorses Trump. Levin has always put the interests of America first. He is a wealthy man who could have retired and relaxed long ago.

Levin “endorsed” Trump for one and one reason only. He was getting hit hard in the pocketbook for badmouthing him and not endorsing him.

The problem with that theory is the facts. Levin’s popularity is growing. I’m actually worried for his health. He pursues his defense of liberty by working 20 hours days. He seems to cough more often now. I knew he’d eventually support Trump. Hillary is simply too evil to allow her anywhere near power.

How do you know his popularity is growing? I thought his listenership was down.

Glad I have internet to keep me informed...for now
