Columnist Monica Crowley (who used to work for another street-fighter, Richard Nixon) has a new article in the Washington Times on Donald Trump as the GOP's much-needed street-fighter.

He even placed second in Iowa, an evangelical-heavy state that conventional wisdom suggested would never have even considered the New York showman in the first place.We can credit (or blame, depending upon your point-of-view) the establishment wimps of the Republican Party for the rise of street-fighters Trump and, to a degree, Sen. Ted Cruz. By not standing up to Obama and the Democrats, they have angered the rank-in-file voters.
