It’s been four years since I turned in the manuscript for my cult classic book about the serious challenges facing the Republican Party, Too Dumb to Fail. A lot has changed since then, so I thought it might be fun to revisit the book and see what stands the test of time (and what doesn’t). During this conversation with Chris Novembrino’s “Don’t Worry About The Government” podcast, we look back at Too Dumb to Fail to see how relevant it still is today.
