    but the premise isn't.

    That Frum isn't terrified of the prospect is reprehensible. But that Frum recognizes the possibility is just an understanding of how random our presidential selection truly is.

    Ronald Reagan was a joke in 1965. Fifteen years later he was president, starting the process that would topple the nation.

    All it takes is a frighteningly short list of bad breaks, and we could wind up with one of those dangerous cultists - Rand or Ryan or Cruz - as the president.
