Much of America isn’t familiar with the name Gordon Hinckley. The former leader of the LDS Church died many years ago and just shy of his 100th birthday. On the other hand many Americans do know the name John Hinckley. He was the man who tried killing President Reagan 35-years-ago this month. This morning Mitt Romney stood before a wall at a campus in Salt Lake City and a sign over his shoulder reminded you he was denouncing Donald Trump while at the Hinckley Institute. Is there something Freudian in the thinking of the Republican establishment? I caught it while on-air and as I looked up at the TV monitor on the studio wall.

It raises the question about the GOP Brahmins. Just how steep is their learning curve?
