Peter Lucas: Taunts come back to haunt mocker in chief

His usage of mockery to demean and belittle his opponents comes straight from one of the men he most admired, the leftist Chicago radical Saul Alinsky, whose Rules for Radicals is the bible of the far left. "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon," Alinsky wrote in his primer for revolutionaries.
