We’re All Stars Now, In This Dope’s Show | July 18, 2016

Trump fans are crowing over the latest “Never Trump” delegate fight being voted down by the Rules Committee. The problem is that there was even a fight in the first place. I imagine if this were a revolt by, say, Cruz opponents, the RNC would invent a second set of rule books to allow a delegate conscience clause.

It’s clear that the Republican Establishment Plan B (or C, or maybe W) is to get out of the way of the runaway train and disparage the irrational exuberance of the Tea Party mentality that lost the election for the GOP in spectacular fashion when Hillary beats Trump. There’s a plan if Trump wins, but it mostly involves co-opting his administration or feeding him to the Democrats.

Much like Trump’s promises over a Vice President, policy speeches or veterans’ donations, the convention plan was told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Except for the rapid pace of the speeches, the only “news” was getting Antonio Sabato Jr. and Scott Baio. Both had shows on VH-1, so they know how to fake reality.

I have to say, even watching the convention on MSNBC has only left me with occasional fist clenching. I could care less if Hillary beats Trump. I am only marginally interested in Trump winning, especially given his screw you attitude to anyone who thinks he sucks, but might vote for him as an alternative to Clinton. This must be what it’s like to watch a game where you don’t like either team.
