I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Republicans in Hell

My brother, the Methodist minister thinks he knows what is going on with the Republican Party.  He believes that those in charge have realized there is no way to stop Donald and that they've come to terms with the fact they're going to lose the 2016 election.  I think he's hit the nail right on the head.  The last thing the GOP wants is a contested election and Cleveland going up in flames.  I suspect they realized a long time ago that the party, as well, was going to end up burning.  Horrendously.  In order to survive as a viable political group they've got to detour through Hell.  There is no way they can stop this from happening.  And, of course, they want to believe they're going to rise from the ashes like the mythical Phoenix.  Me?  I think they're going to cook.

Burning for the truth
No poll shows Trump even close to winning the general election.  With this realization comes another, that stonewalling on Supreme Court nominee Garland is bad.  With a Clinton presidency they're going to be presented with a true rollicking liberal.  They might have to confirm someone of Asian, or Indian decent.  The court might not only become liberal, but more culturally diverse.
And, of course, we know they won't be alone down there, they will have plenty of company.

Of course, that's what happens when all you do is hate everything that's different.  Compromise is a political art and Republicans don't like art.  Anyway, this turn of events, Trump being their nominee does make me wonder what the Koch brothers are doing, after all, Trump pretty much told them to sit on it and spin.


  1. wonder if the koch brothers are supporting HRC? cause I KNOW that despise the rump!

    to the GOP: buh-bye, felicia!

    1. I wouldn't be surprised if they get behind her, especially if it looks like he's going to pull it out of his ass.

  2. There are whispers that many in the GOP are gonna sit this one out and hope they can come back in 2020.
    Uh huh.

    1. That's pretty much what my GOP loyal brother has told me - they've written it off.
