I haven't been watching the GOP Convention, but I do plan on buying the DVD collection once it's over. I think my grandkids - or their grandkids - would enjoy watching the highly unprofessional antics that are passing for the official functioning of a major political party - while experiencing the stench of America's underbelly at the start of the twenty-first century. To say that the toxic sludge being generated in Cleveland this week by the once grand old party is in anyway representative of basic American values - or even Christian values - is as laughable as it is sad.
Highlights of the week include comedian Steven Colbert somehow making his way to the podium and high-jacking the microphone, Melania Trump giving a speech plagiarized from Michelle Obama - a woman Republicans instinctively hate, and Donald Trump, Jr, also giving a speech that was, at least in part, lifted from another source.
Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, a man who is himself squarely in the gun sights of federal prosecutors, gave a raucous speech in which he "indicted" Hillary Clinton on various GOP fantasies, and then beamed down upon the little people as they chanted in reply, "Lock her up! Lock her up!" Christie was squealing and oinking with delight as he rolled around in his own crap that night, but his good humor came to an end last night when Ted Cruz gave his prime time address. Cruz not only neglected to endorse Trump, but he also ended his vision of America - and 2020 campaign launch - by telling Republicans they should vote their conscience. Cruz was booed from the stage, and his Goldman-Sachs wife had to be hustled out of the arena by security.
You're off to a grand start on 2020, Ted. BTW, you of all people should know that Republicans have no conscience to vote.
The whole Republican Convention has run off the rails and over a cliff. It is too bizarre for any sort of logical summation in a blog posting. That's why I'm waiting for the as-seen-on-TV DVD of the whole circus. Trump undoubtedly owns all the rights, and he will make a killing peddling his product to America's suckers, pigs, and bimbos - and making money was, after all, his primary motivation for running.
Sarah Palin was right all along.
Cash in, Donald. Cash in!
