GOP Hacks Flee Their Own Convention

The rats are leaving what they seem to think is a sinking ship. The rats are Republicans and the sinking ship is their convention in Cleveland this coming July.

"A number of high-profile Republicans, fearful of a potential melee in Cleveland this summer, are considering skipping the Republican National Convention and campaigning back home instead."
"With the presidential campaign hitting a fever pitch and Donald Trump warning about riots if he's denied the nomination, some House and Senate Republicans tell CNN that it makes more sense to spend time with voters back home rather than be associated with the drama engulfing their party.
But even some leading party stalwarts are planning to skip the convention."

In other words, whatever vile skulduggery the party oligarchs are coming up with to deny Trump the nomination, a lot of lower-level Republicans don't want any part of it. They don't want to get anywhere near what's going to happen at that convention and they don't want their fingerprints on it.

"Asked Tuesday if he'd attend the convention, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush told CNN: "No."

(Okay, now that I can get, seeing as how poor Jeb thought Cleveland in July was going to be his coronation. But what if the RINOs draft him anyway after they steal the nomination from Donald Trump and sodomize Ted Cruz out of whatever deal he thinks he has with them.)

"Unlikely," GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte said when asked if she'd be in Cleveland in the midst of her tough bid for a second term. "I've got a lot of work to do in New Hampshire, I have my own re-election and I'm going to be focusing on my voters in New Hampshire."

Yeah, sure, Kelly. Betcha wild horses couldn't drag you to Cleveland because you know that whatever happens there, it's going to stink to high heaven.

The official line is that "nice" GOPers don't want anything to do with that wicked man Donald Trump. In reality, they don't want the enraged voters of their own districts holding them responsible for what's being done to Trump.
