Too bad they’re not playing basketball but politics. This is close to the vibe I see everywhere across Republican websites. From Ace of Spades: “So, Who Is the GOP Going to Install as Its Nominee Instead of Trump?” First he says this:
Let me explain my entire political raison d’etre:
BEAT HILLARY CLINTON.
That’s it. That’s the ballgame.
But then he say this about the leadership of the Republican Party:
I happen to think the White Upper Middle Professional Class is silly and overproud — the status conscious bourgeoisie who are a bit too fashionable and frivolous in their political passions.
They’re just not good in a fight. They back down too quickly from the left’s threat of reducing their social status.
Yet the fact is, you can’t win an election without them. This group, which isn’t only white, but is Super White, is a core group of any GOP coalition. Including the losing ones, even.
He thinks they won’t allow Trump to be the nominee. Trump’s task was not just to win the votes but to make himself acceptable to the while upper middle class leaders of the party.
I do think the GOP is actually gearing up to do something drastic in three weeks.
I think all the shrieking you’re seeing right now is part of the battlespace preparation to prepare for that moment.
To justify it, to defend it. To show: “We had no other choice.”
To say, “We tried working with him. You saw how hard we tried working for him! But he’s just impossible. He’s an animal, and we can’t do anything to educate him.”
The question I’m asking myself isn’t whether they’ll do this (if Trump keeps sinking in the polls, and stinking up the reputation of the Upper Middle Class Professionals that make up the high ranks of the party, they will), but who they’ll replace him with.
The word is Paul Ryan. He denies that. He denies a lot of things.
I think he’s a sneaky little rat who would be flattered by it, and flattered by it, he’d leap at it.
I’d go berserk if they tried that, personally. I think a lot of people would. He’s already a proven electoral loser — he got beaten by the Imbecile Joe Biden in a debate, for god’s sake — but they may try it anyway.
And so we shall see. There are many who are walking away. A random sample from today:
You get the idea. Meanwhile, Ann Coulter is not really surprised in spite of what the headline might make you think: Stunning New Development!!! Media Calls Trump Racist.
The effrontery of this double standard is so blinding, that the only way liberals can bluff their way through it is with indignation. DO I HEAR YOU RIGHT? ARE YOU SAYING A JUDGE’S ETHNICITY COULD INFLUENCE HIS DECISIONS? (Please, please, please don’t bring up everything we’ve said about white judges and juries for the past four decades.)
They’re betting they can intimidate Republicans — and boy, are they right!
The entire Republican Brain Trust has joined the media in their denunciations of Trump for his crazy idea that anyone other than white men can be biased. That’s right, Wolf, I don’t have any common sense. Would it help if the GOP donated to Hillary?
