GOP Troglodytes Convene in Cave to “Stop Trump”

By | 3/18/2016 Leave a Comment

A cabal of conservative activists met at the Army & Navy club in Washington on Thursday to strategize on how best to retool their efforts in their Stop Trump campaign – an enterprise that has thus far proven about as effective as the War on Drugs.

Led by conservative blogger and radio host Erick Erickson, this gathering of party leaders gnashed their teeth and raised their collective blood pressure for what was purportedly a long, contentious meeting and came up with…well, not a whole lot.

There was vague talk about a potential “Unity Ticket” – the irony of that term being lost on no one but those in attendance, one assumes – that could involve a joint Cruz/Kasich offering, and which was then abandoned as quickly as it had been proposed. And the option of potentially supporting a third party race was also left open. And that, along with a lot of righteous statements about the nobility of their quest, was about it.  

What I did find interesting in all of this, however, was Erickson’s response to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who warned of the danger of tearing the party apart if the nomination was settled by anything other than the will (and votes) of the primary voters. “It is really damn simple,” Erickson shot back, “There’s no reason for you or anyone else to complicate it. Donald Trump’s nomination will give you Hillary Clinton’s presidency.” 

So let me see if I understand this correctly: Because Trump is neither conservative enough nor popular enough, he would lose the general election against Clinton, gifting the White House to the Democrats once more. So the answer is to disenfranchise literally millions of Republican primary voters and insert the establishment’s candidate of choice, thus ensuring a massive turnout of said voters, all eager to endorse the person who stole their votes. 

Yes, it’s pure genius!

And onward they plod, these farcical philistines.
