I am really starting to hate these guys.


Inside the GOP’s Shadow Convention
Banking on an Election Day loss, the party’s elders and elite lay the foundation to rebuild post-Trump.

It was mid-April when as many as 1,000 alumni of the most recent Republican administration descended on Dallas for a staff reunion to reminisce about sunnier times. Former President George W. Bush autographed cowboy hats, Vice President Dick Cheney snapped selfies and First Lady Laura Bush chatted up the crowd. The memories were happy; the fajitas were plentiful.

When it came to talk of 2016, though, the mood was grim. The Republican primary had just narrowed to essentially two choices, each anathema to these card-carrying members of the GOP establishment: Ted Cruz and, even more egregiously, Donald Trump.

But few were as dark about the Republican Party’s future as former President Bush himself. In a more intimate moment during the reunion, surrounded by a smaller clutch of former aides and advisers, Bush weighed in with an assessment so foreboding that some who relayed it could not discern if it was gallows humor or blunt realpolitik.

“I’m worried,” Bush told them, “that I will be the last Republican president.”

And if Obama was the last Democrat president too that would be like winning the lottery twice.

But it is the rise of Trump’s divisive style and embrace of white resentment politics—anchored by proposals for a wall to keep Mexicans out, an immigration ban preventing Muslims from coming in and talk of cheating by China and ripping up trade deals—that has many of the Republican Party’s elders, privately and publicly, predicting defeat this fall at the hands of a diversifying electorate and fretting about long-term fallout.

In interviews with more than 40 of the Republican Party’s leading strategists, lawmakers, fundraisers and donors, a common thread has emerged heading into the general election: Win or lose in November (and more expect to lose than not), they fear that Trump’s overheated and racialized rhetoric could irreparably poison the GOP brand among the fastest-growing demographic groups in America.

And so, to an almost unprecedented extent, as the 50,000 Republican activists, officials and media pour into Cleveland this week, there is something of a convention within the convention. Many of these GOP titans—the intellectual and financial pillars of the party and its possible future elected leaders—are plotting a parallel course.

In delegation breakfasts, private hotel suites and steakhouses across Cleveland—and farther afield for those, like Jeb Bush and his family, who are skipping the festivities—they are laying the foundations for the next political battles they believe can actually be won: first, to preserve the GOP majorities in the House and Senate this fall, then to save the Republican Party itself.

In the immortal words of William J. Lepetomane,

“We’ve gotta protect our phony baloney jobs!”

The problem isn’t that these dicks are not political survivalists who are merely building bomb shelters and stocking them with supplies so they can wait out a nuclear winter and then restart civilization.


These fuckers are a death cult that wants to purge the world in nuclear fire so they can be the only survivors.

They are trying to not-so-covertly undermine and sabotage Donald Trump.  Then when he loses they can say “We told you so!’ and bully his supporters back into line.

Not gonna happen.  If Trump loses his supporters will not meekly return to the fold. This is especially true if they perceive that Trump lost because of the GOPe. I don’t know where they all will go, but it won’t be back into the loving arms of the Republican party.

If the GOPe wants to eventually return to power they need to accept defeat and join with Trump to oppose Hillary.

    These fuckers are stupid. They think they can purge their own base (non-elite white people) and replace them by seducing the Democrat base (non-whites). But non-elite whites are the largest single demographic and the GOPe will never win a bidding war with the Democrats for the affections of blacks and Hispanics.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      If the GOPe moves left, the Democrats will move farther left.

    • jay352 says:

      As Whiny baby JEB said” We don’t need the base to win” BTW, how did that work out for him?

    • Jadzia says:

      And how are they doing this? By trying to put the, um, elite white people (who lost the last 2 elections) back in charge. It’s like eleven dimensions of stupid.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        The voters had several GOPe candidates to choose from and rejected them all. The CW in the GOPe was there were too many options and they split the vote, allowing Trump to win.

        But as the field narrowed Trump did even better.

    • lyn says:

      The GOP backstabbers will find out how unpopular they are if Trump loses.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        If Trump voters leave the GOP the remains will be about the size of the Green and Libertarian parties.

        • swanspirit says:

          That is what the Democrats have wanted all along, the demise of the Republican party. Trump is scaring the crap out of them because he has rebuilt the party from the ground up.The GOPe are the walking dead. They are too stupid to realize it.

      • DeniseVB says:

        They were blamed for McCain (RINO!) and Romney (MORMON!) losses too. Potted plants could have beat Obama in 08 and 12. Something stinks with the GOPe.

        Adjusting tinfoil hat. I’m at the part of the Crisis of Character book about when the SS guys had to appear before the grand jury, they’d get a visit from Bill Clinton asking them how their wife and kids were. The author said that sent shivers down their spines.

        Since the book was published, Bill met Loretta Lynch on a tarmac and asked about her grandkids. Hmmm, hmmm,hmmm ?

        • elliesmom says:

          I’m about a quarter of the way through the book, and it hasn’t caught fire with me yet. I always finish a book when I start one, but this one has been pretty easy to put down so far. Does it pick up somewhere along the way?

          • DeniseVB says:

            I have Rosalynn Carter’s memoir under Gary Byrne’s on my night stand , coincidence? Methinks so in that “holy szzzzh^t” sort of way. Keep reading….it does get better.😉

    I’m almost done marathoning Stranger Things on Netflix

    • mothy67 says:

      Its hard to think of Winona Ryder as an adult.

        • mothy67 says:

          She still can’t act. How does something like that happen. She is Timothy Leary’s god daughter.

          • votermom says:

            I really hope there’s a season 2 of Stranger Things! Great show.

          • mothy67 says:

            Netfix kinda needs to release a show once a month. I dropped Hbo after GoT ended. The original stuff is very biased. Julianne Moore as Palin no thanks. House of Cards was why I got hooked. Eight episodes of a show is fun it saves me money. I make blts with cheese crawl into bed and escape. I step out my door and I don’t know where money goes. Netflix gets big stars to do limited series. Movie stars participate. Would Jane Fonda risk a sitcom that might be canned after two weeks? I had to watch Sense8 150 billion times before I understood it. I think netfix, prime youtube Red might go to far. The shows are adult but do I have to see flagrant gay sex on every show. I get just as bored when its straight. If I want to watch porn. I am an adult with several computers and a debit card. I’ll rent porn.

        • Myiq2xu™ says:

          She peaked too early. She did Beetlejuice and Mermaids and Heathers, then it all went downhill from there.

          • mothy67 says:

            Edward Scissor Hands. I think she crashed with Age of Innocence and then that wierd Alien movie.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Edward Scissorhands was my fav Winona movie. Her icky boyfriend was that sweet Rusty from the original “Vacation” movie.

            Most of that Brat Pack generation of young stars put out some pretty good, now classic, movies.

    Betty Crackers:

    I’ve come to dislike Trump’s adult children almost as much as I abhor their despicable father. I realize it isn’t their fault that they are trophy-wife crotch-fruit sired by a narcissistic con man. And as the daughter of a gentleman with appalling political views, I do understand keeping filial affection and partisan affinity separate. But the Trumplings are actively trying to foist their buffoonish oaf of a father off on the rest of us, so fuck them.

    Betty was a Rumproaster until that place dried up. Now she’s a Buffoon.

    “Papa John’s shares, which jumped over 3% on Wednesday, are up 23.0% over the past three months.

    If this new “pizza indicator” is correct, violence in America is about to get much worse.”

    I would like to order two large mushroom and sausage pizzas, a case of 5.56mm Green Tip, a case of 9mm hollow points and two Diet Cokes.

  7. DeniseVB says:

    I heard on the news that Ted Cruz submitted his speech to the Trump peeps, and they are pleased.

    I dunno, I saw Cruz speak for 30 minutes in last year. Without a prompter or notes and in front of the podium. Do we trust him ?

    • Dora says:

      Absolutely not!

      BTW, Tammy Bruce reported earlier that Cruz wants a seat on SCOTUS. Don’t know where she got her information or whether or not it’s true.

      • Elliott says:

        Absolutely not. He and Heidi are globalist shills. He is fine being a pariah in the Senate for as long as he can get elected. He should of thought of a Supreme Court seat as an exit but decided to show his ass and lose. Besides we aren’t even positive he is a citizen.

        • blowme0bama says:

          No, I think he would be an outstanding Justice. I’m very confident he would trim federal overreach.

          • Jadzia says:

            I think he would be a great justice. I also think that with the bridges he seems to have burned in the Senate, he could be unconfirmable.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      Cruz is no dummy. If he pulls some shady shit he’s toast.

      The smart move is to position himself as a potential successor to Trump. Win or lose, Trump voters will be looking for a new leader in 4-8 years.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        Of course the really smart move would have been to maintain the unofficial non-aggression pact Cruz had early in the primaries. Lose gracefully but finish in second. If he had done that he would be the VP nominee right now.

        Cruz got greedy. This was not his year.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I hope so🙂

  8. DeniseVB says:

    Excellent run down on the Leslie Jones twitter meltdown that led to Milo being the first conservative gay man to be thrown off the twitter building. (yes, I stole that from a meme which showed an actual gay man being tossed off a building by two twitter birds.)

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I never heard of any of the people involved with that movie and I swore it was released last winter because they have been whining about people not appreciating their supposed work of art for months. The original was a lucky lighting in the bottle strike that was ignited by a group of pros who had collaborated previously. Trying to recreate such a one off success is hard enough with the right crew in front of and behind the camera. It has become painfully clear that this cast and crew have no clue. And apparently minimal talent. But are as obnoxious and nasty as the GOPes and the Hillbots combined.

  9. DeniseVB says:

    Mark Dice on Milo ….

  10. Mt.Laurel says:

    Anyone flying Southwest might want to check in. Evidently they have grounded all flights – supposedly due to a computer error.

  11. driguana says:

    I can’t believe that I came out of voter hibernation to vote for Romney! What a pussy! Trump has created a new Republican Party and they can’t deal with it. Maybe after Trump is elected he’ll give new name to his party and give the old tired Republican Party back to Mitt and Ted and John and the rest of the losers.

        Absolutely. He’s a bottom feeder, as are his diehard supporters.

      • Venus says:

        Hey, blind man: Trump just gave Cruz the rope and he not only hung himself, he lit himself on fire & then hung himself.

        • swanspirit says:

          Ted Cruz just destroyed his future. Stupid piece of useless garbage .

        • Somebody says:

          Yes he did, what an asshole. He held a rally earlier, which I don’t think a losing candidate has ever done before. He announces he plans to run in 4 years no matter the outcome of this election. Then after calling out elected officials for not keeping their word he refuses to keep his.

          Cruz squandered his chance tonight. He stood up there and gave a campaign speech. He proved himself to be small, self centered and a sore loser.

        • 1539days says:

          So, did Trump approve the speech or not? It took two days to sort out the Melania ghost writer story.

          • Venus says:

            Ha ha! Still falling for all the stupid media shit, huh? There was no fucking “story” — except for the idiots.

    • dm says:

      So, Cruz tells the audience to show up in November and vote their “conscience”…everytime I hear/read that the translation is voting for Johnson…so, does that mean Ted is going to vote for Johnson too? What a dick…he says he wants to run in 2020, so why would he not endorse the nominee – who won, the numbers vastly greater than what he received…be the bigger man, take it on that very large chin…but no, he had to be a dick…again.

      I would hate to be in the room when Ciccinelli realizes he was a sacrificial pig for the GOPe with all his maneuvering over the past weeks. This was my favorite headline:
      Ken Cuccinelli Has Temper Tantrum at Republican National Convention

      It is apparent that the GOPe wants HIllary to win and they will just wait their turn for 2020 and we go on as before. Getting Obama in 8 years earlier than they hoped set up the faster change over to global because no one would call that passer out on his crap.

      Nixon is laughing from beyond. They are making him look good. And Carter is rubbing his hands with glee because if Hillary succeeds he moves to third worst president while HER and BOO duke it out for second.

    Watched the whole evening. Pretty good all in all. Ted Cruz absolutely ended his pathetic career. What a creepy piece of shit he turned out to be. I called it early. I immediately took a disliking to Ted Cruz. Which saved me a lot of time.

    I ended Raccoon Welfare a few months ago, partly because of the cost and partly because of the possums. I originally started with 1 raccoon a couple years ago, and that was only in the Spring and Summer. By the time I canceled the program I had 10-20 moochers a night and I was buying 20 lbs of cat food each week. Now I only feed my cats and Larry, a semi-feral orange cat who I feed on the ledge outside my kitchen window.

    Tonight about 1 hour before sunset I saw a raccoon in my garage and I chased it off. A little bit later it came back and it was up on the kitchen ledge finishing off the dry food Larry didn’t eat. I was about to chase it off when I noticed that it had large nipples hanging down. I also noticed that it looked rather skinny for a raccoon.

    It was obviously a mama raccoon with babies in the nest. So I fed her.

    Then I told her she better not bring back any friends next time.

    • DandyTIger says:

      When I lived in California, raccoon’s would hang out on the corner, standing in groups, smoking cigarettes. If you walked by they whistled and taunted you. True story.

    • Jadzia says:

      My raccoon story, featuring me being a stupid idiotic moron. When we lived in Eugene, our house was in one of these tiny developments that was carved out of a very thick patch of woods. My lot was very steep and very wooded (and it later turned out that the previous owner had “forgotten” to disclose that it was in a conservation zone and I wasn’t allowed to do anything that would make the yard useable, but I digress). Very steep, very wooded, with the house at the tippy top. The kitchen was on the “top” floor of the house, and led out onto a big deck that kind of hovered about 40 feet above the ground, surrounded by said trees.

      Do you have that picture in your mind? Okay, now picture this: Eugene, Christmas Eve 2008 after all the repairmen have closed up their shops for Christmas. All the food for the Christmas feast, including a homemade buche de noel, was in the refrigerator. Which broke.

      Like a very smart person, I thought, “Well, it is pretty darn cold, so once the refrigerator starts to warm up, I’ll just put all the food, including THE HAM AND TURKEY, out on the deck!”

      It was a merry, merry Christmas indeed for the pack of raccoons that immediately descended from the trees. What the fuck was I thinking?

      Turns out that my strict, old-fashioned French in-laws, who were visiting, didn’t find the idea of Christmas pizza as funny as I did.

      • Somebody says:

        Ah, how long had you been married? So did the little bastards wait until you put out the full spread before descending on it?

        Oh well that was one Christmas you and your family will never forget. If you were related to me the next Christmas I would have hunted high and low to find a raccoon ornament for you, LOL!

  45. Venus says:

    And then, Cruz delivered those fateful words: “Vote your conscience.”

    The boos and interruptions never ceased after that, with chants of “We want Trump!”

    He concluded with a call to unity: “The case we have to make to the American people … is to commit to each of them that we will defend freedom and be faithful to the Constitution.”

    But Cruz left the stage having divided the party.

    Update: A Cruz supporter told Breitbart News: “I think it was entirely selfish. I think he’s ruined his future. Everybody was right about him. It’s a character thing.”

    Reactions were even harsher behind the scenes. Dana Bash of CNN reports that Cruz entered a donor suite at the arena after the speech, and was told, to his face, that he was a “disgrace.” One man was so angry at Cruz that he had to be “physically restrained,” and Heidi Cruz had to be escorted from the convention floor because of heckling by Trump delegates.

    Ha ha! Best convention ever. Cruz managed to unite the party in hatred of Lyin’ Ted Cruz.
    Except of course for the bitter, delusional dead enders. They’ll never “get it” — and really need to just go fuck themselves.

    • Jadzia says:

      People need to leave Heidi Cruz alone, though. Whatever her sins may be, she’s married to Ted Cruz, and I think that’s punishment enough.

      • Myiq2xu™ says:

        I agree, but TC was a fool to put her in harm’s way.

        • Jadzia says:

          I think I’m missing some context here–did he do something to her other than just having her be there like a normal political wife? Of course, I don’t really disagree that if he KNEW he was going to go out there and be a provocateur, the better thing would have been to say honey, you don’t need to be here for this one.

          • Myiq2xu™ says:

            I have watched the video of her leaving and I didn’t see anyone threatening her or saying anything inappropriate. The were yelling at her husband, but not necessarily at her.
