The basic framework for both the Democratic as well as the Republican national conventions was actually laid all the way back in February, although nobody knew it at the time. But one decision made back in February forever changed the basic circumstances from which the logic for all future decisions on both sides woukd be made. […]
Oh, dear Lord. And here I thought that the resumption of these daily briefings would constitute the same waste of time as the originals. But I had forgotten all of the little things that you have to watch for that make them so amusing. For starters, obviously El Pendejo Presidente is still buying his Fixodent in 55 gallon drums. His upper plate was all over the place, and he slobbered through his statement sounding for all the world like am obscene phone caller. And then he tossed out enough fertilizer for Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas combined. He said that the GOP had secured $105 billion in additional funding for schools to assist them in reopening. Then came the McGuffin. The schools would only get the money if they opened for in school teaching. If schools didn’t open for students, no cashola. Instead, the money would go to the parents instead, to send their children to alternate private, charter, or religious schools, or for in home tutoring. Who the hell is he trying to kid? The Trump administration can’t even set up effective coronavirus testing in 6 months, and they’ll divvy up $105 billion and get it to millions of parents in less than a month? Color me skeptical. But the best part was when he talked convention. He said that his political team had come to him that day, with the biggest, most beautiful, bad ass convention of all time. But because Trump is a man of the people, by the people, and for the people, he called the whole damn thing off. His planners were stunned, but he remained resolute. Instead, the delegates will show up in Charlotte as scheduled, to fulfill the mechanics of nominating Trump, and they’ll have alternate pageantry online and broadcast instead. Every time I think that Trump can’t possibly fuck up any worse, he continues to amaze. I swear, the dude is like a one man orgy. If my memory serves me correctly, I believe that the Democrats will hold their convention first, with the GOP going the next week. Just think about this for a moment. More than three months ago, the Biden campaign and the DNC got together and decided that for safety’s sake, they would forego a traditional convention, and instead work solely online and through the mainstream media. They have had their best minds and planners working solely on this concept for the last three months. You can rest assured that the finished product will be smooth, slick, polished, uplifting, and effective. Trump’s campaign has spent the last three months working on a balls to the wall, live convention, and the coronavirus be damned. They started in Charlotte, then threw a grenade in the room by moving the nomination declaration and acceptance speech to Jacksonville. Florida. And now, in less than a month, they are going to slap together a digital, online, and broadcast mishmash of something. Maybe they can get the guy who used to direct The Apprentice to handle the whole thing. But there is one upside. Scott Baio, Kid Rock, and Ted Nugent should feel right at home. Those losers have been performing in front of crowds of 100 or less for years now. I cannot tell you how much I’m looking forward to this. After all, the convention heralds […]
