I love this juxtaposition:
On Politico today,
With the convention less than a month away, POLITICO contacted more than 50 prominent governors, senators and House members to gauge their interest in speaking. Only a few said they were open to it, and everyone else said they weren’t planning on it, didn’t want to, or weren’t going to Cleveland at all — or simply didn’t respond.
While, also today, on the New York Times,
[The Trump campaign and the RNC] are employing hard-nosed tactics, warning delegates that attempting to undermine Donald J. Trump’s claim to the nomination violates party rules, and threatening to deny speaking slots to Republicans they deem disloyal for not backing him.
Can I suggest that Trump and the RNC should learn from Monty Python and announce that any delegates that undermine the campaign will have long videos of them shown at the convention, demonstrating their participation in the same party as Trump.
This could be “the turning point” starting on this clip from the Monty Python Dinsdale sketch at 3:00, for about 45 secs.)
