Tidbits And Cat Treats: Bad GOP Omens Edition
What an eventful time it's been since the Indiana primary. In spite of murmurs of GOP "detente" today, we cats still haven't seen any evidence that the Republicans aren't imploding. After all, the same week that Donald Drumpf trundles up to Capitol Hill to make nice with Paul Ryan, these things have happened:
Drumpf inexplicably skipped meeting with the tiny little group of House members who have actually endorsed him. "He snubbed us!" Duncan Hunter whined.
Drumpf's longtime butler was outed as a racist and a pig who has threatened the life of the President of the United States. Hello, FBI? How soon will you be knocking on Mar-a-Lago's door?
George Zimmerman is desperately trying to auction the gun that he used to kill Trayvon Martin. Goodness, we had no idea that Georgie was in such debt. Of course, we're not surprised. But thank you, Georgie: Not only for offending all clear-thinking Americans but — by vowing to spend part of the proceeds against Hillary Clinton — for driving up Democratic turnout even higher in November.
Willard Mitt Romney went after Drumpf on not releasing his taxes. Yeah, we know it's only Romney and the teabags hate him. But independent surburbanites may be listening. Keep talking, Willard!
Finally, the Drumpf campaign put an avowed white supremacist on their list of California delegates. Trouble ensued. Then the Drumpf campaign tried to blame "a database error." Huh? How can the campaign of the smartest guy in the world, the guy with the best brain ever, make a mistake as elemental as that? And why is nobody asking that question? We cats HISS.
