GOP Convention: ‘Regrets Only’

(Hat tip: Scissorhead Dennis Cole)

…and that’s pretty much all Lord Damp Nut is getting, bigly, for his Jacksonville Floriduh nominating convention invite.

We already know that Willard is not going and I’m pretty sure our Brat-in-Chief didn’t invite him to his party, that’ll show him!

Vanity Fair:

On Monday, the New York Times reported four more planned no-shows: Senators Roy Bluntand Pat Roberts and Florida Representatives Francis Rooney. Even more appear to be on the fence about the whole thing, including Marco Rubio of Florida;

Li’l Marco, who presumably lives in Floriduh and will mostly likely be in-state? Oh, that’s a power move.

John Thune, the number two Republican in the Senate; and Liz Cheney, who has been increasingly critical of Trump as of late.

Who else isn’t coming?

A surge of new infections is making many Republicans, including Chuck Grassley, squeamish about attending. And Trump’s mishandling of the pandemic, along with the escalation of his racist culture wars, may lead some vulnerable Republicans to want to keep their distance; Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, both noted for their “disappointment” with the president, have each said they do not plan to attend.

Sue and Lisa will change their minds at the last moment; it’s their mean girls trademark move. But it’s OK, he didn’t want any stinky,  cootie-carrying girls in his tree fort anyway!

As we used to say back in the ’90s, “But what about Dawson?”

even Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has wavered about the idea of having a convention at all. “We will have to wait and see how things look in late August to determine if we can safely convene that many people,” he said last week.

Here’s the best quote:

“Everybody just assumes no one is going,” Illinois Representative Darin LaHood, an honorary state co-chair of the Trump campaign who has RSVP’d no to the convention, told the Times.

    Attendance should be compulsory for all Republican office holders (and candidates), on pain of expulsion from the party. You too, Ronna McDaniel, and your uncle Mitt! If kids have to go to school, you have to go to Jacksonville.

      Tsk, tsk, tsk, Buttermilk.
      Have you forgotten the Republican creed “Privatize the profits and socialize the losses.”?

      That includes the slow, horrible death of immature bullet catchers.

  10. Just a brief reminder that the Democratic Convention would have been starting in Milwaukee this week. But the Democrats are not a greedy Death Cult.

    Shark Week is a couple of weeks earlier than the Gooper CovidFest so that excuse is shot to hell.

    Of course, Stephen Miller must have picked the date for the Jacksonville shindig. It’s the 60th anniversary of Ax-Handle Saturday. It’s a big deal in JAX.

      Wonderful. The most likely to vote for the MHSG will show up in droves.
      Maskless, foam-flecked, and proud of it.

      That should cost him an electoral vote, or three.
