Today in bonkers

Clickbait? Perhaps. Still the headline in the Daily Caller intrigued me:

The Case For A Negotiated Republican Surrender To Hillary

From Jamie Weinstein at the Daily Caller:
It’s time for Republican leaders to consider a negotiated endorsement of Hillary Clinton.
Barring a Wikileaks revelation showing Clinton to be a secret member of ISIS, she seems to be on a glide path to the White House. Instead of Donald Trump attempting to expand his base since securing the Republican nomination, he is politically self-immolating on a national stage. Trump apologists keep saying he will soon change course. But the only way for Trump to change course is to change who he is. That’s not going to happen.
Meanwhile, Trump keeps humiliating the Republican bigwigs who reluctantly endorsed him, be it by attacking the parents of a fallen U.S. soldier or refusing to immediately reciprocate their endorsements of him.
Why do Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and other Republicans continue to allow Trump to sap their dignity, especially as it becomes increasingly clear he is going to lose? And even if he did win, what would there be to celebrate? Trump stands against so much of what conservatives have been fighting for since Ronald Reagan.
Liberals constantly demand Republicans disassociate themselves from their own candidates, and surprisingly they do.

Democrats never disassociate anyone, with the exception of Thomas Eagleton.

  1. "Democrats never disassociate anyone, with the exception of Thomas Eagleton.".....

    Whose misdeeds were laughably minor alongside Bill Clinton's - you'v all heard about Monica under the desk: how about "taking" her ON the desk - or 'taking' Vice President Mondale's daughter Eleanor on the table in the Roosevelt room?

    Reference: "Crisis of Character" by Gary J. Byrne - Secret Service Uniformed Division who's post was at the Oval Office door.

  2. Like the Japanese Army just realizing it's out of ammo and demanding the surrender of Singapore.

    They need to do this because, if it goes to debates, people will see what a wreck she is.

    1. Bet you said he wouldn't win a primary either much less be the nominee with 300 more delegates than required and more votes than any other Republican candidate ever (in a field of 16!!). Bwahahaha Stupid never learns.

  3. Unbelievable! Anyone who claims to be a Republican and buys into this harebrained scheme should immediately join the Dhimmicrat Party. The rank and file Republican voters chose Trump. If you can't live with that and support the candidate, G'bye! You're not wanted. - Elric

  4. Surrender to Hilary. Because Hillary Clinton stands for everything the GOP leadership stands for.

    I'll leave it to the imaginations of everyone else what such an act of political betrayal would bring about.

  9. Why don't Weinstein and the rest of the NeverTrumpers just go over to the other side? We ain't going back to the Bushie/Neocon paradigm; Trump has demolished it. I can't help but think that Levin, Cruz, Romney, the Bushes et al. wouldn't be happier being democrats, and not having to lie and go through all the verbal and mental gyrations in pretending to be conservative.

    1. NEVER TRUMP means we are "on the other side." It ain't about your hate for Bush and the NeoCons, its about an overwhelming distrust of a not-very-nice and not-at-all-qualified and absolutely-not-a-conservative candidate named Donald Trump. We are honoring our conservative principles by not joining the lemmings like you.

    2. Going to the other side would mean giving up the privileged status they get from serving the other side from the other side (...what?) If they openly switch to Democrat, they would have to kneel before the crone mother and become just another of her flying monkeys. Who would care what they say then?

    3. Gad, is Hillary nicer and more qualified than Trump, given what we know of her concerns about national security and her emails?

  10. If their conservative principals actually existed, there would be no Donald Trump. Join the demmirats or form their new party, because this one is ours.

  11. Not at all nice. Good grief. He's not nice? So we looking for a candidate who is the nicest? Do you think we need to out-nice the Chinese? Maybe niceness will help us combat ISIS. LOL. Trump's qualifications are excellent, but nothing ever is quite right for the NeverTrump imbeciles. Trump beats you morons aside the head with your beloved Constitution, but you are too dim-witted to understand this. What do you want him to do, read the Bill of Rights out loud? Which amendments does Trump not support? Get back on your meds, stay out of the sun, maybe take a course on meditation and deep breathing.

    I am happy to read such a forthright declaration of principle. It reinforces what I have read today. Hillary Clinton, and all that she represents, is the same as the Republican Party commentariate. That, o quote, "there isn't a dime's worth of difference" between Gadfly and - say Robert Cook at Althouse.

    The fight is staged, the actors are just actors, and - I almost forgot!
