Hiding the (Ambulatory) Salami
Florida Governor Rick Scott, whose popularity in the state trails that of the tens of thousands of poodle-swallowing Burmese pythons that are taking over the Everglades, will be among “seven headline speakers” at the upcoming RNC in Tampa. Well, they couldn’t just keep pretending the sitting GOP governor of the state hosting the convention doesn’t exist, could they? Even though he’s probably worth a minimum of three points in the Obama column come election day?
I’m sure Scott will get a really prime-time time slot, maybe while the building is evacuated to load the balloon dump:
Other “headliners” include John McCain, Condi Rice and Mike Huckabee, which will surely secure the all-important angry cloud-shouter, Bush-dead-ender and I-like-my-chicken-sandwich-with-a-side-of-homophobia demographics. RNC Chair Rinseus Repeatus said it best: “Ours will be a world-class convention, worthy of the next president of the United States.” Yes. And he thanks you in advance.
Please consider this an open thread if you’d like.
