Somewhere on this ball we call "Earth"
 



"A slot at the Republican National Convention used to be a career-maker — a chance to make your name on the big stage and to catch the eye of the Republican donors and activists who make or break campaigns.

In the year of Trump: Not so much.

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.

“I am not attending,” said South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, who is overseeing the high-profile congressional Republican investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of the attacks on Benghazi. Gowdy, who said he was taking his family to the beach instead, hasn’t gone to conventions in the past and didn’t plan to now.

“I’m not,” said South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford, a former two-term governor. “But hope you have a good Thursday!”

“Don’t know,” said Sean Duffy, a reality-TV-star-turned-Wisconsin congressman, “I haven’t thought about it.”

Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo: "I won't be there.”

The widespread lack of interest, Republicans say, boils down to one thing: the growing consensus that it’s best to steer clear of Trump." (More)

The real America not that part where you live.
 



I am sure Trump will speak enough for everyone. I can't think of anyone who loves to hear the sound of his shit spewing babble more than he does. Well maybe Rush Limbaugh.

that poster is great. Shitgibbon is getting legs around the internet.

Some suggestions I've seen include George Zimmerman, the Duck Dynasty crew, Nugent -- and I'll add my own, the Kentucky clerk, Kim Davis.

I'm picturing it done like Hee-Haw except with no light-hearted humor and all the humor of the "squeal like a pig" Deliverance hillbillies.

Also, shitgibbon.

Since his watermark got cropped just let me add; Terry Border's work should be much better known.
