esquire.com – CLEVELAND, OHIO—Once the deed was done, and folks were filtering out to celebrate the elevation of He, Trump to the toppermost of the poppermost of the Republican Party, it was time for the Volksgerichtshof portion of the festivities. One after another, the establishment pols came rolling out to pledge their undying fealty to the new boss. I’m surprised that He, Trump let them keep their belts on so their pants wouldn’t fall down.
First came Mitch McConnell, booed once again by most of those still in the Q. Then came most of the Republican Senate rookies, the ones who were elected in 2014 in The Only Election That Ever Really Mattered. Paul Ryan stepped up and, I’m not sure, but I think the zombie-eyed granny-starver from the state of Wisconsin may have inadvertently accepted his party’s nomination for president. He certainly didn’t mention anyone else who might have done so. “Whaddya say?” he asked the convention as his speech came to a close.
