First Day Of RNC Convention And All Hell Breaks Loose!


While this may be evocative of a Trump hair moment, it is in fact a tumbleweed and as my dear friend from Kansas would say…*Holy Shitballs.*

According to Crooks and Liars

Pandemonium broke out on the floor of the Republican National Convention today as ten states attempted to introduce a resolution to release delegates from their pledges on the first vote.

After a voice vote was called, the chair called it for the “Ayes” despite the fact that there was absolutely no consensus on the floor for the motion. A roll-call vote was refused, which led Mike Lee and Ken Cuccinelli to protest loudly, but to no avail.

The Iowa, Colorado and Virginia delegations then left the convention floor in protest.

The GOP are riding rough shod over their own delegates. They are making the rules up as they go along. Supreme court nomination? But now they are eating their own.


What does Ali have to say about this?

A lot, but I can’t find the picture. I think the battery is low and I too am rather knackered. Missed my connecting flight yesterday from Heathrow to Dublin. I had been up since 7.00am East Coast time and trawled NYC on my own to buy a few wee presents. Got to the UK approximately  24 hours later, had to wait another three hours for another plane. I eventually got home and was determined to beat the jet lag so ended up staying up half the night and woke early to a heat wave here in Dublin.

I should be alright tomorrow.



Eric and me!!!

I wanted to take him home for my daughter. Sadly, he told me he was of the other persuasion. I mentioned that I had two sons, but he wasn’t budging.

    Get your rest IG. I’m not watching the RNC, but enjoying the posts and comments about it.

    • i agree with Linda. Thanks for taking one for the team. It really is too much to watch after a 10 hour work day. I appreciate you being my ‘go to’ for your international take on it all.

    Glad to hear you’re home at least. Rest up so you’ll be ready for us all descending on you if things go pear-shaped here.

    This might cheer you up: Mumma Trump in her Convention speech has lifted yoooge portions of Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech. She obviously thinks everyone has the same tragic memory she and the big orange D suffer from. Sad really. 🙂

    But but..Melania said on the TeeVee that she ‘wrote the speech myself.’ Was she Michelle’s speechwriter back in 2008? And now that awful Manafort is saying, “No big deal. Words are words. Everyone uses them.” Which is how they see the Constitution, isn’t it? And campaign finance laws (he’s still raising money abroad and getting away with it.) And every other law of the land-whatever Donnie wants, Donnie does. Where are his tax returns? And why is the media letting him slide, when Hillary gets skewered over her hair, her schedule, her laugh….come on, there must be a coupe of journalists left.

    Oh, sweetie, sorry about the Heathrow missed flight, but seriously, one sometimes needs 4-5 hours to get from point a to point b at that airport, right? Also, just read an article that jet lag is scientifically worse flying east. Nevertheless, we enjoyed your visit to slower lower Deleware. Did see Eric tonite and he said to tell you hello.

    We are enjoying(????) the train wreck that is the GOP convention.
