Since the Republican Detachment Disorder virus went pneumonic and swept through the ranks of Conservative pundits and their Both Siderist enablers, it's gotten so you can't swing a dead Jeb(!) 2016 campaign around here without hitting one of the afflicted.
Today's winner is Kathleen Parker. From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (with emphasis added):
The Party's (Almost) OverSo it has come to this: A brokered convention or President Hillary Clinton. These options seem to be what’s left to Republicans of conscience, who are, let’s face it, rather Romney-come-latelys to the pyre...The most Republicans can hope for now is...’Tis bitter fruit, indeed, for any Republican to consider voting for Clinton for reasons well-known to all sentient being...It has finally dawned on Republicans that their die is cast...Like a bunch of Ebenezer Scrooges, GOP leaders have begun emerging from their sleep, blinking at the horror of past misdeeds, trying to prevent a future that their actions foretold...Republicans may be forgiven for thinking the Trump carnival would have ended by now, but they don’t deserve much slack for allowing their party...Should Trump become the nominee, more reasoned minds in the GOP might do well to abandon it altogether...
Never "us" or "our".
And never "we".
It's always some other group of influential Conservatives over there who have fucked everything into a cocked hat, leaving us good ones over here to mourn their dereliction and stupidity.
