The GOP 'establishment' are delusional
I keep reading about a brokered convention. ... about 'convention chaos'. ... about the "Stop Trump" movement gaining momentum. All this punditry references the Republican Convention in Cleveland this summer. The GOP wizards - those clearly in control, the Republican 'establishment' and the wise men - seem to take it for granted that Trump WON'T be the nominee. I don't know what the rules are, but I assume that if a candidate shows up with the requisite majority of delegates - 1237 is the magic number - then that candidate WILL be the GOP's 2016 Presidential nominee. I've seen nothing to suggest that Mr. Trump will not arrive at the Convention with at least that total. Am I delusional, or are the GOP 'establishment' wizards those with the really good drugs? (... and could they maybe give me the names of their dealers?) Note: it's NEWS when someone other than Trump wins! - most recently Kasich in Ohio. "Dog bites man" is not news; "Man bites dog" IS news. When it's newsworthy that ANYONE other than Trump wins a primary, my inference is that Mr. Trump is the odds-on favorite to win the nomination.
