They still haven’t figured out Donald Trump.
GOP leaders thought they’d outfox the frontrunner-they-don’t-want by making him sign a mafia-style “loyalty” pledge to the GOP. He signed it, no problem. And why not? The Republican Party isn’t exactly the Sopranos. What are they going to do if he breaks the pledge anyway? Break his thumbs?
In return, the geniuses behind this idea have now forced every other GOP contender to vow support for Trump if he wins the nomination—along with whoever he chooses as his running mate. Which prompts us to ask a fun and fascinating question: Just who would that running mate be?
Too soon to envision a Trump ticket, you say? Well, why should that stop us? After all, America has had to endure a year or more of earnest speculation among DC pundits about a potential Bush or Clinton White House — vision quests that are literally putting voters to sleep.
