The Republican Establishment, the New Keystone Kops?

Have you noticed the similarities between the Republican party establishment and the Keystone Kops?

If you didn’t know, the Keystone Kops were insanely incompetent fictional policemen featured in silent movies in the early 20th century who often ran around in circles trying to solve a problem.  They lacked coordination, collided with each other around every corner and became entangled in ludicrous and ridiculous situations.  Sound familiar?

If ever there was a group of non-fictional Keystone Kops for the 21st century, it is the Republican party establishment attempting to shut down their own probable nominee for the presidency of the United States, Donald Trump.  I’m not advocating for Trump or any other nominee, Republican or Democrat, I’m just sayin’ watching the whole thing is hilarious.

Keystone Kops

I’ve never seen such a bumbling, stumbling, lack of common sense bozos.  Let’s do this.  Let’s try that.  Let’s start a third party.  Let’s spend tens of millions of dollars on negative Trump ads.  Let’s steal delegates.  Let’s change the rules.  Let’s undermine the American people.  Who are these people that were elected themselves?

They are self-serving untrustworthy elites who are so petrified that they will lose their cushy lifestyles filled with lobbyist cash, perks up the wazoo, and government paid expense accounts, that they have morphed into the Keystone Kops, running in circles and getting nowhere.   In fact, more than likely they are pushing Trump closer to the finish line.

No doubt after the election stacks of books will be written about all this nonsense for future historians to dissect and analyze.  I suspect they’ll have a good laugh…just what the cinematic Keystone Kops intended.
