In the lead-up to this week's Republican Convention in Cleveland, everyone who dislikes Trump was looking forward to a popcorn-fueled comedy show. What we've seen is worse - and darker - than what we could have imagined. It started the first evening and transitioned into the surreal for the 2nd day.
A first clue would be the first speaker after the Pledge, National Anthem, and Invocation - the Duck Dynasty guy. He was followed by has-been celebrities, war widows, and ex-servicemen. The theme of the night was "Make America Safe Again", which means it was mostly a lot of noise about BENGHAZI!! and criticizing Secretary Clinton. The middle portion was an uncomfortable stretch of war porn, as they trotted out a despondent mother of a dead Benghazi employee, and then two guys trading stories about killing people and limbs being blown off. It went on and on and on, until every ammosexual had a boner and all the old women were in tears.
