Flip-flopper in chief
The irony is that Trump supporters are said to be fed up with the temporizing of Washington politicians. You want flip-flop? Trump last night at the Mar-a-Lago promises to be a unifier. Yes, even Paul Ryan, who read out Donald for his temporizing on the Ku Klux Klan. We’ll get along, said Donald, or “Ryan will pay a big price.” (More at Politico.)
Like Nebraska Tea Party Republican Sen. Ben Sasse, we are movement conservatives. “If Donald Trump ends up as the GOP nominee, conservatives will need to find a third option.”
What do you want to bet that Donald Trump doesn’t show for the next debate? Why would he?
Blaska’s Ecclesiastes: There is a time to rail and a time to laugh: “Trumped” starring Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane (a takeoff on their Broadway performance of The Producers) from Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Be it resolved
The Squire and his retinue will grace with his presence the Dane County Republican Party Caucus Saturday at City Center West, Middleton. He has a raft of resolutions, including this one he will submit from the floor. It concludes:
WHEREAS Speaker Paul Ryan warns: “If a person wants to be the nominee of the Republican Party, there can be no evasion and no games. They must reject any group or cause that is built on bigotry. This party does not prey on people’s prejudices. We appeal to their highest ideals. This is the Party of Lincoln. We believe all people are created equal in the eyes of God and our government. This is fundamental;” and
WHEREAS The Real Clear average of national public opinion polls shows Trump losing to Hillary Clinton while Cruz and Rubio lead the putative Democratic nominee; and
WHEREAS Donald J. Trump is an American Mussolini; he is a strongman contemptuous of small government and individual rights; he is a demagogue who betrays the conservative cause; an opportunist who is not now nor has ever been a Republican; now, be it therefore
RESOLVED That the Republican Party of Dane County, in caucus assembled, do not recognize Donald J. Trump as a Republican; and be it further
RESOLVED That the Republican Party meeting at the National Convention endorse as its presidential candidate a true Republican, not Donald Trump.
