Honestly, I just laughed when I saw this story pop up yesterday:
Yeah, sure, uh-huh, right, you betcha.
Here’s an excerpt from that story at Mediaite:
Republican Party chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released a letter on Thursday detailing months of the RNC’s engagement with CPC co-chairmen Kenneth Wollack and Frank Fahrenkopf. The letter describes many of the RNC’s complaints that the debate structure is supposedly set up to favor Democrats, and McDaniel wrote, “the party and its voters have lost faith in your organization” after the CPD allegedly rejected proposals to reform their processes.
From the RNC letter obtained by Mediaite:
The RNC has a duty to ensure that its future presidential nominees have the opportunity to debate their opponents on a level playing field. So long as the CPD appears intent on stonewalling the meaningful reforms necessary to restore its credibility with the Republican Party as a fair and nonpartisan actor, the RNC will take every step to ensure that future Republican presidential nominees are given that opportunity elsewhere. Accordingly, the RNC will initiate the process of amending the Rules of the Republican Party at our upcoming Winter Meeting to prohibit future Republican nominees from participating in CPD-sponsored debates.
Kabuki Theater. Completely meaningless drivel. Not going to happen, just like Kevin McCarthy’s pledge to revoke the committee seats of prominent communist Democrat national security threats like Adam Schiff, Ilhan Omar and Eric Swalwell. Red meat for the GOP masses, designed to entice you into voting for Ronna Romney McDaniel’s preferred establishment GOP candidates in the mid-terms.
Here’s the truth about the presidential debates: The last one Republicans should have ever participated in was between George H.W. Bush and Mike Dukakis. It should have all ended at that time, because by that time it was obvious that the people who organize and run these fake dog and pony shows are inherently biased against the GOP candidates, and would always, without exception, choose biased moderators who hate those GOP candidates. You know, like Chris Wallace.
For me, the failure to completely blow up this despicable system was perhaps the single largest failing of Donald J. Trump. He had the power to do it and allowed his team of mainly-establishment advisors to convince him not to. Epic fail.
Anyone who thinks the niece of Mitt freaking Romney is going to lead an effort to get that done now is living in an alternate universe. It’s all too ridiculous - and absurd - take seriously.
So I won’t. Neither should you.
That is all.
