This GOP convention was the first one in decades that actually fit the definition of an American political convention, I.E. a congress of free Americans that convened.
People who disagreed with each other actually got together and disagreed. They spoke their minds to each other, (pretty loudly in fact). There was discussion and debate within their own ranks on what it means to be a Republican.
Then moved they forward from that. Yes the #nevertrumps are still whining in the background but at this point no one cares because we let them have their say in public. They made their case and it was a bad one.
The Democratic convention on the other hand promises to be nothing but a hivemind lick fest of...Barack Obama!
Alas poor Crooked Granny Cankles. Always the Bridesmaid but never the bride...even at her own wedding.
