Yes, Republicans are STILL Trying to Take Out Trump

As the Washington Post reported over the weekend:

A band of exasperated Republicans — including 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney, a handful of veteran consultants and members of the conservative intelligentsia — is actively plotting to draft an independent presidential candidate who could keep Donald Trump from the White House.

These GOP figures are commissioning private polling, lining up major funding sources­ and courting potential contenders, according to interviews with more than a dozen Republicans involved in the discussions. The effort has been sporadic all spring but has intensified significantly in the 10 days since Trump effectively locked up the Republican nomination.

Those involved concede that an independent campaign at this late stage is probably futile, and they think they have only a couple of weeks to launch a credible bid. [Pols emphasis] But these Republicans — including commentators William Kristol and Erick Erickson and strategists Mike Murphy, Stuart Stevens and Rick Wilson — are so repulsed by the prospect of Trump as commander in chief that they are desperate to take action.

    And then there are the Stockholm syndrome types trying to paper over the differences between Trump and what will remain of the GOPSack cartoon: Donald Trump and Paul Ryan

    Hey, anyone who isn't repulsed by the prospect of a Drümpf presidency is no smarter than Moderatus . . . 

    . . . but, paraphrasing President Obama from his speech at the recent WHCD, "Steak or [slime mold].  You may not like steak or [slime mold]– but that's your choice."
