As everyone knows, the Republican National Convention is being held in Cleveland this week. Traditionally a convention was held to nominate a presidential candidate, set the rules and write the platform. We all know who they will nominate. Except for a lame attempt to stop Trump, there’s nothing all that interesting about the rules. Few people pay any attention to the platform. The whole thing could easily be done online. There is one, and only one, reason for the convention. It is a gigantic infomercial for the Republican Party.
The big news is the long list of prominent Republicans who aren’t attending but that’s already out there. So far the most exciting story is whether or not someone plagiarized a Michelle Obama speech. Unless Trump says anything really outrageous or there is violence in the streets, this convention will soon be forgotten.
