Why can’t the Republican party unify behind the chosen candidate? Let Kirby explain that for ya!

There is a great article in the FNP this morning about the calls for unity among the local Republican Party. Yesterday we spoke of the Delauter and Williams supporters who are now throwing their support behind third party contender Earl Robbins. Since historically a third party candidate has always had the effect that one wishes they would.

Anyhoo, without a hint of irony Kirby shows us everything that is wrong with the Republican party and a incoherent philosophy in these here times. In his first breath he claims:

“I made up my mind weeks ago that if I lost, I’d support Earl,” Delauter said. “I like that he’s laid-back, and he sees things that need to be addressed and wants to address them. I think he has Frederick County’s best interests in mind.”

Oh really? Was Earl going to drop out if Kirby won? Hmmm. Well, after stating that he would not back the chosen Republican for CE, he goes on to lament the lack of unity himself!

The party has not done a good job of presenting a unified front locally, or at the federal level, Delauter said. He pointed to President Donald Trump “doing everything he said he would do,” but still not getting full support among Republicans as an example of that.

“That’s the one thing Democrats have always done a really good job of that the Republican Party really hasn’t,” he said. “If the Democrats had someone like Trump, who came through on everything he said he’d do, they’d be totally behind them. I don’t know why Republicans haven’t.”

So right after telling us all that he will not help in unifying the local ticket, he laments the lack of unity nationally? How do ideas work again?

We came across this wonderful article  about the meltdown of the Congressional Republicans that truly reflects what is wrong with the party today. Do we even have to point out the startlingly lack of awareness Kirby possesses to not understand why people would not support Trump? Of course not!

This whole debacle also reminded us of a skit on Dave Chapelle’s show years ago. Charlie Murphy, Eddie’s brother, would do a segment entitled “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories.” In one segment he described how Rick James came over to Eddie’s house and smeared mud all over his white couch. In the same sentence Rick James both denied and admitted to doing so!

I did not destroy this couch! Yes I did!

Really people. You cannot both lament and support doing the same action. That’s not how any of this works! But it is fun to watch!

Yokel thoughts on the election.

First of all, WOW…just WOW! The three that we write most about (Kirby, Billy, and Tony) couldn’t muster up enough votes among their own party to make it to the general election. I guess it wasn’t just us! Billy really got his backside handed to him:

Holy moly macaroni!

And the other two, who at least didn’t get trounced quite as badly:

But, still lost. We’ve been asked what we are going to do without these three to write about. And our answer to that is:

For we care more about this county being governed by capable people than having material for the blog. Plus, there will always be SOMEONE.

We’ve been looking around the interwebs and have seen that many, many Republicans are super upset about Afzali snagging the nomination. We even saw this proclamation from Cindy:

Most of those upset (including Cindy; so much for mean what you say and say what you mean…oh wait, she’s just mean) are now advocating for Earl Robbins’ Independent campaign, so you can imagine how that’s all going to work out. Please proceed. Cindy and Blaine are amongst those who have already come out to support him. He must be pleased to receive the Silver Linings Playbook Slate endorsement. The infighting/betrayals of this county party are really a sight to behold, folks!

And yes, Cindy made it through to 6th place out of 8th in the BOE race.  Even she knows that it almost insurmountable. And if you know anyone who is confused about how to vote in the general election, you can find ample evidence online to share with them. Be forewarned: she considers it “bullying” when you cite her own words, er…uh, her own madness against her. Take heart that she received about 1/2 the votes she did last time, so we aren’t too worried. NONE of her slate made it, so thankfully we don’t have to draw your attention to any of them any longer.

More good news:

Galen Clagett came in last, showing that he wasn’t able to fool enough people into thinking he was some kind of Progressive Democrat!

Let’s all enjoy walking on cloud 9 today. We will regroup to prep for November very soon. Whoo hoo!
