For the GOP convention the laughs just never stop, as Tim Tebow denies he is speaking and organizers start begging billionaire Sheldon Adeleson for money.

So first no Sarah Palin, and now no Tim Tebow?

Trump better start beating the weeds to drum up another fake Christian.

And if that is not bad news enough it appears that the convention organizers are rattling their tin cup in the direction of Sheldon Adelson: 

Millions of dollars short and running out of time, organizers of the Republican National Convention have written an urgent request for $6 million to Las Vegas billionaire couple Sheldon and Miriam Adelson to cover the bills for next week’s festivities. 

In a letter to the Adelsons, obtained by POLITICO, the Cleveland 2016 Host Committee revealed the names of more than two dozen prominent corporations and individuals who have reneged on a collective $8.1 million in pledged donations. 

The letter represents the most public acknowledgment to date that Donald Trump has directly cost convention organizers millions of fundraising dollars. 

“Over the past couple months, negative publicity around our potential nominee resulted in a considerable number of pledges backing out from their commitments,” the letter says. 

I am not even sure they make enough popcorn for this shit show, but if they do you can bet I will be devouring it while I watch this train wreck finally come to its fiery conclusion.

    What's funny is Donald thought if he makes these announcements to the world about who is speaking (without asking them) that they would then be forced to accept. He was wrong lol. Even his daughter's rabbi is claiming he accepted to speak but had to back out because he didn't realize things would become so political. Yeah, right rabbi!

      Is that how Trump runs his businesses? Just makes statements of what is going to occur and it suddenly does? Are his employees really that responsive to him? Do they just jump?

      He sure has goofed on the political side of things. It's so obvious he didn't ask questions!

      Sorry, but I don't think he'll be elected our next POTUS.

    Trump doesn't need no Adelson money. Trump said he was self funding his presidential campaign. GOP don't turn Trump into a liar. We don't want to hear Lyin' Trump.

      Exactly! Why would anyone donate to the campaign when you have the Donald with his YUGE bank account and his promises over and over and over again that he'll self fund. Man oh man, you say you got $10 billion so spending $6 million on your big "entertainment extravaganza" convention is just chump change. LOL

      Only until he is the nominee. Then he says the RNC has to pick up the tab for everything else.

      And what did he spend so far? Not much. He has nothing in place. Very few offices, not much staff and no advertising. He counted on free media coverage every time he said something outrageous. So he spent very little of whatever money he has. And now wants the GOP to fund him 100% until the vote.

    VG has finally weighed in at the pee pond. I was waiting for his reaction; being the "my little birdie has told me, it's Sarah!" pom pom king he was.

    An excerpt: "I dashed off an email to the schitt bird, describing it's ancestry, and recommended that it do things to itself that are totally and completely impossible. So far, it has declined to reply to me. Maybe it is reading here?"

    It's worth the time to read. Blind allegiance and all the prayers in the world couldn't make it happen, poor guy.

    Is this the football fella who wears heavy mascara with Bible verses schmeared on them? Oh yeah, that's one demographic the law and order (duh duh) nominee needs desperately to reach after his vile tweets, disrespecting handicapped, women, people of color, mexicans, and Islam.
    Donald the chicken shit needs a few years to find someone appealing to a lot of groups, unless he apologizes for everything he's said and done in the entire race. No Donald, Mariska Hargitay wants nothing to do with you, but you could marry one of Sarah's daughters, that would be a hooooge game changer.

Even a decent, real (don't let your right hand know what your left hand is doing) Christian like Aaron Rodgers scoffs at T-bows self-aggrandizing faith schtick.

    The Universe Conspires Against Trump As Military Coup In Turkey Kills His VP Buzz

    First, there was the terror attack in Nice, France and now a military coup in Turkey. What was supposed to be one of the biggest moments for any presidential campaign has been turned into a third-rate afterthought by more serious news.

      I do like the pirate booty and their veggie sticks so maybe I'll try. My teeth were just not as white as I wanted them to be any longer and I just couldn't deal with the off color so went the full porcelain veneer and I actually feel like I have someone else's teeth in my mouth as they are so white! My mother had them done a few years ago and they were so beautiful that I just had to go for it.

      It was a 50th birthday present to myself but it's been a long process with fitting and molding and lots of trips to the dentist. Hubs thought I should have had boobs lifted instead but I told him we'd do that for my 55th!

      There is a lot of maintenance required once one hits that magical "50", can't believe how hard it is to keep up with things even with being a very active person. Can't believe the things I used to complain about and took for granted at age 25...

    Mike Pence: Sarah Palin Without The Charisma



    It is too amazing to be true. Donald Trump charged Arthur Culvahouse, the same DC lawyer who vetted Sarah Palin, with vetting his VP choices.

    And Trump has ended up picking Sarah Palin, without the charisma.

    One source who used to work as a senior staff member in the House of Representatives told me, “Pence, smart? I used to eat salads at the Rayburn cafeteria that had more brains than Mike Pence.”

    That certainly fits Mike Pence.

      AS a former Hoosier, I agree wholeheartedly. Don't be fooled by the "Pence expanded Medicaid - he refused Obamacare for quite a wile, until there was almost a revolt.

      ANd wann hear a real funny? Pence's predecessor, Mitch Daniels, is a Syrian, who supposedly would be deported should T.Rump be elected POTUS. BTW, Mitchie boy (an idiot bean-counter in his own right, is a blond haired, blue-eyed little twerp.)
