Is GOP Blogland so isolated from the Beltway that we're just not feeling the love from the Republican leadership? Where the heck is McConnell? Why isn't the House leadership getting vocal? The silence from the Senate and House Republicans just rings across the wasteland of the primaries.
I know there is a modicum of decorum to be followed in the process of nominations and primaries, but when has honor, decorum, or any other decent virtue motivated a political leader?
Is there no Senate or House leader that can see the plains of the primaries and not be concerned that the GOP is being hunted down like the Buffalo of yore? Picked off by every MSM outlet, and abandoned by its core, the cold wilds of apathy will immobilize the lumbering beast before it decidedly deprives it of life-giving attention and affirmation.
No GOP leader leads the Party ideologically, either. Split, fragmented and fragged by its own, it seems to be patiently awaiting its own demise. Oh, I'm sure not even one GOP Senator or Congressman believes that their own personal status as a so-called "public servant" is threatened.
But it's almost uncanny, the silence on the Big Picture. It evokes the "hmmm...it's quiet. Too quiet..." dialog in my mind.
I'd love to be a mouse in the corner of the Republican Leadership Council right about now. Everyone in it is likely sucking air so hard the Capitol Dome is gonna become the Capitol Disc.
Either that, or they're all holding out hope for a brokered convention.
