Chickens Coming Home to Roost in the GOP Nomination Battle? Tonight We Find Out.

So it might appear.

Have the Republicans gotten the frontrunner they deserve?

An interesting notion has crossed the minds of conservative journalists, in this case exemplified by Ramesh Ponnuru's pronouncement that the GOP has earned for itself the frontrunner they deserved. The conservative media and the politicians they have nurtured have led to an epistemological closure that allowed them to get Trump'd. Oh well.

Let's let Martin Longman explain:
That’s a learning moment for the folks who actually noticed. And that’s why they’re looking for a candidate who will call the Washington Republicans on their duplicity and double-dealing. I mean, how many times has the Republican leadership in Congress held votes to repeal Obamacare?

And it was ALL bullshit?

A person might have some scales fall from their eyes on a thing like that.

Which is basically why Ponnuru is saying that the GOP deserves Trump. They’ve earned him.

Tonight, they get their first real taste of the consequences of their actions.
I can't wait. Oh, the answer is, yes, it was ALL bullshit. Good on ya, GOP.
