I have wanted to blog in some detail about how the Republican convention works and how the media hysterics about an “open convention” are based on a very short sighted view of history. Unfortunately (actually fortunately) I am too involved in a couple of other big writing projects to take the time to go through it. Just today I have found out about an exciting new national outlet for my writing that will more than double my current reach. I’ll give you some details when my first column appears in the new outlet. I will continue to write for Townhall.com as I am now.
Also, there is something exciting coming up with my novel. (No, not a publishing deal yet…boo). I am entering my novel in a crime fiction contest and have been working on some tweaks with an excellent editor. So, I can’t get to the blog right now.
Bottom line on the nomination…the number of delegates required is 1237 for a reason. If you don’t get 1237 you are not the nominee. Never have been. There has never been any such thing as “the candidate with the largest number of delegates should get the nomination…blah..blah..blah..” No, you failed to get the nomination by winning the majority (which is 1237) so now the nominee will be selected at the convention. Kind of like it has been for at least 100 years.
