Rush Limbaugh recently talked about this fellow several times. And Drudge ran a link to a story on Curly Haugland, too. This is a fascinating piece of video footage. If you haven’t kept up with current events, there’s some voter discontent with candidates winning a majority of popular primary election votes and yet not winning the delegates; or there just flat out being no popular primary voting and a particular candidate winning the delegates – somehow.
Curly Haugland sez that the media are at fault for creating all of this voter anger about how the machinery of the various political parties works – or doesn’t work – in putting candidates on the nation’s Presidential ballots.
The voters don’t matter at all in picking a particular party’s nominee. And it has always been that way, sez Curly. Furthermore, if you listen to the Q&A in this video he’s not in any frame of mind to entertain the recent complaining about, oh for instance, how Ted Cruz got all of Colorado’s delegates to the GOP’s coming national convention without even a primary election.
In fact, you can draw a pretty strong inference from Curly that he thinks maybe we shouldn’t even have primary elections. Further, we can draw an inference that Curly believes primaries serve no purpose except to let voters get in the way of the party honchos doing what they want to do – by creating unnecessary media firestorms. That’s what I got from this.
Welcome to reality, America.
Good luck if you think you’re going to have any influence on what the GOP does with Donald Trump’s candidacy. We don’t matter here. It’s the GOP insiders and power brokers who are going to decide what choices we have – or don’t have- come next November. I will not be surprised to see a floor fight, a brokered convention and another RINO like Paul Ryan, John McCain or Mitt Romney eventually come out of the Cleveland convention as the GOP nominee.
Oh, I can hope that doesn’t happen. But that’s all I can do. And that’s all you can do. Curly Haugland et al are actually in charge. Isn’t that something.
