The plagiarizing scandal continues. Rick Wilson, a conservative pundit writes:

Four years ago the GOP had Clint Eastwood talk to an empty chair; last night Chris Christie held a mock trial. (Will the Dems conduct a fake trial for the Trump University fraud case?)
The Dems don't need to, there are so many fraud cases against the Trumper, no one needs to hold a pretend one for "theatrical effects."
But really. What's with these Goopers? The only way to get their messages across is through make-believe?
They certainly live in a fantasy world, perhaps that's why they believe in what isn't there.
Meanwhile, Hillary had a wicked good comeback:
"If you think Chris Christie can lecture anyone on ethics, we have a bridge to sell you."
Andrew Sullivan live-blogged the Republican National Dumpster Fire, and had this to say:
"Just mulling over the events tonight, there’s one obvious stand-out. I didn’t hear any specific policy proposals to tackle clearly stated public problems.
It is almost as if governing, for the Republican right, is fundamentally about an attitude, rather than about experience or practicality or reasoning. The degeneracy of conservatism – its descent into literally mindless appeals to tribalism and fear and hatred – was on full display.
You might also say the same about the religious right, the members of whom have eagerly embraced a racist, a nativist, a believer in war crimes, and a lover of the tyrants that conservatism once defined itself against.
Their movement long lost any claim to a serious Christian conscience. But that they would so readily embrace such an unreconstructed pagan is indeed a revelation."
We at P.E. have been saying that for a long time. The Evangelical Right has embraced a man who is everything they detest and have stood against in the past. They are moral cowards.
