G.O.P. Plans to Drop Presidential Primaries in 4 States to Impede Trump Challengers...

WASHINGTON — The Republican Parties in Arizona, Kansas, Nevada and South Carolina intend to cancel the 2020 presidential primaries in their states, according to three people familiar with their plans, a move aimed at depriving President Trump’s long-shot challengers of chances to build support.
The state parties have not formalized their decisions, but Mr. Trump’s challengers denounced the move. Joe Walsh, a former Tea Party congressman from Illinois who announced his candidacy last month, said he planned to fight the move legally and by appealing directly to voters in those states.
“It’s something a mob boss would do,” Mr. Walsh said in an interview. “All the times in 2016 when he said the Democrats were rigging the system to elect Hillary? He is actually eliminating elections in certain states, and that’s undemocratic.”
The Republican Party has become a political cult. I've never voted Democrat for any political office above the purely local in my life. And the local exceptions were exactly two, both times for my father. But if the Democrats don't nominate a leftist moonbat next year, I will probably take a stiff drink, steady my shaking hand, and pull the lever for their guy. Yes, I think things are that bad. Joe Biden is wrong about almost every issue I care about. But...
* He is not a nut.
* He is not morally bankrupt.
* I am reliably informed that he can read and write.
And that is pretty much what it has come down to. I am so over Trump and the cult of personality he has constructed. The GOP has lost its soul and it needs purification. And that is only going to come from a trip to the electoral woodshed.
