The GOP Smoke Filled Room!

I think Trump has good arguments about the undemocratic process of selecting delegates to the Republican convention. The responses defending the system, noted in my cartoon below, miss the point that voters are disenfranchised.

Look familiar? It might if you are from Nashville, where I used the same group last year in a local cartoon bashing Nashville’s infamous Metro Planning Commission.

Many years earlier, the same group made an appearance in a cartoon that I drew in response to a plea for cartoons about the declining ranks of newspaper cartoonists.  I’ll bet almost no one saw this one.

So, if this is the first time you’ve seen this slimy, smoky group, I forgive you.

To be fair, Trump does have a point, which is that he was not aware of how delegate selection worked. It is not a crime to be ignorant; all of us are ignorant of some things. In such situations, normal people find some one who knows to help them.

Trump's real failing is not ignorance, it was his inability to find someone willing to work with him that was competent. Should he become elected President he would be largely ignorant of our system of government as well as foreign affairs. He may not be able to hire competent help.
