Breaking News: The Republican Party's in complete disarray. It would be funny, watching them implode, were it not so sad. Today, Republicans just can't get their story straight, especially on the question of who should decide the future of the party -- the people or the professionals.
On the one hand, when it comes to selecting a nominee for president, Republican leaders say: We can't let the people decide, because it looks more and more like they might actually choose Donald Trump. We have to hold an open convention, so party leaders can decide who, other than Trump, will lead the party.
Yet, on the other hand, when it comes to selecting a Supreme Court nominee, Republicans argue just the opposite: We can't let the president decide, because he only has nine months left in office. First, we must let the people decide who will be the next president. Then, just to entangle themselves further, some Republicans suggest: We must let the people decide, UNLESS they elect either Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders -- in which case we won't let the people decide, after all, we'll settle for President Obama's man.
