A Conversation between Mitch and Paul

By       (Page 1 of 2 pages)   2 comments
Message Dan Shapiro

Ring. Ring.


"Hey Mitch, it's Paul."

"Well, hello Paul. What can I do for you?"

"Well, I just wanted to commiserate, I guess. You know, it's over."

"Paul, I knew Trump was over a long, long, time ago. Why do you think I didn't answer any comments about him? "

"Yeah, but"I still can't believe it."

"Well, believe it. Now we can at least concentrate on doing what we do best -- obstructing the other side."

"How did we let this happen?"

"Paul, WE didn't let this happen. It's the other 16 that let us down in the primary."

"Mitch, respectfully, I disagree. We've been letting this thing get out of hand for years. We didn't speak up when Trump was going after you know who with the Birther stuff, we sat by when people were saying all the anti-government stuff, the climate stuff, the gun stuff, you know what I'm talking about."

"Well, Paul, we needed that right wing constituency. Otherwise, we just wouldn't have enough people in the Party to compete. They would swamp us."

"Yeah, well look what it got us. We put up with all their crap all these years, and now they've taken over the party. I've been worried enough with the Cruz conservatives taking over us establishment types, but before they even had a chance, this Trump/tea party/birther crowd just plowed over them and us."

"I know, Paul, but we had no choice. That was the chance we took. Every year, we are losing the demographic race. There are more women, more Hispanics, more young people, all Democrat people. What else could we do?"

"Well, Mitch, I hate to say it, but, what if it's over? What if we can never put a majority of people together who believe what we believe?"

"Oh, nonsense, Paul. The American people will come to their senses, they have to. I mean, I just can't believe most people aren't like us, on the right side of things. I know here in Kentucky most people don't want gay marriage, they want their guns, are against abortions, they don't want to legalize marijuana, and they don't want to spend money on the environment. It's a fad, I'm telling you. This whole left wing agenda is a big fad! We've just got to wait it out until people come to their senses!"
