thelephant  Republicans are now only in the third stage of grief about the Donald candidacy. That is, they are bargaining. The Donald is brokering a deal with the “reasonable (?*!)” Honorable Paul Ryan. Paul, as Mr. Republican deux (for the House, not the Senate), is playing hard to get while triage-ing and trying to keep a Republican Senate majority. Ha! Or should I say we can sing along with JLO about it.*

I can’t wait to see Stage 4 — when the GOP’s well earned “depression” begins! And just think about the possibilities when they hit Stage 5: Acceptance. That’s when Hillary’s schadenfreude really begins.

*JLO = “Jennifer Lopez” for the “millennials” who see her as a movie/TV star, not a pop star.
