Have your heard? The GOP, coming off a complete dud of their own convention, have decided they need a do-over and are planning a "counter convention" during the Democratic Convention in Charlotte.
Republicans plan to bracket Democrats’ Charlotte, N.C., convention with an unprecedented counter-convention right outside the gates of the Time Warner Cable Arena, where Democrats will gather after Labor Day.
When I read it I thought, "This is not going to end well for them."
It will be an effort full of gimmicks, including a Romney-Ryan NASCAR race car – number 12 for 2012, of course.
And while Democrats have happily made light of Mitt Romney’s “Etch A Sketch” foible, Republicans will bring their own toys, including “You Build It” Legos and “You Build It” Monopoly.
Republicans have tried to woo independent voters who supported President Obama in 2008 but are disappointed in his performance.
To that point, they’ll have plenty of Kleenex – “because breaking up is hard to do” – according to the plan.
