Ha ha ha ha. The RNC has as much of a chance as the DNC of getting a penny from me. Zero.Point.Zero.

 I Just figured you had to fork over cash for the “Privilege” to attend. But even at free, my level of interest in attending a RNC/DNC event remains at Zero.

Nate Monroe says the RNC events are moving outdoors.

Looks like the ballpark is being proposed as the host site.

Thanks.
What could go wrong? Heat Index > 100?  Thunderstorms?  Ravenous Mosquitos?

I believe Murphy's Law would require that they all happen simultaneously.

Jacksonville is getting attention from the late-night talk shows.

Quote
California and Florida have two of the country’s worst Covid-19 outbreaks and, as Stephen Colbert pointed out on Tuesday’s “Late Show,” the latter is the site of the Republication National Convention next month. “They’ll be fine,” he said, “as long as everyone remembers to wear their elephant plague masks.”

    “Well, at least they don’t have a lot of old people down there. Or at least, thanks to their governor, they won’t in about three weeks.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

    “As one G.O.P. representative put it, ‘Everybody just assumes no one is going.’ Yeah, even the R.S.V.P.s say, ‘Check one: “Not attending,” “What? No!,” or “I’m ready, Jesus.”’” — STEPHEN COLBERT

    “I don’t blame any of these people for not going. Not only is Florida the new epicenter, but in addition, ‘Party officials were considering docking cruise ships in the city’s port to provide extra lodging.’ So, you’re in Florida, spending all day in an auditorium full of screaming people who won’t wear masks, then you go home to sleep on a floating petri dish. The only way it would be more infectious is if the dinner was an all-you-can-bob lasagna buffet.” — STEPHEN COLBERT

    ”Yeah, the president is now holding a three-day outdoor event in Florida in August. It will be worth watching just to see Trump lap up glasses of water like a thirsty golden retriever. And poor Mike Pence is going to be sweating like he’s sitting through a ‘Drag Race’ marathon.” — JIMMY FALLON

    “Yeah, Trump decided to move the convention outside after meeting with his most trusted advisers, Chuck Woolery and the My Pillow guy.” — JIMMY FALLON

We can't ever seem to find a good reason to be on national news.
