Still time for conservatives to choose Trump...
Here's wishing righty wakes up in time to win with Donald Trump.
Here's longing that anti-Trump conservatives:
1. Recognize their sabotage.
2. Go all in with Donald.
3. Cash in with victory on Nov. 8.
In my mystic musing, an October Surprise has:
Mitt Romney lauding Trump's tax cuts, with businesses' burden dropping to 15% from 35% so they won't leave heavy-handed America for open arms overseas.
Ted Cruz applauding Trump's gun grip, knowing full well the Second Amendment will stay loaded.
Ben Sasse cheering Trump's Supreme Court calls, seeing that top talents Diane Sykes and William Pryor are on the New Yorker's justice list.
Jeb Bush extolling Trump's terror battle, outlined by the 45th president: "My administration will aggressively pursue joint and coalition military operations to crush and destroy ISIS, international cooperation to cut off their funding, expanded intelligence sharing, and cyberwarfare to disrupt and disable their propaganda and recruiting."
Bill Kristol hailing Trump's Israel loyalty, a lock after the tycoon's recent ISIS speech: "We will work side by side with our friends in the Middle East, including our greatest ally, Israel."
Ben Shapiro commending Trump's balanced budget contour.
Mark Levin glorifying Trump's Wall, which will halt the exorbitant flood from Mexico and stop crime in its tracks.
John McCain praising Trump's Muslim moat, especially after the GOP nominee underscored that we cannot "let the hateful ideology of radical Islam – its oppression of women, gays, children and nonbelievers – be allowed to reside or spread within" America.
Brent Bozell endorsing Trump's mission to erase Obamacare in favor of a private plan with low-cost interstate insurance.
Dana Loesch encouraging Trump's law and order toughness amid a country burning like it's 1968.
George Will complimenting Trump's attack on the crummy Veterans Affairs Department.
Thomas Sowell giving Trump an A for targeting Common Core in favor of local school sanity.
Jonah Goldberg exalting Trump's patriotism, spelled out by Donald's defense of America's A-bomb end to WWII: "Do you remember this thing called Pearl Harbor? It turned out we were stronger, meaner, and smarter."
Maybe this is all a pipe dream. Could be the anti-Trump crowd will cut off its nose to spite its smug face no matter how ugly a Hillary presidency looks. No matter how her high court picks and mass Muslim migration will ruin America.
I hold out hope for an Autumn Awakening. Just as Ben Carson and Chris Christie – unlike Killjoy Kasich – shook off the primary bloodletting to rally around Trump.
In the 1957 flick The Bridge on the River Kwai, Alec Guinness realizes his treachery in time to blow up the Japanese prize.
"What have I done?" he says before falling on the plunger.
There's time for Romney & Co. to do the same: stand for what's right, derail Hillary, and ride the Trump Train to triumph.
