Comment: Rules are rules, depending on what your definition of "are" is.

(See in situ)


Rules are rules, depending on what your definition of "are" is.

"Rules are rules and they do have to follow them."

They do? Why? They just make 'em up as they go along. If their arbitrary BS makes someone cranky, I expect their little hearts will just break. (And then, like Dick Cheney, they'll get new hearts, over someone's dead body.) What are the consequences, when they fail to follow their own rules? What's our recourse? To what higher authority does the RNC report? To whom can their decision be appealed? And if some higher authority does exist, is that authority likely to reverse the RNC position?

Does anyone have an encouraging answer to ANY of these questions? If so, please bring it out, because I'm grinding my teeth here.
