It's final: 2016 GOP presidential convention to be in Disney World
Among the many benefits of being a Grumpy Abe reader is that you often get news before it happens. Today's scoop arrives from Washington, where the Republican brass reportedly has completed its months-long mission of finding a comfort zone as the site of its 2016 presidential convention. The GOP stalwarts and honor guards will convene in Disney World. Chairman Reince Priebus, who is never without one more linguistic surprise, says D-World is a perfect venue to integrate family fun and politics. He would not confirm that the search committee also believed that the Disney World setting was chosen so the party's own clowns would not stand out so much in the crowds.
