. . . about rat turds in the rice pudding: "It only takes one."

Some folks might say, "Hey, there are ninety-nine raisins and only one rat turd.  It's ninety-nine percent pure.  What's the problem?"

Well, most people know exactly what the problem is.

So they try to fix it by making a batch with 999 raisins and only one rat turd.  Now it's 99.9% pure!

Sorry, still not good enough.

How about only one rat turd in 10,000 raisins?  Huh?  You mean you can't eat around one lousy rat turd?


Well, that's kind of what ol' Donald Trump has devolved into: The rat turd in the Republican rice pudding.  Some of the Party Faithful (remember, it's party before anything and everything) are resolved to try and eat around the rat turd in the rice pudding.  Others, like George Will, have decided that they will not eat rice pudding that has even one rat turd in it.

It will be really interesting to see if, at the Republican convention, they try to fish the rat turd out of the rice pudding or try to convince everyone to eat around it.
