Enthusiasm Gap Plagues GOP Convention

Republicans aren’t exactly planning to avoid the convention in droves. But compared to past conventions, lawmakers, lobbyists and candidates aren’t beating a path to St. Paul either.

Of the 12 Republicans running in competitive Senate races — five of whom are incumbents — only three have said they will be attending the convention. Six are definite no-shows, and three are on the fence.

“Nobody likes a funeral,” said a Senate Republican press secretary who spoke on the condition of anonymity, citing “the overall climate of general malaise about the party” as the reason for hesitance on the part of Republicans.
During an election season, "the party" is its face, and that face is John McCain.

Malaise over a nasty, gutter level, smear-based campaign being run by a cranky, often confused, thoroughly uninspiring panderer whom they don't much care for in the first place?

Fancy that.
