Failure Theater Reaches It's Completely Predictable Conclusion

"The wise shall inherit glory,
But shame shall be the legacy of fools."
Proverbs 3:35

Annnnnnnnnnnnd in the least surprising news of the day:

The Republican Party of Texas' executive committee voted Monday evening to hold its statewide convention online, concluding a weekslong whirlwind of controversy and legal battles over initial plans to hold an in-person event during the worsening coronavirus pandemic.

After exhausting legal options, the party's State Republican Executive Committee, a 64- member governing board, met virtually Monday to consider moving the convention online. The vote was 53-4.

Monday's vote is the latest development in a saga over whether the party would end up hosting what was expected to be a roughly 6,000-person event in an area of the state that has emerged as one of the country's hot spots for the coronavirus. The gathering, before Houston officials canceled it last week, was scheduled to begin Thursday at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Earlier Monday, the all-Republican Texas Supreme Court dismissed an appeal by the party seeking to host the convention as scheduled in a 7-1 ruling. Justices also denied a similar petition spearheaded by other party officials and Steve Hotze, a conservative activist based in Houston. Later on Monday, a Harris County District Court also ruled against the party, effectively killing the party's chances of proceeding with its in-person gathering.

What's left to say?!?

Except this:

Adios Texas house.

Bottom Line: "...if you can keep it."
