The Circus Comes to Cleveland

CLEVELAND, Ohio—It is flattering to be in Cleveland for the GOP convention as a member of the press, because everything that happens here is really for me. Not me specifically, of course, or even primarily for writers at online newspapers—TV stations with large audiences are obviously higher up on the press heap—but the media as a whole, with its ability to broadcast events and to shape public opinion about them, is the whole reason-for-being of this vast, tense pep-rally.

Nothing is actually going to happen here, politically speaking, so if it weren't for us, what would be the reason to hold this expensive, disruptive get-together? The failed effort to force a floor vote on the rules package, which, had it succeeded, would still have failed to stop Trump's nomination, will likely be the closest thing this week to anything resembling political "news" in the strict sense.
