Seeking a politician willing to overlook American people and principles to run as a 3rd party candidate. Guaranteed 15 minutes of fame. Interested? Read on.
It will never happen.
Oh, an Angry Birds Party 3rd party run via the #NeverTrump AKA #StopTrump part of the Republican Party could happen, but even the “Stop Trump Movement” folk have no intention of a president coming out of such a national ordeal. They expect to get 10% of the Republican vote, perhaps 15% of the vote at most, (more likely much less by that time though)… just enough to possibly cut into a Republican Party win to hopefully secure a Democrat win.
So no winning expected or planned on this side. They just want to… shall we say…. stop Trump.
1 The Bush operatives and little man Mitt Romney can not manage to rally what they perceive as stupid voters against Donald Trump,
2 Donald Trump somehow, through what they seem to see as God’s lack of oversight, has the number of delegates to win by the Republican Party convention in Cleveland, Ohio
3 The RNC loses the battle through honest delegates
….. then a rag tag bunch of misfits, the intellectual conservatives whom the establishment GOP never really adopted anyway, will rise up, show their teeth, and remove all opportunity of the Republican Party or even of the American people winning against Hillary Clinton (or whoever else the Democrats might insert if Hillary goes to prison before their convention).
Sure, the Angry Birds Party members know they won’t win. That’s not the point. The point is they just don’t like what they’ve got right now. These angry birds are going to show everyone how angry THEY are now.
The Republican Party has never taken them seriously before, and now they have let a Donald Trump candidate bust in, bring the hearts of normal American people with them (from all walks of life, mind you), and, if the path continues as is, will actually have that Donald Trump person on their ticket.
Oh yes, they are angry birds that make up this Angry Bird Party!
I’m not sure what self-respecting public servant would come in for a no win angry agenda, but the Stop Trump organization is sure looking, and they have three ideas so far they have been checking in with.
The three names being tossed around for their unwinning 3rd party run by this group of angry-birds-angry-at-the-angry voters voting for Trump are as follows:
Yea, I saved Gary Johnson for last because I just wanted to watch you all laugh over supposedly “conservative” Republicans running Gary Johnson as their “conservative Republican candidate”.
So what do these three 3rd party prospects have to say about this group’s kamikaze politician proposal of running a 3rd party candidate to hurt the Republican Party and relinquish the presidency to Hillary?
#1 Rick Perry
And Rick Perry says:
No thank you. I’ll stand with Donald Trump.
Rick Perry, apparently the most sane and perhaps future-minded of those being courted right now, seems to have some honor left in him. Governor Perry told Nick Riccardi of the Associated Press that he would support Donald Trump as the nominee.
Rick Perry, possible 3rd party candidate by conservatives, told me Thurs he’d support Trump over Hillary Clinton. https://t.co/Fy2k5S8t9Z

I’m kind of thinking Governor Perry also might be a little annoyed this group would only want him to sacrifice himself when there was no chance to win, a humiliating position when this same group COULD have stood by him when Governor Perry may actually have been able to have had a REAL chance.
Thus… this tweet by the 2016 Rick Perry campaign manager Jeff Miller:

Jeff Miller also tweeted this out regarding Rick Perry and his aversion to any 3rd Party run:

OK, well Perry is still pushing Ted Cruz for now, but you know, he kind of has to for a while more at least.
The important part is that Rick Perry scoffed at the losing 3rd party run idea and declared his pledge to stick with the Republican Party even under Donald Trump’s leadership.
Let’s chalk one up to Rick Perry for sticking with the Republican Party and even Donald Trump should Mr. Trump be the GOP nominee.
Governor, you are showing at least some character in this instance and have won back at least some of the support I lost for you when you jumped in to help Ted Cruz as a Stop Trump action in Iowa (and only Iowa so you first thought).
Hey Governor Perry, put the past behind you and go help make America great again by helping Donald Trump during these next few years. You could still do something for America, and you would be a great asset in helping usher in America’s better and maybe even best years to come.
The point is, the very fact that you had enough sense and courage to say no to the vultures means that the more noble Rick Perry we all thought we knew may still just be there.
Mr. Trump, would you talk with Rick Perry if he called you? Just don’t mention his glasses, Mr. Trump. Please let that part be unspoken, ok? Thank you, sir.
#2 Tom Coburn
And Tom Coburn says:
Well, I don’t really want to run, but I really don’t want the Republican Party to win with Donald Trump either. So….. well…… maybe.
While the Angry Birds Party would rather have a 3rd party run with Governor Rick Perry instead of Senator Coburn, Senator Coburn made it clear to Hot Air’s Allapundit that he would certainly vote for any 3rd party nominee to bust the Republican Party’s chances of winning.
As for being their candidate, he really was not wanting to run, but he has told friends he would be open to running if the AB Party (aka Angry Birds Party) really needed him to run.
This just doesn’t sound quite like a home run losing 3rd party campaign to me, guys. The guy really doesn’t want to put the couple of months invested into losing one for the Gipper even!

#3 Gary Johnson
And Gary Johnson was heard saying:
Have you seen my dog anywhere lately?
Good job finding some intellectual conservatives to run for you there, Angry Birds.
The first one says he’ll vote for Donald Trump.
The second one just really doesn’t want to put the work into it.
The third has lost his dog.
I guess the job search is still on for someone, anyone to run as a first rate 3rd party LOSER.
It’s funny how Donald Trump seems to have picked just the right word for some of the people in politics today.
However, if you are interested in 15 minutes of notorious fame, there seems to still be an opening!
