UPDATED: For $1,000, you can meet Rhode Island’s most famous village idiot

UPDATE: Sean Spicer DOESN'T come out from hiding in the bushes for RI Republican fund-raiser.

WPRI reports:
"[S]tate GOP Chairman Brandon Bell confirmed to Eyewitness News on Sunday morning that the event had been cancelled."

Last January, I commented on Rhode Island’s inferiority complex and how that makes us grasp at any connection to national or international notoriety.

At that time, our local news media were going ga-ga over the appointments of Mike Flynn as National Security Advisor to Trump and Sean Spicer to White House Press Secretary.

At the time, I predicted these two would bring shame on Rhode Island, though I am hoping they may help Rhode Island get over its obsession with connection our fine little state with people and events in the larger world.

While we certainly have our share of political crazies, they don't have the ability to wreck the economy, take us to war or destroy the planet. Or sell us out to the Russians.

Mike Flynn was one of the first Trumpniks to fall in disgrace as a central figure in the Russiagate scandal that may ultimately bring Trump’s reign to a premature end.

Sean Spicer, on the other hand, has become a national joke and a symbol for the bizarre alternative universe that is Donald Trump.

But that hasn’t stopped Rhode Island Republicans from continuing to grasp at that connection to fame as Spicer is the main feature at their July 2 fund-raiser. Minimum donation is $1000.

Who’s knows? Maybe Mike Flynn will do a surprise drop-in.

I even got an invitation to go (seriously):
