Oh good plan

NBC and CNN are planning on developing respectively a miniseries and documentary about Hillary Clinton.

I know you all can barely contain your lack of enthusiasm.

But not Reince Priebus, head of the RNC, he's very angry:
If you have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC's Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote of the RNC stating that the committee will neither partner with you in the 2016 primary debate no sanction primary debates which you sponsor.
Golly, threatening to limit the "majesty" of the Republican Party's rallies pageant to FoxNews only.

It must be a day ending in "Y" or something.

Although, I understand Roger Aisles is working on the heroic story of Marco Rubio maintaining a 34-inch waist -- just to make Chris Christie cry.

Fox carried five Republican “debates” last year. It’s possible there might be only five in 2016 anyway.

More exposure can only damage the Anointed One, Paul Ryan.

Hey! Cut him some slack! Being totally "fair and balanced" I'm sure the RNC made the same criticism when Showtime's "DC 9/11: Time of Crisis", a bogus epic made by Republican toady Lionel Chetwynd in Canada to avoid paying union wages, and came out before the 2004 election. Amiright?

No doubt they raised a royal shit-fit when "The Path to 9/11" came out in Sept 2006, only two months before a national election.

The Human Anagram, once again, makes himself and the RNC look like jackasses.

Of course, Michael Steele has already set the bar pretty low in that regard, so it's not exactly due to any supreme effort on the part of Priebus.
