I have a few more:

11. It will be infinitely more anti-LGBT than any to come before.

12. It will take place in a church that is already known for a notoriously anti-LGBT (and GOP sanctioned) event held in the mid-'90s.

14. Any candidate who appears will be connecting his or her candidacy with more discriminatory views then even they or their staffs may know, and they should be sure that they will be asked to answer for such views once they move into the general.

15. No amount of cranberry sauce will sweeten the innately bitter taste of bias
