Ex-County Republican Chair Sid Dinerstein Wants No-Confidence Vote on Mitch McConnell
The Republican Party of Palm Beach County is never lacking for drama, and on Monday, Sept. 26, the Board of Directors will decide if the party can handle more.
Sid Dinerstein, who headed the local Republican Executive Committee for ten years (2002-2012), has submitted a resolution for the board to consider.
The resolution calls for a no-confidence vote in Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell.
RESOLVED, the Republican Executive Committee of Palm Beach County should immediately take a No Confidence vote on whether or not Senator Mitch McConnell Should remain our Republican Senate leader; and,
Dinerstein has requested a board vote, and according to REC Chairman Michael Barnett, the rules require the board to take up the resolution at its next meeting.
McConnell isn’t too popular with rank-and-file Republicans, and the board may pass it.
The resolution would then go to the entire Republican Executive Committee at the general meeting on Oct. 12.
Dinerstein has always been colorful, and some of his language is too.
WHEREAS, Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell displays none of the passion, urgency, leadership or warrior spirit necessary to assure a Republican Senate victory in the November elections,
The Dinerstein Resolution
I worked with Dinerstein for years before I left to start BizPac Review, and he always had a passionate and happy warrior spirit.
When I asked him why he was submitting the resolution right before a general election, he said,
We are a country at war. Mitch McConnell is too busy making deals with the other side to be a wartime general. Ditch Mitch.

Not as positive a message as I’m accustomed to hearing from Dinerstein, but these are not cheerful times.
I tend to put aside a lot of the things I don’t like about McConnell and try to keep in mind that, but for him, the vicious leftist Garland would be on the Supreme Court.
Resolutions like this generally don’t make it past the county level, but I guess it lets people blow off some steam, so Que sera, sera.
When my wife and I moved here in 1991, the first club we joined to meet new friends was the Young Republicans. We had a lot of fun and made some lasting friendships.
YRs are always worth supporting and fun to be around.

Kerner Endorsement of DeSantis
It’s been a lot of fun watching Democrat’s heads explode over Democrat Palm Beach County Commissioner Dave Kerner’s endorsement of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
Democrats have the weasel ex-Republican Charlie Crist as their gubernatorial nominee, who’s nothing more than a sacrificial lamb. Democrats constantly celebrate the likes of Liz Cheney and the like as having the courage and integrity to stand against their party.
Why not Kerner? What Kerner did took courage.
For anyone who doesn’t like the Kerner endorsement of DeSantis, they make a violin just for you.
In 2006, at a private breakfast meeting when he was running for the Republican nomination for governor against Tom Gallagher, Crist told me to my face that he believed life began at conception and that he was pro-life.
Now he supports abortion.
That’s the kind of weasel Crist is, and the Democrats chose him as their nominee.
I salute Kerner for making the right decision and endorsing Gov. DeSantis. DeSantis will keep our communities safe, the Democrats won’t, and everyone knows it.
It was the right thing to do.
