Wondering, on Wednesday (v60)

Anyone know where Paul Ryan is?

His party's standard-bearer today invited Russia to hack America, and Ryan had no statement on his nominee's comments, although he did, through a spokesman, suggest that Vladimir Putin should stay our of our election.

But he did talk about the Zika virus on his official website.

Anyone know where Mitch McConnell is?

When Trump decided we should 'means test' our NATO allies, McConnell said that Trump doesn't know a lot about the issues, but you know, that's OK. Today, Trump invited Russia to hack America, and McConnell has no comment. His official website does have a couple of press releases today about tax dollars going to his home state.

Anyone know where John McCain is?

He endorsed Donald Trump even though Trump called him a loser, because he was captured and oh, by the way, endured years of torture at the hands of our enemy.  Today Trump invited Russia to hack America, and McCain has no comment on that, although he did admit that he has 'strong differences' with Trump. But he does have a message of sympathy on his official website for the victims of the terrorist attack in Nice.

Anyone know where Al Baldosaro is?

You remember him, right? The Trump adviser and New Hampshire state representative who said this during the Republican hate fest in Cleveland:
Anyone who commits treason should be shot. I believe Hillary Clinton committed treason. She put people in danger. When people take confidential material off a server, you're sharing information with the enemy. That's treason. 
I haven't been able to locate his comments calling for Trump to be shot, have you?

Or West Virginia's Michael Folk, who tweeted earlier this month
Hillary Clinton, you should be tried for treason, murder and crimes against the US Constitution...then hung on the Mall in Washington DC.
Nothing on his Twitter feed about hanging Trump on the Mall; maybe I didn't scroll far enough.

Anyone else wondering where the heck the Republicans are? Anyone wondering what their reaction would have been had Hillary Clinton made this comment?

Yeah, that's the ONLY thing I don't need to wonder about tonight.
