Cap’n Bill And The Mailman’s Son Want To “Save America”

The effete aristocrat who loves opera, Greek philosophy and battles President Trump in his magazine The Weekly Standard, on CNN and MSNBC and his quirky Twitter account has come up with a stratagem to save America.
During the 2016 primary season he watched in abject horror as one GOP candidate after the other (Rick Perry, Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, Rick Santorum, Chris Christie, Carly Fiorina, Jim Gilmore, Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich) surrendered to the man he called “loathsome”, “a con man”, “a charlatan and a demagogue”.
Trump didn’t just steamroll the Republican field he made a mockery of the cherished conservative ideals Kristol has spent more than 30 years touting.
Each year The Weekly Standard embarks on an annual cruise for which its subscribers pay several thousand dollars for a cabin on the ship and a chance to spend time with its founder Cap’n Bill Kristol.
During the 2017 cruise, Kristol’s sardonic sense of the gallows began to anger his readers. His unrelenting drumbeat of criticism for the Trump Administration grew pointless and his readers told him so every chance they got.
To Trump, Kristol IS the rigged system he’s fighting against, the personification of an elite establishment overdue for a rude awakening.
Kristol has a reputation for predictions gone wrong. In 2002, he said military action in Iraq “would start a chain reaction in the Arab world that would be very healthy.” He insisted the Bush tax cuts would ease the deficit, rather than exploding it. In 2008, he predicted Obama would not win a single presidential primary; in 2011, that Rudy Giuliani would run for President; and, in 2015, that Joe Biden would. On different occasions late in the Obama era, Kristol declared that Jennifer Granholm, the former Michigan governor, was about to be picked as a Supreme Court Justice and likely to wind up on a national ticket as Obama’s Vice-President.
Kristol badly wants a Republican to primary President Trump in 2020. The smarmy “conservative” has been traveling to Iowa and New Hampshire in search of that someone.
In New Hampshire this past Wednesday, Kristol, speaking to an audience at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics said two-term Ohio Gov. John Kasich would be "the most obvious candidate" to primary Trump though the governor’s personality and moderate politics have turned off leaders in Kristol’s orbit. No shit, Sherlock.
Kristol acknowledged that he could be wrong about the state of the Republican Party—that it’s possible Republicans won’t be convinced they made a mistake and will re-nominate Trump.

Don’tcha just love the manner in which Brit Hume humiliates the RINOs?  Yeah. Me too.
