Underemployed Angry Man of Retirement Age Shouts Insults at Passers-By





This Kurt Schlichter column wasn't meant to be a direct response to the Cruise Captain, but it turns out to be just that.

Some quotes:

You know all that insufferable babbling and crying about "principles" we had to endure from you Never Trump Konservative Ken Dolls? Your rending of your cheap suits, your 180s over classic GOP policies because The Donald actually tried to enact them, and your mortifying blubbering to suddenly sympathetic hosts on MSNBC and CNN about how awful our President is? With your sad, drawn faces and high-pitched voices, you True Conservatives of Conservatisn [TM], you Keepers of the Flame of Conservativeness resisted the coming of Donald Trump (and those who supported him) because... because...

Because that's not who we are...

Because we're better than that...

Because... our principles!

Our principles. Yeah, right. Well, it was all a crock, a con, a grift by a bunch of displaced Beltway strivers furious that the marks -- that's us Normals -- wised up to their scam, played the players, and sent them packing.

Principles? You laughed uproariously at Sean Hannity's confidential information being revealed for no good reason, just as you laughed at President Trump when federal agents marched into his lawyer's office to steal privileged documents as part of the shameful collusion farce you’ve been applauding. Your principles didn't stop you from supporting an effort to undo the results of an election that left you out in the cold.

What would the Founders say? Probably, "Stop trying to hang around with us."

Where are your principles in the face of the gross injustices of the last few days? A federal judge who was nearly appointed Bill Clinton's attorney general and who officiated at Soros's wedding ordered Hannity’s information disclosed, but that was cool with you. After all, Sean Hannity is so... oh well, I never!

Principles that depend on who is asserting them aren't principles. They are poses.

There's more, of course.
