All Aboard The Good Ship KristolPop

The article is almost a year old, but it is as fresh and lovely as ever. Any time somebody takes a shot at Cruise Director Bill is a good time, and this one is particularly sharp and cutting.

Put Up or Shut Up: Bill Kristol in 2018

Kristol is the founder and editor-at-large of The Weekly Standard and inarguably the most anti-Trump of the NeverTrump Republicans. He has cleverly carved out a niche for himself as the Left’s go-to guy for a nasty comment or tweet about the president. Kristol’s criticism also extends to the president’s staff, family, and voters. He rants about Republicans in Congress who support Trump and smugly doles out advice about how they can usurp the president’s power and agenda. For all of Kristol’s invective, somehow Democrats have emerged untouched.
It’s sad, really.

He is also a prolific political loser, notoriously backing unqualified, unappealing candidates with no chance of winning. This includes Alan Keyes, Sarah Palin, and Evan McMullin to name a few. He repeatedly said Trump would lose the primary; when he didn’t, Kristol insisted Trump would lose the general election in a landslide. Scores of articles catalog his lousy policy ideas, laughable endorsements, and failed predictions.

If you are running for office, beware the Curse of Kristol.


One of the most laughable things about Bill Kristol is that his NeverTrump mania is devoid of anything other than smug snark and elitist haughtiness. If he had anything of substance to say about President Trump it would go a long way toward making it easier to take him seriously, or at least not laugh uproariously and make fart noises with your hands.

Well, on second thought, no that's not the case. He is a perfect pompous asshole, and nothing can save him from that.

And...something delightful below the break...
