Bill Kristol's New David French, His Next Evan McMullin, His Latest Attempt at Spoiler Candidate to Win the White House for His Democrat Funders, Has Long Maintained That Barack Obama Is a Muslim

OUT: Attacking Trump for the conspiracy theory that Obama was born in Kenya

IN: Supporting Joe Walsh for the conspiracy theory that Obama is a Muslim

Joe Walsh is going to challenge Trump because, whatever, I guess he's got some child-support bills that need payin'.

Joe Walsh, the impetuous former Republican congressman, will announce a beyond-long-shot primary bid against President Trump in the coming days, the New York Times reports.

Walsh, who was elected out of Illinois as part of the Tea Party wave of 2010, then ousted by Democrat Tammy Duckworth two years later, made his name as a loud adversary of President Obama (while gaining some personal notoriety on the left for his inability to make child-care payments).

Breitbart notes that Joe Walsh has run as a pro-choice moderate previously:

Walsh is something of a political chameleon. He ran for Congress in 1996 as a moderate, pro-choice Republican, challenging long-time Democrat incumbent Rep. Sidney Yates in the 9th district of Illinois. He lost; this author likewise challenged a Democrat incumbent in 2010 and lost, though that effort helped Walsh win in the nearby 8th district, where he unseated Rep. Melissa Bean (D-IL) by a handful of votes and survived a long recount battle.

This is the sensible moderate who will appeal to Suburban Wine Moms that we've been looking for:

Thanks to Will Chamberlain for digging up those tweets.

This exchange with Bill Kristol about that is precious:

This one with Jen Rubin, also good:

None of these people want Joe Walsh to be president. They want a Democrat to be president. Joe Walsh is just a catspaw.

Those Wine Moms Are Getting Moist Update:

Yes, I'm glad we're jettisoning the erratic Trump and his toxic tweeting for this sober-minded statesman.
