The Morning Rant

"If you really want a good laugh, you should read Tom Nichols' unhinged Twitter meltdown referenced in the sidebar. You can just see his tiny little fists flailing around in impotent rage. Kind of like this, only with less arm flab. Presumably.

"Only now, he's not just mad at Trump, he's mad at all of us who support him. We're all "morally flawed." Or dishonest. What Nichols is trying to do is pull a Buckley and read us out of conservative company. Just like, back in the day, when the John Birch society referring to President Eisenhower as a knowing agent of the USSR proved to be a bridge too far for William F. Buckley and simply banned them from the pages of the National Review magazine.

"Nichols thinks he can do the same sort of thing with Trump supporters. I've actually heard similar sentiments from other NeverTrumpers. They say oooh, you just wait, you, you, you stupid Trumpists. You may think you're on top now, but you just wait. Trump isn't going to be around forever, you know. One day, and may that day be soon, he'll be gone. And when he's gone, there's going to be a day of reckoning, and you'll rue the day you ever voted for him.

"But it's unclear what, exactly, they're going to do to implement this threatened 'Night of the Long Knives.' I guess they're going to kick us out of something, but from what? Not invite us to their parties? Yeah, we're going to be all heartbroken about that. The President's approval rating among Republicans is over 80%, which means Nichols will have to make himself lame kicking out so many people. It would be much easier if the NTers just walked out.

"But again, who the hell cares? Nobody will miss them when they're gone, and it will just confirm that they were never really on our side all along. Nichols, and Bill Kristol, and Stephen Hayes, et. al just don't seem to understand that Trump has exposed them for the petty little nothings that they are. They have zero power, zero influence, zero authority, and a vastly diminished audience. Nobody gives a rat's ass about what gets written in the Bulwark, or the Dispatch and wherever Nichols' stuff is published. And when Trump leaves office in 2024, the Never Trumpers will still have zero power, zero influence, zero authority, and their audience will still be vastly diminished. Because their target audience has watched the Democrats mount a coup d'tat against a lawfully-elected president, and the Never Trumpers joined in. In other words, when push came to shove, they were on the other side. So their audience is gone, and they will not get it back.

"Trump has broken them every bit as badly has he has broken Kathy Griffith. I was really looking forward to voting for Donald Trump in 2020. And after reading Nichols' screaming Twitter tantrum, I am looking to voting for Donald Trump even more, with bells on and with loud hallelujahs."

Monday's Celebs: I forgot that Gene Barry was Dr. Clayton Forrester in 1953's War of the Worlds, a movie which holds up surprisingly well, all things considered. But he also did a ton of TV (Burke's Laew, The Name of the Game) as well as the short-lived series Bat Masterson, along with Allison Hayes, woh had a recurring role. She was also in the classic Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, so I guess another connection you could say between these celebs is that each starred in classic science fiction movies.

Ms. Hayes died in 1977, a week before her 47th birthday. According to her wiki page, her life was cut short from lead poisoning caused by the calcium supplements she was taking and also leukemia.
