Kurt Schlichter: "Embarrassing Festival Of Never Trump Losers Occurs For Some Reason"

Have you all got your "Summit on Principled Conservatism" tickets yet?

Woke Rule No. 1 is that anything with "Principles" in its name is a grift. Now, something called "Principles First" -- ugh -- is trying to shoehorn into CPACís spotlight with its "National Summit on Principled Conservatism" to be held in D.C. on February 29th, and for the low, low, almost certainly lib tech tycoon-subsidized price of $10, you can attend this sexless Never Trump Freaknik.

It's an opportunity to get one-on-one with all your favorite relevancy-challenged B-list MSNBCNN guests for a full day of complaining about Donald Trump and having them show you on the doll exactly where Trump hurt them. Brace yourselves for impassioned pleas by impotent weirdos to vote for the crusty commie curmudgeon because Trump sends mean tweets, plus plenty of "Oh well I nevers" and "We're better than thats" as Pearl Clutchfest 2020 gets well and truly lit. Just don't be surprised if the marquee outside reads "Puppet Show and Never Trump."

From political consultants who are no longer consulted to writers who are no longer read, this is the Woodstock for conservatives who never actually conserved anything.

Later, he says:

Basically, it's the Fyre Festival for the biggest bunch of failures in American politics.

Oh, a source just sent me the text of the brainstorming whiteboard for National Summit for Muh Princibuhls.

Relevancy

Speaking of grifters being paid by leftwing Franco-Iranian Pierre Omidyar, in the sidebar I had noted that Bill Kristol -- seconded by #SalonHot25 All-Star AllahPundit -- had cried "IMMORAL!" at some conservatives' idea of voting in the South Carolina Democrat primary, for Bernie Sanders. Trying to nominate the worst possible candidate to engineer an easy general election win for Trump in November.

Now, I don't endorse that plan, but not because of morality; I just think it's tempting fate. The Democrats did that with Trump and look how that turned out.

I wouldn't want to wake up on November 4th thinking, "Wait, did I just help elect a communist?"

But that's not a moral concern; that's about your beliefs about the likelihood of Bernie Sanders winning. If you think he's almost absolutely guaranteed to lose, then it makes strategic sense to cross over to vote for him.

If you're not sure -- and/or worried about hubris and Greek ironic tragedies -- you'd take a pass on the gamble.

Along with Inigo Montoya, I have come to doubt the meaning of the word "Inconceivable."

But anyway, Fat Sauron and his Drunk Gollum are whining about the "immorality" of telling Republicans to cross over and vote for a Democrat for reasons of general election strategy.

I said that Kristol had encouraged Democrats to vote for Weld or Walsh.

I remembered wrong. Kristol urged Republicans to vote for the one of the Democrat candidates he hopes to fundraise off of.

Yes, Mr. Morality has actually urged people to cross over in primaries in several cases.

In New Hampshire...


...and in Virginia:


But here this asshole flips out over suggestions that real Republicans can pull the same trick:

Why would Trump do that?

Because he read your book, Bill. He read your book, you son of a bitch!

Disclaimer/Clarification: I'm kidding. No one reads Bill Kristol's books.

And Bill Kristol doesn't write books any more.

He writes... Tweets! He Tweet-Tweet-Tweetie-Tweets all day long.

And then he wonders why his mental acuity is falling so rapdily.

Maybe it has something to do with using a communications medium designed to allow ignorant teenagers to exchange pizza and sex plans all day long.

Anyway, I yearn for more moral instruction from fire-breathing secularists, and more lessons about True Conservatism from people gearing up to support a communist -- for real, not as a ratf***ing maneuver -- in November.
