Now that the gabber-puss grapefruit has tied our poor Pauline to the tracks, the National Review sees itself fit to leap into the frame, stage right, carrying a shiny pair of red white and blue rose shears. My goodness what a revoltin’ development! And it was just past the nick of time…
…he is not deserving of conservative support in the caucuses and primaries. Trump is a philosophically unmoored political opportunist who would trash the broad conservative ideological consensus within the GOP in favor of a free-floating populism with strong-man overtones.
Look at this awful horrible no good man:
Trump’s political opinions have wobbled all over the lot…He has exploited the yawning gap between elite opinion in both parties and the public on immigration… Sometimes he wants to let Russia fight ISIS, and at others he wants to “bomb the sh**” out of it… His obsession is with “winning,” regardless of the means — a spirit that is anathema to the ordered liberty that conservatives hold dear… Indeed, Trump’s politics are those of an averagely well-informed businessman…if you have no familiarity with the relevant details and the levers of power, and no clear principles to guide you, you will, like most tenderfeet, get rolled.
Trump is amoral and unprincipled. He has no idea what America’s problems are nor is he interested in solving them. He’s just a loudmouth populist who will say anything to appeal to the unwashed masses who have overrun the right-wing. Well! Wry stars and garters, what a white-hot indictment of conservative politics — and of the snarling seed-fruit who has so shamefully brought it down.
This last ditch effort of National Review’s is written by The Editors. Meaning it’s written of course by Rich Lowry. I have to wonder how Rich managed to get himself into this sorry position. How did he end up having to kneecap the 2016 Republican front-runner in order to save Patriotic America?
I don’t expect to hear anything from him regarding that. Because it wasn’t eight years ago that he watched a completely amoral and unprincipled newcomer bring a say-anything style to the presidential race in order to appeal to the slackjaw imbeciles. And lo-and-behold if it wasn’t Sarah Palin who flabbergasted The Editors.
I’m sure I’m not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, “Hey, I think she just winked at me.” And her smile. By the end, when she clearly knew she was doing well, it was so sparkling it was almost mesmerizing.
Is there any more rancid human in national politics than Palin? I’m thinking but I don’t have an answer.
It sent little starbursts through the screen and ricocheting around the living rooms of America. This is a quality that can’t be learned; it’s either something you have or you don’t, and man, she’s got it.
Rich Lowry went apeshit for her. And what exactly is the difference between Palin and Trump? Here it is: He’s better at this horrible crap. And she’s a little more obsessed with the military and that’s about it. Lowry thinks he can swoop right in and save the day but the Trump nomination has been in the making for many years. And if there’s anyone to blame for the Horror Named Trump you can start with the anti-intellectual immigrant-bashing unprincipled know-nothing cynical fuckwad, Rich Lowry.
Trump boasted Saturday that support for his presidential campaign would not decline even if he shot someone in the middle of a crowded street.
“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,” Trump said at a campaign rally here.
It’s all too late. Way too late.
