Bill Kristol is obviously in great need of a few months in rehab. He has revealed the big name independent candidate he refers to as “impressive,” and the guy is anything but impressive.
I had imagined that with all the hype Kristol had dug up Honest Abe, brushed him off a bit, loaded his noggin with anti-capitalist Kristolspeak, made George Patton his running mate, and found $100 billion dollars to realize Kristol’s “Never Trump” wet dream.
David French? Really? The man’s name screams, “I SURRENDER!” He is a nobody, known only to about half of National Review’s seventeen readers.

The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible. Forget all your cheap theatrical Bruce Springsteen crap. Forget your sanctimony about struggling Rust Belt factory towns and your conspiracy theories about the wily Orientals stealing our jobs. Forget your goddamned gypsum, and, if he has a problem with that, forget Ed Burke, too. The white American underclass is in thrall to a vicious, selfish culture whose main products are misery and used heroin needles. Donald Trump’s speeches make them feel good. So does OxyContin. What they need isn’t analgesics, literal or political. They need real opportunity, which means that they need real change, which means that they need U-Haul.
French went on to dismiss the struggles white working class Americans endure.”
So, Kristol’s entire motive is to derail the Trump Train. He is determined to show Trump what a man he is, how he can beat The Donald, something no one has been able to accomplish thus far.
Kristol is a hapless fool if he thinks his conniving hit job is going to win him any friends. If Mr. French is able to wick enough votes away from Donald Trump to put Hitlery in the White House, who does Kristol believe patriots of every stripe, including Republicans, will blame? BILL KRISTOL!, who should consider this engineered train wreck carefully before embarking on his penis-measuring challenge to Donald Trump.
How about this scenario as a counter to dumbass Kristol’s treasonous BS: Presuming Hitlery is the communist, I mean Democrat, nominee, and that is far from certain at this point (if The Bern takes California, it is going to be a wild Democrat convention), how about a team of well-heeled donors put up a couple hundred million dollars to run Bernie as an independent? THAT will guarantee a Trump victory, plain and simple. Bernie and Hitlery will share the brain-dead vote about half and half, and The Donald will destroy the French Connection.
Watch the gang on MSNBC’S Morning Joe have fun with this brainless maneuver by Kristol and his gang of Trump-haters.
