If you cannot even make the ballot, how serious is this movement?
On Monday one time conservative pundit Bill Kristol delivered an unintentional admission of sorts. In thinking he was making a wise retort to the manufactured outrage from CNN over the ‘’controversial’’ comments made by Senator Martha McSally towards a CNN reporter Kristol actually stepped on a rake. ‘’If it’s liberal,’’ said Kristol in a tweet, ”to hold public officials in our liberal democracy accountable for doing their job, then I guess I’m liberal.’’
This led to an avalanche of responses from the public that stated the obvious; those on the right declared he has been a liberal for some time, and those on the left welcomed him warmly to their side. Neither of those reactions helped at all to bolster the claim that drives his latest media outlet, The Bulwark — he in no way appears to be ‘’conserving conservatism’’. This has led to the slow unraveling of the so-dubbed Never-Trump movement.
