Establishment Repubs Getting Schlonged, Too!!!!!

I’m so old I remember when the establishment Repubs would argue against a 3rd party because it meant handing the Dims a win!  This was their way of telling unhappy conservatives to sit down and shut up. 

Well, today they’re pissing all over themselves. 

On Monday, Weekly Standard editor-in-chief Bill Kristol tweeted out what the rest of the Republican establishment is thinking: better Hillary than Donald. Here’s the tweet:

Crowd-sourcing: Name of the new party we’ll have to start if Trump wins the GOP nomination? Suggestions welcome at editor@weeklystandard.com

Breitbart has an interesting, if not errant, take on this.  I say “errant”, not because they get their facts wrong, but, because they make a couple of errant comparisons. 

For reasons which can only be known to Breitbart (and their partners Fox News), Breitbart seems to be a campaign tool for Trump.  While Cruz also gets mostly positive coverage from Breitbart, the volume of supportive articles for Trump far exceed that of Cruz.  As to other anti-establishment candidates, such as, say, Paul, well it’s almost non-existent. 

Breitbart, in their article compare Trump to Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan.  Let me state this emphatically and unequivocally.  Donald Trump is not a libertarian (ask him what he thinks of the eminent domain laws), nor is he a conservative(much of what I hear from him consists of expanding government rather than acknowledging the need to diminish all branches). 

All of that stated, I find it hysterically hypocritical of the establishment Repubs to start pissing themselves just thinking of the possibility of getting schlonged by rabble voters after continually schlonging their base for decades. 

But, then, I don’t believe this pissing and moaning is exclusively about Trump.  They weren’t saying this a few weeks ago.  Indeed, it was just a couple of months ago (the entire time Trump has led in the polls) that they forced Trump into signing a commitment not to run as an independent.  But, then, Cruz wasn’t the runner-up.  I think that’s what has them pissing themselves, and causing the talk of a 3rd party run. 

Look, I’m not going to vote for Trump, but, I don’t believe I’ll have to be faced with a choice as to not vote for Trump or a Dim or a 3rd party establishment Repub.  I’m acutely aware of where Trump’s support comes from.  Yes, they’re anti-establishment.  Yes, many are actually people who never voted GOP.  But, mostly, they’re libertarians and conservatives who have been disenfranchised by the GOP.  Care to venture a guess has to who they’ll actually pull the trigger for come primary time?

    Cruz, lining himself up as the safer, less-silly Trump.

    Actually I’ve started to like Trump a lot. Because, the German journaliars are now running constant interference for Hillary. Anyone who drives them crazy is a good one.

    I’m going to have to say Trump….he means it.
    The republicans and democrats are all in bed together with this socialism thing.

  4. DirkH says:

    And, while we’re talking about the internationalsocialists of both parties, here’s a looong radio show with a guy who talks about just that, specifically but not only as related to Pearl Harbour.

    I am a Libertarian, and Trump is not in my top three. I like many of the things Trump says, but I also do not like many of the things Trump does, and I can never trust him. I will hold my nose and my breath and vote for him if he is the alternative to the Dems, unlike some childish folks who sat out the last election.

    • Latitude says:

      agree 100%…..republicans/conservatives/libertarians get too pissy every election
      democrats/liberals/morons/idiots don’t

      The morons will get behind their candidate..no matter who it is….100%

      …and then they win again

    • cdquarles says:

      Same here. I prefer, today, Cruz over Trump; but if it is Trump vs any D, I’ll likely vote for Trump. With the right VP pick, I’ll definitely vote for him, just like I voted McCain because of No-care and because I liked much of what Palin did in Alaska.

    • DirkH says:

      Heh. Liar media is fuming, calls Pegida’s use of Christmas Carols sacrilege – as if any of the journaliars would be anything other than an atheist hard Leftist! – say, “Stille Nacht” depicts Jesus as a refugee – which, of course it doesn’t.
