Unrepentant Republican Iraq War Pimp and Sarah Palin hype-man, Bill Kristol, continues to survive one Republican-triggered catastrophe after another because he is a perfect Beltway parasite.
Mr. Kristol know's perfectly well the key to his continued success despite being spectacularly wrong about everything all the time lies in the fact that that his fellow Beltway frauds are every bit as ideologically cornered as any MAGA-hat wearing meathead. Sure, during the Age of Trump they can no longer simply pretend that the Right isn't unhinged racist trash from top to bottom, but they also cannot afford to be seen whispering that, just maybe, the Left was right about the Right all along.
Because this is true and because there are gargantuan fortunes and egos at stake, Mr. Kristol also knows that it does not matter how many times the whole Centrist/No Labels/Both Siderist cottage industry is exposed as grotesque and toxic farce.
Mr. Kristol knows that there will always be an opulent Beltway sinecure and a cloak of respectability for anyone who willing to sing the Siren's Song of Both Siderism.
Some Trump defenders want to declare him innocent, the deep state guilty, and the investigation to end. Some Trump opponents want to assume his wrongdoing. Republicans for the Rule of Law want to let the investigation continue without interference so we can discover the truth. pic.twitter.com/B04LP3JG9A— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) May 31, 2018
