As I may have mentioned once or twice before, when Andrew Sullivan shuttered his site and declared "I will blog no more forever", Imaginary Conservatism lost one of its most prominent voices. But Imaginary Conservatism is growth industry and a very lucrative one, so matter how many of its outlets stores go out of business, there will always be another one adding inventory to make up the difference.
Today, Daily Caller keyboardist, MSNBC regular and bilaterally-symmetrical-American, Matt Lewis, steps right up and stabs irony to death with the sharpened shinbone of the Last True Scotsman:
@mattklewis Democrats pushing Trump inevitability because they know it means they destroy conservatism.— Michael Watson (@MichaelWatsonDC) November 30, 2015
It very well could destroy conservatism as we know it. https://t.co/X0iQgcmV7F— Matt Lewis (@mattklewis) November 30, 2015
I do not know how to put this into words small and dumbed-down enough for Matt Lewis to understand, but as a five-finger writing exercise, I will try.
Donald Trump is not the end of Conservatism as we know it.
Donald Trump is the predictable and inevitable culmination of Conservatism as I have known it for my entire adult life.
