Jonah Goldberg has locked himself in his tree fort where he is currently having a planet-sized sad over the fact that everybody has let him down so terribly.
Donald Trump, who is a tricksie liar who is using his powers of trickery to trick people:
Rick Perry, who should burn in Hell:When Trump says “I’m a conservative,” picture a car salesman insisting, “I’m a Tito Puente fan too.” It’s just something he’s saying to close the deal. As for his adamantine principles, there is only one: The limelight belongs to him alone.
Almost everyone else in the Republican establishment who are now bending a knee to their new overlord --Taking his words literally, Perry wants to make a deal with the devil. In this war on cancer, Perry wants to help cancer win “any way I can.”
-- which, for the record, certain lowlife Liberal riff-raff --Perry is far from alone in his hypocrisy. With the exception of Senator Ben Sasse, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, and a handful of others (including, I hope, Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio), the Republican aristocracy is for the most part bending its knee to the new king, proving that much of the “establishment” is exactly as craven as Trump always claimed.

-- using exactly those words --@Lawrence If Trump tops 1237, expect GOP establishment to bend a knee. They're grovelers and collaborators by nature.— driftglass (@Mr_Electrico) March 24, 2016
-- for awhile now.Watching the Beltway grovelers who dismissed Trump getting in line to bend a knee to their new overlord is gonna be epic.@Lawrence— driftglass (@Mr_Electrico) April 28, 2016
Jonah is also mad at Sarah Palin --
Those who do not yield can hear the executioner’s axe sharpening against the wheel. Trump has dispatched one of his top minions, Sarah Palin, to punish Ryan for his effrontery in second-guessing Trump’s commitment to conservatism. She said she’ll work to defeat Ryan’s reelection bid this fall. “His political career is over,” Palin said on CNN.
-- for whom he used to sport a very public boner:
Jonah even makes room in his hissy fit to side-eye supporters of Senator Sanders because, hey, why not? It gives him an excuse to sneer out the word "socialist" which seems to make him very happy:
He’s more interested in winning the loyalty of Bernie Sanders’s socialist brigades than he is in persuading conservatives he’s one of them.
Yes, it seems that everybody in the explored universe has let poor Doughy Pantsload down.
Except not quite everybody. Because if you read Mr. Goldberg's droppings from top to bottom (but really, why would you?) and look for references to actual voters you will find that, while he tries to tie Trump to imaginary future Evil Socialists twice --
He has admitted that he doesn’t want or need Reaganite conservatives; he’d rather rely on the rank-and-file supporters of a socialist instead.
-- at no point does he ever dare to mention the millions and millions of actual, non-imaginary, here-and-now Republican voters who pack Trump rallies in every city, proudly wear his gang colors and slogans and have happily bulldozed right over the natterings of nobodies like Jonah Goldberg to hand Trump the nomination of their party on a platter.
What about those people, Jonah? Where did all of those people come from?
Well, I'll tell you where the came from.
They are Murrican Conservatives, born and bred. During the Clinton Administration assholes like you nurtured their bigotry and rage with seditious conspiracies and unhinged contempt for their own government. During the Bush Administration, con men like you fed them a steady diet of wingnut Pixie Stix and Jolt cola and encouraged them to run completely wild and believe any batshit thing that came oozing out of Hate Radio or Fox News. And after it all came crashing down, you fed them the hard stuff -- Conservative meth and racist madness -- and told them a dirty commie from Kenya who had stolen their country was to blame for all of their sorrows.
You raise a pack of ravening beasts and mindless chumps, Jonah, who are on fire with an uncontrollable rage that you helped to stoke and have been trained by you to believe any-fucking-thing any slick con man tells them as long as it comports with the voices in their head.
Voices that you helped put there.
You have carved out a fine life for yourself, Jonah, living by the maxim that no one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the Republican voter. And now the devil babies you helped to breed are leaving to follow a cult leader which you helped to make possible, So why are you blaming Rick Perry or Sarah Palin or even Donald Trump for the fact that they are proudly pig-ignorant monsters?
These are your bastards, Jonah, doing exactly what you taught them to do. Too late to leave them on the steps of the Sanders campaign and run away now.
