WASHINGTON – Former establishment Republican wordsmith George Will has officially left the GOP. The poor man’s William F. Buckley, Will recently changed his party affiliation from “Republican” to “Asshole.”
Progressives are hailing Will’s move to the dark side, but they don’t understand that Never Trumpers like Will, Bill Kristol, Anna Navarro, and others who pose as conservatives on network news shows, have not been considered Republicans for quite some time now. In fact, if these people revealed their true beliefs, they know they would lose their sweet gigs as so-called conservatives on these shows.
“This Trump Derangement Syndrome that has infected my mind has cost me my rational thought,” George explained. “I’m now urging my readers to vote for the Democrats in the upcoming midterms, which confirms my status as a registered asshole.
“My personal hatred for the president has made me favor the greater of two evils, rather than the lesser. And I understand that the Dems will make everything worse than the incompetent Republican congress has, but I’ll get to feel some sweet revenge against Mr. Trump. That’s all I care about. That’s why I’m such an asshole.”
George’s coming out as an asshole is prompting progressives to label him a maverick. They can have him.
