Intelectual Laziness, Pomposity and Sanctimony

The Old Boy, Country Club, GOP Pundits are beside themselves. They act as if a Jew had joined their Country Club, their Daughter has a black boyfriend and their son married a Mexican. This, sadly includes, George Will, Christopher Buckley, Jonah Goldberg and P.J. O'Rourke, plus most of the Beltway GOP.
For all their vague complaints about Trump, they still haven't gotten to their real problem with him. He's made them irrelevant. m/r

Huckabee: George Will Is ‘One of the Most Bitter People’

by Kathryn Blackhurst | Updated 23 Feb 2017

Former 2008 and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said it’s “no big surprise” that “bitter” conservative commentator George Will is beginning to align with Sen. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) during an interview Thursday on “The Laura Ingraham Show.”
Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, noted that Schumer predicted Tuesday during an appearance on ABC’s “The View” that the country is “going to see a whole lot of Republicans breaking with” President Donald Trump in the next several months. Will echoed Schumer’s prediction Wednesday when the staunch NeverTrumper claimed on MSNBC’s “The Last Word” that when Republicans “realize the slippery slope they’re on, away from bedrock conservative principles, I think things will change by mid-summer.”
“Donald Trump came along and said, ‘This is crazy. Let’s put America first.'”
“The fact that George Will is lining up with Chuck Schumer is no big surprise to me,” Huckabee told LifeZette Editor-in-Chief Laura Ingraham. “Will is probably one of the most bitter people I think I’ve been around, and it’s really beginning to show in a rather unmasked way.”
Conservatives such as Will, Huckabee said, are going completely “crazy” over Trump and his actions as president because they never truly listened to the voices of the American people.
