Mona Charen is a horrible person.

Last edited Sun Feb 25, 2018, 10:19 PM - Edit history (1)

Yes, what she did on that stage was brave, but lets not forget who this person is. She worked for Ronnie raygun and writes ridiculous articles for the national review and other hack right wing sites like town hall. Sort of like when Dubya(a hero of Charen’s) suddenly became popular for criticizing Trump, sure, its great to have as many voices as possible opposing Trump but lets remember: she's a fucking terrible person.

All horrible people.

14. I support Kristol and his truth telling.

Charen is a harder case, because she’s so clearly whitewashing the GOP’s long history of division, hate, and voter suppression (all in the service of their billionaire donors). And she’s doing that today.

But Kristol, whatever his past failings, is today speaking out for what’s right. I support that.

3. You have to wonder why so many of the usual suspects are opposing The Don

I see two possibilities:

(1) They live from publicity from controversy, but The Don is sucking all the oxygen from the room

(2) They're hoping to find some cover by pretending to be centrists for a while

7. She makes her living by throwing rhetorical firebombs. So you're correct: she's no centrist

The question is:

whether she's just pizzled that The Don gets enough attention to depress her brand

or

whether she's decided that the SS Trumpster is headed for an iceberg and it's time to reserve space of a lifeboat

20. I think a lot of conservative pundits

are worried that Trump is going to kill their brand for the foreseeable future like Coolidge & Hoover killed the Republicans for 20 years.

that said, Nixon didn't kill Republicans - sure, they lost narrowly in 1976, but then only 4 years later, we got conservative hero Reagan for 8 years afterwards and then 4 years of Bush Sr.

6. There should be core basic principles that all Americans subscribe to

-the sanctity of the ballot
-due process
-habeas corpus
-the rule of law
-pluralism
-majority rule/minority rights
-striving for consensus
-an antipathy for the bully.
-the belief that every American has a right to live a life of dignity free from fear

With Trump in office that is the lens through which I view my fellow citizens. I will not deride anybody who is willing to uphold those principles

10. She's a nutjob

Just like Michael Steele who seems suddenly shocked that his party is full of deplorable racists. I mean come on. Maybe Mona is just upset she's not getting invited to all the DC cocktail parties she used to hang out at.

Peace

15. With all due respect

 

You have some serious anger issues and it's VERY bad karma to put what you did out in the universe. MY hope is it doesn't come back and bite you in the ass.

Shitposting like that just makes both the board as a whole and the Democratic party look like drooling idiots. Good riddance.

28. I like Mike Schmidt and David Frum.

They have both been very outspoken against Trump from the beginning. For some people, they are more believable because they are (or were) Republicans.

22. Yes, she is a horrible person

however, we need all the allies we can get in the fight against Trump.

Bill Kristol, Charles Krauthammer, Ana Navarro, Jennifer Rubin, Joe Scarborough, etc

24. Never Trumpers are allies of convenience only

They've all said and written horrible things about the Clintons, Obama, Democrats, progressives, etc. over the years that are difficult, if not impossible, to overlook so as to be able to embrace them now. If a more "conventional" Republican had been elected instead of Trump (i.e. Jeb), they'd be singing their praises and enabling their policies (which, in most cases, would be similar, just not with all of Trump's bombast) and attacking Democrats. If and when a more "conventional" Republican (or conservative) candidate gets elected in the future, they will return to form. They are anti-TRUMP, not anti-GOP.

Is Mona Charen in an organization with ethics in its title.
