Perhaps the greatest accomplishment reached by Donald Trump since he announced his presidential run is his killing off of the idea that Bill Kristol is some kind of significant political commentator and political operative.
Kristol's anti-Trump initiative has fallen flat on its face. Kristol has been at the center of anti-Trump letters signed by top Washington insiders. He has been influential in cover magazines denouncing Trump. He has launched a stream of non-stop anti-Trump rhetoric. And he has even visited the motherland for support and shekels. None of this has caused the Trump train to even slow.
Remarkably, Kristol has not even been able to stop the politicians he formerly controlled, Sarah Palin and Dan Quayle, from becoming Trump supporters.
In his latest attempt at stopping Trump, he is considering putting in front of the nation a third party candidate by the name of David French.
French has about as much name recognition with the American people as Zhou Xiaochuan and would be about as attractive to the American people as Jocelyn Wildenstein .
Here's the Republican reaction to the Kristol choice: French, Proposed Conservative Alternative to Trump, Draws Tepid Response.
This is something to contemplate. Kristol has proven ineffectual, despite the fact that most of the establishment and elite would gladly jump on board a campaign that appeared to have a chance at derailing Trump.
Krsitol's anti-Trump campaign has exposed him as the intellectual leader who has no following and no true political skills.
R.I.P. Bill Kristol
