      ...Kristols, Sullivans and such do not shift over to the Democratic Party.   They make my flesh crawl. Let them be busy rebuilding a loyal opposition for the next 4 years.

      the intelligence community is no longer geared towards telling the president what they think the president wants to hear

      •  I like Sullivan and Brooks (0+ / 0-)

        They are examples of what I mean by rational, sane conservatives. I don't agree with them, but I do think they are a positive contribution to the dialogue. Putting them in the same category as a shill like Kristol (Bill, not Irving) is unfair.

        Sullivan, by the way, has practically left the GOP. (He has never been registered by any party, since he's not a U.S. citizen.) I imagine he might seriously consider joining the Democratic Party if he could, and the dilemma that creates is exactly what I've been talking about.
