Obviously strongly prefer normal democratic and constitutional politics. But if it comes to it, prefer the deep state to the Trump state.— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) February 14, 2017
A tip ‘o the hate to my VDARE colleague, John Derbyshire.
Various other twits were cussing at Kristol, but your trusty correspondent was pleased as punch, as Hubie used to say.
[Full disclosure: I briefly freelanced for Kristol during the late 1990s, but we never met, and since I used a pseudonym, he didn’t even know I was writing for him.]
