This from Kristol, who made a career, in spite of getting just about everything wrong, because his audience really wants what he says to be true.

OK, so did Scarborough quote Kristol about it being a racket, or did these two mental giants come to the same conclusion independently?

More of a Mafia-type bust out, IMO.

RW hacks like Rush Limbaugh and his imitators have completely taken over the Republican Party and turned it into a cash machine for their benefit. Governing be damned; it's all about the money now, and has been for over a decade.

It may be that major parts of American conservatism have become such a racket that a kind of refounding of the movement as a cause is necessary…..

Uh, that was the Tea Party. But that's OK. Go ahead and rebrand, or refound, or whatever else you think you need to do.

Nobody better illustrates the fact that conservatism is a racket than William Kristol and the Weekly Standard.

His first response was to criticize the inherent invasion of privacy, followed by the above statement against drug use.
