Every single time I think it’s impossible for Bill “Captain Cruise Ship” Kristol to damage his reputation any further, he proves me wrong.
For his latest bit of self-immolation, Captain Cruise Ship has enlisted former 1-term Republican Congressman and bitter Never Trumper Joe Walsh to be his next quixotic candidate to take on Donald Trump.
To say Joe Walsh is a hot mess is an understatement.
Last week, Human Events Editor-in-Chief Will Chamberlain pretty much laid bare just what an awful first mate Walsh is in his column “Bill Kristol Wants Joe Walsh To Primary Donald Trump.” You really should read it.
Walsh has a history of saying some borderline racist and flat-out insane things that, if Trump said them, would make Captain Cruise Ship clutch his pearls and scream “Trump is unfit!!!”
But because Walsh began his campaign by issuing an apology for his years of reckless rhetoric, Kristol embraced him like the Second Coming of Reagan.
While it’s true politics makes for strange bedfellows, the Kristol/Walsh alliance is just creepy and weird.
Chamberlain combed through Walsh’s Twitter feed and let’s just say, Bill’s new first mate is as incendiary as Ilhan Omar or Rashida Tlaib – not to mention as rhetorically reckless as that Jew-hating bigot Paul Nehlen.
Speaking of Nehlen …
Yesterday, investigative journalist Luke Thompson shared this picture on Twitter.
Here’s a pic of @WalshFreedom with Paul Nehlen. Walsh supported Nehlen’s primary campaign again Paul Ryan and had him as a guest on his show shortly after Charlottesville. You can listen at the link.https://t.co/WZSX8LT42h pic.twitter.com/7sceisEAwC— Luke Thompson (@ltthompso) August 25, 2019
I wrote about Paul Nehlen in late 2017 calling him David Duke’s bastard child. He’s a frothing anti-Semite who was banned from Twitter for his Jew-hating vitriol in early 2018.
Nehlen loved to accuse conservatives of being shills for the Jooooooos!! He even compiled a list of “goys” who were “shekels for hire” — doing the dirty work of their Jooooo Masters.

1. Legion of Merit w/ OLC
2. Multiple trial victories
3. Being near the top of that slobbering moron Paul Nehlen’s hate list
THESE HONORS ARE IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER.@johncardillo @ArthurSchwartz
And now this bigot Nehlen’s pal is the new first mate for Captain Cruise Ship.
My, how those Mighty “Principles” have fallen, hey, Bill?
It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if Walsh picked the loathsome Paul Nehlen as his running mate.
Which would be exactly what Captain Cruise Ship deserves.
You think Trump is beyond the pale, and so “principle” requires your #NeverTrump clique to prop up an intemperate bigot who called for a race war?— Will Chamberlain (@willchamberlain) August 26, 2019
Please go on this is fascinating https://t.co/leog4y82hx
All his endorsers are Democrats— Will Chamberlain (@willchamberlain) August 25, 2019
None of his fans will vote for the likely Republican nominee
What makes him a Republican?
What makes Walsh a Republican? Good question. Though I’m still trying to figure out what makes Captain Cruise Ship a Republican, if you want to know the truth.
Listen, Joe Walsh’s candidacy is a joke.
But because he is now a rabid Trump-hater, the divisive activist media will promote him the same way they did Michael Avenatti and Anthony Scaramucci.
Then again, Joe Walsh’s rabid Trump-hatred is exactly what attracted Bill Kristol to him in the first place.
And much like the news media, any obnoxious bigotry and unhinged lunacy will all be forgiven in Bill Kristol’s eyes so long as you are sufficiently anti-Trump.
Kristol’s sole motivation is his own resentment and loathing of Donald Trump.
That’s the only “principle” Captain Cruise Ship has left.
And if that means selling out what remains of his so-called principles by rallying behind “an intemperate bigot,” well then damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead!
This Walsh thing is really awesome. It’s exposing just how unprincipled the NeverTrumpers really are. They’re JUST a faction out of power having a tantrum over losing control of the GOP’s Xerox machines. As I’ve always said.— John Zmirak (@JZmirak) August 25, 2019
