George Conway and other conservatives launch super PAC to take down Trump


You have to wonder how much longer he will be married.

Perhaps George and Kellyanne are some sort of psychic vampires that feed off of drama.

We'll see how this shakes out. I'm happy that there are at least a few Republicans who aren't happy about or won't conform to Trump.

I expect this will be roughly as successful as other efforts by reasonable center-right people to produce an alternative to Trump, such as the Evan McMullin campaign, The Weekly Standard, and Howard Schultz.

Kellyanne knows trump is a piece of shit, she just places her career and paycheck over her morals. Her husband doesn't.

That may cause some family stress, but I'm sure in private she agrees with her husband.

she can probably make a lot more money as a lobbyist or political consultant. If Trump wins next year she probably won't stick around and go for a bigger bucks job.

Or maybe the two of them are playing it for all it's worth? Once the trump merry go round stops, these two are in fat city with book deals, talk show circuit and maybe a mini-series.

Can I quote myself? I can? Thanks.

Here's what I wrote in another thread in response to the OpEd Conway and the others published.

These were the people who were on board with GWB's invasion of Iraq and torture gulags. I'm kinda not impressed with their moral leadership. Rick Wilson is a real piece of shit. He was behind the Max Cleland ad, later bragging in an interview with Cracked, of all places, that he had "no moral center" and would destroy the innocent and guilty alike in the pursuit of his political goals. He also once tweeted that he couldn't understand why no one "curbstomped" the writers at Media Matters. He's a disgusting person who will revert back to being a thoroughgoing shitbag once Trump is out of office.

Again, I am glad to see the in-fighting. I hope they all totally destroy each other. Because anti-Trump Republicans are not our friends. They're still... Republicans. Fuck them.

George has come up with a very popular hashtag for an Impeached President of the United States #IMPOTUS

I would not be surprised if the two of them are the authors of "A Warning by Anonymous".
