They might actually hit on something that sticks eventually, but I do think that these days no one in the conservative movement - and this includes all the young Republican staffers who don't know where to click on the website to read a bill - thinks there's anything more to politics than shitposting about made up bullshit that nobody except them even understands let alone cares about.

Once upon a time they'd at least hunt for the "treadmill shrimp" part of the bill to create a fake controversy about.

I'm really not one to imagine a glorious past, and certainly not a glorious past of conservatism, but it really is the case that, "Jonah Goldberg, one of the conservative movement's smarter intellectuals" is a completely reasonable thing to say.

And it's going to keep getting dumber.
