The point Judd is missing is those newsletters exist only for other journalists. That’s it. Punchbowl is another DC insider outlet for journalists. Nothing more. But other than that, yeah, wurst person point etc...
Jesus I didn’t even call him Juddle that time. What’s happening to me?
Tom Cotton and others said months ago based on intel reports that COVID lab leak was looking likely. He was called a conspiracy theorist. Now that it’s in NY Mag - it’s trustworthy and a leading hypothesis to be taken seriously.
“When you’re in the middle of an outbreak, wearing a mask might make people feel a bit better. It might even block a droplet. But it is not providing the perfect protection that people think that it is.”
Your donors are dying and they are being replaced by Charlie Kirk. So yeah maybe don’t complain when you are begging 70 year olds for OpEds over talking to college kids about what conservatism’s future holds.

There's almost no single tweet that proves how Trump was able to gain such a stranglehold on the Republican Party than that Kristol tweet. It belongs in The Louvre.
And also today you have Jonah talking to John Bolton about "The future of the Republican party" while simultaneously guffawing at how someone like Charlie Kirk, who goes to college campuses and speaks to kids, can get such a following. Lost the plot. Completely.
Basically cleaning & doing dishes to the score and voiceover of Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
"He scrubbed under a golden burning bulb. He did it alone, containing his rage, as tho ever scrub of a plate kept him from murdering every person in the room"
"Plates were ice cold like a winter morn. They stacked over a foot high, and yet he continued on, almost as if the very act of cleaning kept him distracted from those whom he cooked for and refused to help"
"The guests dined, they laughed. They were merry. More so than in dark weeks gone by."
"And yet, they still refused to help Jesse clean. He stood alone, doing their fine porcelain, his eyes never blinking. As though his guests alone were too much to handle."
