As Twitchy reported back in October, even Hillary Clinton super-fan Peter Dao said “there’s no better word” to describe the members of the Lincoln Project than “grifters,” and his Democrat followers agreed, saying that “supporting them beyond [the 2020 election] is a hard no.” A lot of people have been asking what the Lincoln Project is going to do now that President Biden is around the corner. Democrats don’t want to be associated with them, and they’ve burned most of their bridges with the Republican Party; Never-Trumper Bill Kristol, who backed Donald Trump alternative Evan McMullin in 2016, has floated the idea of launching a centrist Owl Party. In other words, they have no idea what to do now, as Politico found in its report.

The group’s purpose — raising money — hasn’t changed. But how are they going to do it now? Kristol believes that “Never-Trumpers can help the Biden administration govern successfully.” Tim Miller asks, “Can we find moderate candidates to run, is that the best thing to do? Is the best thing to do to be more helpful to Biden? I don’t think there’s any clear answers right now.”
“The reality is, is there a market for an anti-Trump Republican Party now?” said Lincoln Project member Stuart Stevens. “I would say no.”
Do they realize that helping the Biden administration govern successfully means that a lot of progressive legislation is going to get passed, right?

They fooled no one. They are surprising no one. They are the appendix of the body politic, if they are even that useful.

So exactly the same as before. Got it.

Grifters who just exploited whoever was dumb enough to give them money. Mission has never changed.

Their sole purpose is to be grifters.

They have always been never republican. They are just admitting it now because to do otherwise is absurd.
— Roscoe Tanner (@Run4Life6) December 17, 2020
They think they can move Biden to the center? These people are more delusional than we originally thought.
— Nate (on the) Stone (@nes_nathan) December 17, 2020
They’ve already reached out to noted centrist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to see how they can work together. It seems they’re waiting for the Office of the President-Elect to announce their positions in the Obama administration.
