Recently, world’s wealthiest man and prospective Twitter overlord Elon Musk announced that, for the first time in his life, he will be voting Republican. Basically, he isn’t leaving the Democratic Party, but they’ve left him.
In the past I voted Democrat, because they were (mostly) the kindness party.
But they have become the party of division & hate, so I can no longer support them and will vote Republican.
Now, watch their dirty tricks campaign against me unfold … 🍿

For what it’s worth, Colorado Democratic Gov. Jared Polis thinks that Musk’s reasoning is flawed, because the Democrats love unity and love and kindness and freedom and prosperity:
Some of us are Democrats because we believe it is the party of unity and love, and yes, kindness too. Also of prosperity and freedom 🇺🇸 https://t.co/uBWp7yxQCJ

Well, not that anyone was asking, but for all the folks out there who might have been wondering what Bill Kristol thinks about this, wonder no more:

Hey, if Bill Kristol wants to put his eggs in Jared Polis’ basket, that’s cool. But it’s also just further confirmation that Bill Kristol has ditched any semblance of conservatism in favor of shiny leftism.
Polis was actually great when it came to COVID, and he deserves props for taking a commonsense approach to getting back to normal. But Polis also signed a bill into law that keeps abortion legal through the entire pregnancy.

The old “Weekly Standard” version of Bill Kristol never would’ve gotten behind something like that.
Are you serious?
Trump broke you.
Killing a baby up to birth Governor is quite the hero you have there 🙄 https://t.co/6WphD19x7S

If nothing else, at least Bill Kristol in his old age finally seems to have gotten comfortable in his own reptilian skin.
In case you wondered if Bill's conservatism was real or all about money…. https://t.co/Q3Rm908Pmn

Kristol seems determined to confirm that that’s the case.
