Another crack in the establishment creates an interesting decision for the Republican party.

"It won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires," [Conservative commentator and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol] said on "Fox News Sunday." "It really won't, I don't think. I don't really understand why Republicans don't take Obama's offer."

"Really? The Republican Party is going to fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires, half of whom voted Democratic and half of whom live in Hollywood and are hostile?" he asked.

Do they ostracize Kristol as a sell-out who lacks the true patriotism to represent conservatives and double down on stupid, or do they do a u-turn on their ridiculous road to ruin and actually listen to a reasonable statement from within their own ranks?

"It'll bring jobs back to America. It'll bring more revenue."

Well, I guess that answers that. If the just about every single action of their House reps over the last two years is any indication at all, Republicans are dead set against jobs and more revenue, so Kristol is probably on his way out.
