Jonathan Chait believes American Spectator stalwart Ross Kaminisky is a sellout. Ross will have more to say on this, no doubt, but for the moment, I’d just like to remind Jonathan of this exchange:

Mr. Chait wanted Donald Trump as the nominee and by golly, thought he’d be a better president than Marco Rubio.
The media, having got what they, and Hillary, and apparently the Russians!, wished for, now want to blame Never Trumpers for noting that as bad as Trump is to them, that Hillary would have been worse (or at least as bad.)
It’s strange. From my Twitter perch, I don’t see a massive shift by Never Trumpers to defend Donald Trump — quite the contrary, in fact. Yesterday, I wrote urging people on the right to calm down and take, at minimum, a wait and see, and then judge attitude. That some few are doing that and noting that the alternative to Trump was evil isn’t exactly a clarion Trump endorsement. It’s more of an acknowledgement of reality.
Jonathan Chait needs to spend more time with the people he’s writing about. He probably has a lot in common with them.
