#rsrh ‘Zounds*! Frum threatens to leave the GOP!

This is staggering!

Any other nominee [besides Romney or Huntsman] would gravely test my commitment to the political party I’ve supported since I entered the United States as a college student in the fall of 1978.

I mean, do you know what this implies? Why, it implies that David Frum still identifies as a Republican!  God knows why: he hates 95% of the party with the tepid passion of a thousand pictures of the sun.  Seriously, why is Frum still pretending?

PS: Oh, go soak your head.  It would be a tragedy if I got forced out of the Republican party: I’m one of those people who joined up after 9/11, and me being driven away would be a serious danger sign that the GOP was letting one leg of the tripod overrule the desires of the other two.  Dynamic tension between factions is what keeps a party strong.

Frum, on the other hand, is merely a whiner.  It grates.

*It’s short for “God’s wounds.”  Just in case you ever wondered.


  • Loren Heal says:

    The fact that he could threaten to leave over a candidate indicates his weak agreement with the platform.

  • Catseye says:

    I would offer to soak his head in a bucket of water for him but unfortunately I am aware that for some reason it’s illegal in most locations. But he is giving us one of the best possible reasons for NOT nominating Romney or Huntsman! It would disappoint the rhinos.

  • qixlqatl says:

    I’m sure rank and file Republicans are just torn to pieces at the prospect of Mr. Frum leaving the party, and any minute now, he will be inundated with pleas for clemency from a properly chastened base……. any minute now…….. aaaany minute now…..

  • Rob Crawford says:

    But if we lose Frum, we risk losing Rubin and Althouse!

  • qixlqatl says:

    @ Rob Crawford: Who?

  • Aruges says:

    Oh,David. Don’t tease…

  • Ric Locke says:

    I think he should beat his chubby widdle fists on the floor and hold his breath ’til he turns blue.

    Then he can join his soulmates at Occupy DC. I bet he’s an awesome all-night drummer.

    Did the lights just dim?

  • Xasteius says:

    Is he moving to Canada as well (on second thought, that’s way too conservative for Frum)?

  • acat says:

    One wonders if Mr. Frum remembers John Anderson.

    One further wonders if Mr. Frum needs help packing for his journey to complete irrelevance.


  • BigGator5 says:

    Yet one more reason not to nominate Romney.

  • Murgatroyd says:

    No. Read the last three paragraphs again. Frum isn’t saying he’ll leave the Republican party.

    Frum is saying that if the Republican nominee is anyone other than Huntsman or Romney, he’ll vote for Obama.

    Frak him ’til his ears bleed.

    There ain’t three legs. There is one rocket body which embodies all of Conservatism (hint: socons are fiscons are hawks), and two tiny winglets on the sides which we could do without.

    If a pure hawk leaves, it means more than if a libertarian leaves, but not all that much. If a socon leaves, then you’re in trouble.

    Oh, and feel free to leave, Mr. Frum. We’re not holding you back in the slightest.
