Bari Weiss, who got hired by the NYT op-ed department away from the WSJ immediately after Bret Stephens made the same jump, tweets:
I know I should be over it, but the speed at which the organized conservative movement became the ideological home of Marion Le Pen, Seb Gorka, Nigel Farage, Dinesh D'Souza and their ilk remains shocking to me.

In response, I looked back nostalgically on the Good Old Days:
Indeed, the organized conservative movement was once led by meritocratic mental giants such as John Podhoretz, Norman Podhoretz, Midge Decter & Elliott Abrams; Bill Kristol, Irving Kristol & Gertrude Himmelfarb; and Donald Kagan, Frederick Kagan, Robert Kagan & Victoria Nuland! https://t.co/SvpZd7B8LS
