Bill Kristol — the conservative pundit who was the biggest cheerleader for the Iraq War and Sarah Palin — has an even newer plot to destroy his beloved Republican Party.

“There will be an independent candidate — an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance,” Kristol tweeted over the weekend, sparking speculation he’s recruited Mitt Romney, Condoleezza Rice or a Frankenstein’s monster of Ronald Reagan’s three surviving children.

Kristol promised to announce his alternative to Donald Trump on Thursday morning, predictably enraging the GOP nominee — but based on Kristol’s track record, he’s probably just pushing a war he has no chance of winning.
