Like little stars.
Brent Bozell (or L. Brent Bozell III, if you’re not into the whole brevity thing), a nephew of William F. Buckley and a conservative activist and writer, is a pretty silly person.
But the thing about politics is, provided they’ve got friends with a lot of money (or a lot of money themselves), silly people can make a difference! Or at least be a nuisance.
When it comes to Bozell’s right-wing nonprofit, ForAmerica, and its announced goal of getting “the GOP leadership in both the House and the Senate to step aside,” the likelihood is high that Bozell, despite his big talk, will be the latter.
According to a report from CNN, ForAmerica has announced its intention to spend six figures on a digital ad campaign intended to shun GOP leadership from the national stage. And by “GOP leadership,” they don’t just mean Rep. John Boehner and Sen. Mitch McConnell but also Rep. Eric Cantor, Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Sen. John Cornyn.
What have these GOP higher-ups done to deserve expulsion? Bozell told CNN that he’s tired of Republicans approaching Tea Party supporters and other conservative activists in order to “[plead] for our money, our volunteers, our time, our energy and our votes.”
Despite all that he and his ilk have given, Bozell says, there is “not a single conservative accomplishment this so-called ‘leadership’ can point to.”

Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
