The old saying goes, “You can’t polish a turd.” Apparently, however, you can still milk it for money out of dumb people because, as another famous saying goes, “A fool and his money are soon parted.” Or put another way, “There’s a sucker born every minute. Case in point: the Lincoln Project.

The people behind the Lincoln Project are geniuses, at least in one sense - they recognized that Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) was real and largely impacted wealthy liberals. When you’ve got leftists with more money than they know what to do with worked up about something, it’s pretty easy to get a nice chunk of it. All you have to do is pretend to care about or have the ability to address whatever it is they are worked up about, make your pitch and watch the checks roll in.

If you’re someone like a David Geffen - more money than you know what to do with and a raging hypocrite when it comes to personal behavior (a supporter of climate change legislation who owns a $590 million diesel-guzzling yacht) - virtue signaling is far more important than actually doing anything substantive. Virtue signaling requires nothing but cutting a check, large to normal people but insignificant to them and probably covered by the amount of wealth they accumulated in the time it took to instruct their accountant to write out the check.
