One of the fascinating-like-a-car-crash aspects of Trump has been that he's revived (at least temporarily) the careers & profiles of a whole range of discredited dimwits -- Giuliani, Christie, Gingrich -- you thought were gone from public life. But this Bolton news ...

... has gotten me thinking: just how many discredited RW dimwits are *left*? I mean, he's been cycling through the right's Greatest (er, Worst) Hits really quickly. I'm trying to think of discredited RW dimwits he hasn't revived & I'm starting to come up short. Who's left?

So many great answers in this thread! I totally forgot about Rove, Wolfowitz, maybe Palin ... I suppose the discredited-RW-dimwit store never really runs out of stock.
