"I find the word 'douchebag' to be quite vulgar," said Project Lincoln's Tom Nichols who is, himself, a pompous douchebag. "Personally, I think the whole name-calling thing is a bit juvenile, but if one is so inclined to go down that path, I prefer a less urban-sounding derogative such as 'ass.'"
Kristol, who advocated for the Iraq War in which the U.S. spent trillions of dollars and resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers, was educated at the prestigous Harvard University, which has a long history of churning out pompous douchebags.
Among those Harvard educated douchebags is failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Romney, the only Republican to vote in favor of President Trump's impeachment, operated the fake Twitter account @PierreDelecto. Delecto has his own concerns about the word 'douchebag.'
"I've been called a pompous douchebag," said Delecto, who once groveled before Trump hoping to be nominated as secretary of state. "I know first-hand that word is thrown around without merit."
One man that fully agrees with the term--comedian Billy Crystal, who is tired of people "occasionally noticing that our names are spelled different but sound alike."
"I'll put my SNL alum up against his Harvard any day," says the man who sat across from Meg Ryan as she faked an orgasm in When Harry Met Sally. "For the life of me, I don't know why he hasn't changed his name yet. I'm older, more talented, and more famous. What a pompous douchebag."
