I'm sure that the writers for National Review would be much happier spending the next four years attacking Biden than defending Trump, just as they were really hoping that they could have spent the last four years attacking Clinton.

Exactly.  With Trump in office, some of the writers actually struggled to defend his actions.  I don't remember all the details, but there was one guy who tweeted something about his difficulty understanding some angle of the GOP's plan for healthcare reform or something like that, and some random right-winger tweeted back that he should try getting his information from a conservative source, instead of relying on the mainstream media, and the original tweeter responded that he was a senior editor for National Review.  I honestly don't feel all that sorry for them; as an institution, it's largely responsible for pushing aside the moderate wing of the GOP, and yet the conservative movement kept going further to the right, to the point where even National Review writers have been denounced as "cucks" or RINOs by the alt-right.  It will be much easier for them to sit back and attack even the most centrist members of Biden's cabinet and call them socialists.

From 2016:

Almost every day, I need to weed the Nazis out of my "notifications" on Twitter. These are people who celebrate the Holocaust (when they're not denying it). They tweet pictures of crematoria and the like.
The "alt" people - the "alt-Right," or "alternative Right" - use the word "cuck" a lot. This stands for "cuckold." The alts believe that the conservatives let dark-skinned people come in and rape their women and take over the country. Hence, they are "cucks."
So we writers at National Review, for example, would be "cuckservatives," led by "William F. Cuckley." That's the way they talk.

Goldwater, who traded running his family's department store for a career in politics, eventually served five terms in the Senate starting in 1952. When running for president, the rough-edged, charismatic Westerner overcame his party's old guard by galvanizing a grassroots coalition of businesspeople, Southerners, Midwesterners and libertarians who felt sidelined by the GOP. It was theirvalues, not those of wealthy Eastern elites, that should prevail in the Republican platform, he argued as he rallied to defeat primary rivals like New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and the Boston Brahmin Henry Cabot Lodge. "Sometimes I think this country would be better off if we could just saw off the Eastern Seaboard and let it float out to sea," he famously told the press in the early 1960s. While Johnson was loudly declaring a War on Poverty, Goldwater waged war on the moderate wing of his own party.

https://www.history.com/news/barry-go​l​dwater-1964-campaign-right-wing-republ​ican

The campaign that began that night and culminated four years later with the capture of one of the world's great political parties was, from the beginning to almost the end, a National Review production. Brent Bozell, my predecessor as NR's Washington correspondent, ghostwrote Goldwater's book, The Conscience of a Conservative.It became the best-selling campaign book of all time and gave Goldwater a national persona. Our publisher, William Rusher, became the indomitable force behind the Draft Goldwater Committee. (For more than six months, every time I ran into Goldwater he would bark at me, "Freeman, tell Rusher to knock it off." Bill Rusher, even his warmest friends would agree, was not a man to knock things off: Indeed, one of the most-quoted of Rusher's Rules for Living decreed: "When you find a good thing, run it into the ground.") William Buckley, known around the office with only a dash of irony as Fearless Leader, became the most compelling public advocate for our occasionally inarticulate and more than occasionally gaffe-prone candidate.

The editor forgot that fascism is about the national rebirth myth, and the belief in leader over nation.  There's no policy to puzzle over or make fit logically.  There's not a budget to balance or a reform philosophy that has to conform to the standards of a modern democracy.  You follow the one who leads you to the promised land, where your people are on top.

It's funny that people who spend decades pushing authoritarian thinking completely miss the forest in front of them.  All of those trees are in the way....

Conservatives in this country - at least those who have not made their peace with the New Deal, and there is serious question whether there are others - are non-licensed nonconformists; and this is dangerous business in a Liberal world, as every editor of this magazine can readily show by pointing to his scars. Radical conservatives in this country have an interesting time of it, for when they are not being suppressed or mutilated by the Liberals, they are being ignored or humiliated by a great many of those of the well-fed Right, whose ignorance and amorality have never been exaggerated for the same reason that one cannot exaggerate infinity.

Old and busted:

What about It, Mitch?
By KEVIN D. WILLIAMSON
August 11, 2017 8:00 AM

Trump's lazy ignorance encompasses much more than health care. In his decades as a vocal NAFTA critic, he has never offered in any specific detail any proposal for reforming any particular provision of NAFTA, and he has on occasion made it clear that he does not know what is actually in the accord. His public statements about tax reform have been all over the map, out-lefting Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren with his attacks on the carried-interest treatment of some financial firms' income and then doing his best impersonation (which is a very poor one) of Larry Kudlow preaching the gospel of pro-growth tax cuts. He once reversed and then reverse-reversed himself on H-1B visas over the course of a few hours. Expecting Donald Trump to act as a chief executive, lead negotiator, and deal-artist on recondite questions of policy and politics is foolish. His petulant tweets at Mitch McConnell - "Baby want sumthin to sign!" - communicate his expectations of himself quite well.

The president is a weak leader, especially when it comes to questions of substance, but McConnell is not, and neither is Speaker of the House Paul Ryan. But - and I write this as an earnest admirer of both men - they may be the wrong men for the job. The wily McConnell and the steadfast Ryan were fine and effective opposition leaders. But they are not in the opposition any more. McConnell has been the Senate majority leader since January 3, 2015. Paul Ryan has passed through a series of senior leadership posts since 2011: chairman of the Budget Committee, chairman of Ways and Means, speaker of the House. They have had a long time to get their legislative acts together. Of course, it would be easier to forge consensus if they had a president who knew or cared about the substance of the policy questions before them, but in the absence of such a president, it falls to the legislative leaders to do what needs doing.

As ridiculous as it is to see the president of these United States bawling on social media that he just wants something to sign, McConnell and Ryan really ought to send him something to sign. If they cannot get that done, then they should make room for new leaders who can.

A few years ago, I was working for a small theater company with office and studio space in midtown Manhattan.  For a few weeks (around the time that Star Trek Beyond came out), Zachary Quinto was there working on a play that was shown at a different company, and during the rehearsal process, he sported a goatee.  There were strict rules against engaging with the talent (especially people rehearsing in our space for outside productions), but I was dying to crack jokes with him about being in the alternate universe.
